Southern California has long been a mecca for cyclists from around the globe, and LA boasts a combination of sunshine, mountain roads, and Pacific coastline that make it an outstanding riding location - not to mention the melting pot culture of the city itself. With so much exciting riding available, Rapha is pleased to announce the official opening of our Los Angeles clubhouse at 1347 4th Street in Santa Monica, offering fine food, espresso, and the full range of Rapha products. Stay tuned for a packed agenda of rides, events, and live race coverage.
Los Angeles boasts yearly sunshine and moderate temperatures making it perfect for cycling with coastal views, varied climbing and world-class riding. Members of the LA chapter enjoy cycling throughout Southern California, from San Diego all the way north to Santa Barbara. Perfect roads surround the city and the heaviest of hitters from the Tour of California, Mount Baldy, leads a litany of excellent climbs, including Deer Creek, Yerba Buena and Angeles Crest. Members host weekly rides around their local roads in addition to the programming via the local chapter co-ordinator. A monthly social event, weekly destination rides, local race participation and supported larger fondos are all staples in the greater Los Angeles community within the chapter. With a Clubhouse destined for the west side of town, members will find themselves at the front door to the Pacific Coast Highway and Santa Monica Mountains.
