Rapha has always had a focus on city riding, realising that many riders do indeed use cycling as their main form of transport but also recognising the need to look smart and stylish whilst doing it.
We’ve known that new cycling guides have been planned for quite a while now, and Rapa have announced a release date of ‘sometime this month’. For £25, you get 8 books each focussing on the best riding spots and cafés in the city.
Published by Thames & Hudson and produced by the designer/writer duo Andrew Edwards and Max Leonard
Stylish pocket-sized guides to the major cycling cities of Europe

The collection is presented in an exclusively designed slipcase and features the following eight cities:
- Antwerp/ Ghent
- Exclusive slipcase
