The Promised Land

Have I told you how much I enjoy Rapha Products. Well, I love them, and love 'em or hate 'em, that company is genius when it comes to marketing, craftmanship and delivering product to a hungry market. And I am proud to say they have made a devout follower out of me. This weekend my dear sweet hubby and I took a trip up north to San Fransisco for a belated 6 year Anniversary trip. No bikes, that was my anniversary gift to hubby, but I did manage to sneak in a trip to the Promised Land- the Rapha Club. It was better than I thought, everything you could possibly want, and they seemed to have it in stock. Except of course for the one thing hubby wanted, the Anquetil Club jersey. Sorry John, but you will have it by this weekend, the least I could do for the wonderful trip.

We also ambled across the GG bridge to Above Category in Mill Valley. And if I ever win the lottery, that is the first shop I'm going to go crazy in. Pegorreti, Moots, and Parlee oh my! Northern California is quite possibly one of the most beautiful areas in the country, and hopefully I'll be able to put rubber to asphalt up there sometime in the future.


  1. Funnily enough, I was queuing for coffee at the Rapha Mobile Cycle Club at the British national championships on Sunday when one of the TV commentators for the race complimented me on my "Real Women Love Men With Shaved Legs" T-shirt!

    Have to wait til Saturday evening to see if I managed to get it on TV though...

  2. I love it. Let me know if you get air time.
