Video: Rapha Continental The Movie

Rapha Continental – The Movie from RAPHA on Vimeo.

“We didn’t create this style of riding. In fact, we’ve been inspired by hundreds of like-minded cyclists we’ve met on roads all across the country. To a man (or woman), they are riders who have a penchant for gravel, who delight in a local’s tale, and who share our appetite to push the boundaries of distance and ability.”

Gag me with a spoon! This is lame… carry your own gear, cameras, food, etc…then you’ll have my respect you yuppie trust fund losers – a 20 min product placement ad for Rapha, specialized and others. I’ll ride in the rain any day I have someone to pick me up – I’ll ride naked, big whoop.

I don’t think anyone is trying to hide the advertisement aspect of this. The first clue of that is the fact that it’s called the RAPHA Continental.

Just because it was supported by a company for that purpose doesn’t make the riding any less impressive, the imagery any less beautiful and the riders any less deserving of our respect.
