Watch the Tour at the Rapha London Cycle Club and you might be in line for a free drink

Tomorrow (Saturday) is the first birthday of the Rapha London Cycle Club, and in celebration of this and the final stages of the Tour, Rapha are inviting you to celebrate at the club.

If you rode this year’s L’Étape du Tour, you can get yourself a free drink as long as you rock up with your race number on Saturday. This is the day that the pros ride the same route that L’Étape covered a fortnight ago, and you can watch the action at the club.

You’ll probably know that Rapha provide Team Sky’s clothing, and in the event of a Sky win on Sunday, they’ll be offering free champagne to all viewers… so if you fancy some bubbly, get yourself along to Brewer Street

Of course, Rapha will be even happier if you buy some of the Team Sky off-the-bike Supporters range – the polo shirt, for example, is £30 – or the replica kit.

The complete range is here.

Free drink if you rode to etape, whilst you're in perhaps you would like to buy an authentic see thru Froome Sky jersey size small only £179.99 (or whatever.)

Yeah....brilliant UK cycling brand, providing the kit for the potential Tour winner, in the most successful UK cycling team ever, celebrating a (hopeful) British Tour winner, giving free drinks and a place to come together, and you can buy Sky tops as cheap as £30 or get exactly what Froome is wearing for the full price....awesome...love it...what's not to like.

ps. I do not, nor ever have worked for Rapha, and have nothing to gain from this post. I just like balancing the Rapha Bashing, as I think there is so much more to celebrate than to complain about

Happy Friday everyone...good riding...

..or not...it's optional, not required....if you want it you can buy it..if not, you could perhaps just have a nice coffee. No pressure. Up to you.

I can recommend the espresso.

A bit further east, Look Mum No Hands in Old Street is also an excellent place to catch the action.
