Fairlight Strael on display at Rapha Cycle Club on edge of City ... but other riders had their rides stolen after finishing race

If you're based in or near London and want to take a close look at the Fairlight Strael that James Hayden rode to victory in the fifth edition of the Transcontinental Race this earlier this month, you're in luck - it wil be on display for an indefinite time at the Rapha Cycle Club in Spitalfields.

If you can't get along in person to the venue, which is at 61-63 Brushfield St, London E1 6AA,  you can see all the details of his bike at the link below.

After crossing the Continent in nine days, you'd have thought Hayden would take a break from two-wheeled adventures across Europe - but he's about to set off on another , albeit a non-pedal powered one.

At least Hayden still has his bike. A couple of finishers had their ones stolen on the way home, according to posts on the Transcontinental Race's Facebook page.


Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
