Rapha Cycle Club Osaka is now open.
Last Saturday, 7th April, saw the opening party for Rapha Cycle Club Osaka, with approximately 60 guests. The following Sunday night, a group of about 50 arrived for the live screening of Paris-Roubaix to watch Tom Boonen blast to victory.
Being the second largest and arguably the most attractive city in Japan, Osaka is coloured with personalities, great food, and a love of celebration. Following the success of the Rapha Cycle Club Tokyo last year, Rapha Cycle Club Osaka will again will be hosting a series of events, exhibitions and, in partnership with the J-Sports channel, plenty of live road racing.
Osaka is the gastronomic capital of the island, with choice coffee selections from Toyama’s St. Berries, pastries from Ashiya’s Pan Time, and Rapha-labeled wine from Katsunuma’s Haramo Wine. Food delivery will also be arranged by neighbouring friends at the Spanish restaurant, Taberna Esquina.
