Rapha is proud to announce that the Rapha Cycle Club Sydney is now open.
Serving the finest espresso and showing racing from the world’s greatest races on three large screen TVs, the Rapha Cycle Club Sydney is the ideal meeting place for road riders and a luxury start or finish to any ride.
CCSYD Events and Race Screenings
All major road racing is screened within the Cycle Club throughout the racing calendar. On occasions screened live, but in most cases the full coverage is recorded and aired first thing the following morning. The perfect compliment to your coffee post your morning ride. Further screenings and highlights are aired for lunchtime and in the evenings from 6pm.
For key races and stages we will host late night screenings to capture the live racing. These have been extremely popular and will be on a first come first serve basis. Details of these nights will be broadcast prior to any event.
CCSYD Club Rides
Riding is central to the Cycle Club experience. We are lucky in Sydney to have some of the most spectacular rides and scenery right on our doorstep. We have a number of Club Rides which leave the Cycle Club every week, with routes that change regularly so you can experience the best that Sydney has to offer.
The location of the Cycle Club is a convenient place to meet, and in most cases half way between work and home. If you are on one of our rides and would like to leave a bag with us then please speak to one of our staff.
If you would like to join any of our rides for the first time, then we recommend calling by or telephoning us to discuss further so we can be sure to place you in the correct ride/ group for your safety and enjoyment.
If you are visiting Sydney from interstate or overseas we can easily arrange a high-end road bike and helmet for you to hire. It is the best way to view the city and surrounding landscape and is highly recommended by a number of oversees visitors who have joined us already.
Wednesday Morning ride
The Wednesday Club Run covers between 30-40km. Due to the popularity of this ride we split the group into three or four bunches for safety and to cater for different abilities.
Meet at the Cycle Club from 5:45am for a quick espresso; then roll at 6:00am sharp. As well as Cycle Club Staff we have a number of experienced ride leaders to help to oversee the rides. Riders return to the Cycle Club for about 7:00-7:15 for Coffee and breakfast.
To help you decide which bunch to roll with here is a quick guide:
- CC1 – This is a swift pace averaging 26-28km/h as a guide. The route does change weekly and can be either a faster flat ride down to La parouse or one that takes in Sydney’s hills and beaches.
- CC2 – This is a steadier pace averaging around 20-23km/hr as a guide. Again the route does change but often takes in la Parouse, Maroubra and some of the eastern beaches.
- Mystery Ride – This is a fast pace ride with some unexpectedtwists and turns. Averaging 26-30km/h as a guide.
If you are unsure of which ride to join then please speak to our Cycle Club Staff or Ride Leaders, or call us to discuss further.
Friday Women’s Club Ride
Sydney Women don’t sit back. Every Friday morning at 5:45am Rapha Ladies embark on an adventure. Encompassing many levels and skills, the routes chosen offer a challenge for everyone. Weaving through the streets exploring off the beaten tracks where it’s sometimes hard to believe you are still in the city. The Rapha women’s rides have become infamous for their memorable experiences. Coffee and a warm atmosphere awaits your return to the Rapha Cycle Club.
Each week new riders join our Women’s Rides. All female road riders are welcome to drop by the Rapha Cycle Club to chat with Alison or Klara. Before riding with us it is advised to discuss further so we can place you in the right ride and group for your safety and enjoyment.
Keep an eye out for the evening rides, which promise beauty and excitement.
Sunday Club Ride
The Sunday Club ride provides the opportunity to go for a longer spin, challenge yourself and take in some of the spectacular scenery. Designed to be more of an adventure, the route will change from week to week. Sometimes local such as the six beaches and on other occasions further afield such as Palm Beach and back. We usually alternate between a local ride of hills and beaches followed the next week by a longer distance ride.
Rides range from 60k to 120k.
Due to the distance involved, please do sign-up for the Sunday ride. We have a sign on sheet by the entrance of the CC, alternatively call us and we will put your name on the list. If you have not ridden with us before, and/or long distance then it is advised to give us a call to discuss further so we can be sure of your safety.
For any further information please drop by and speak to any of our Cycle Club staff or call us on (02) 9380 9717.
