In the world there is naught so wondrous as the sun
They say mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun, but so too do road riders chasing miles under blue skies. With the spring season comes extra motivation, camaraderie and of course, the heat. The sensation of sun on skin, and how good it feels to be kissed by that most ‘wondrous’ orb is a blessing but also something to protect yourself from.
Salty jerseys and laser etched tan lines, those hard and hazy days when you arrive home as the sunshine dips and the temperature finally begins to fade; the glow of satisfaction and vitamin D, these things and more define the warmer season for a road rider, and alongside the longer days in the saddle, you need the right kit to help you perform to your very best. So for all you heat seekers out there, let there be light and let there be Rapha Lightweight.
The latest collection of products for the southern hemisphere was shot on an out and back route from Sydney – a 145km loop over gravel sections, under overhanging rocks and through forests scented by Eucalyptus trees.
