Rapha opens Manchester Cycle Club

Rapha Cycle Club Manchester opened on Friday (26th September).

Located in St Ann’s Alley, Manchester, M2 6AJ, the Club will be open 8 till 8 Monday to Friday, then 10 ’till 6 at weekends.

Rapha opened its first permanent UK bricks and mortar retail space in London in the summer of 2012.

As you’d expect, rides are key to the Club’s offering, with the opening weekend seeing some special Women’s Rides take place, while regular rides include social and steady/fast every Saturday, weekday morning and evening spins and more.
