Rapha Cycle Club: Nice coffee

So that's that. The Tour De France has pedalled its last mile up the Champs Eleysees after 3,642 kilometres of drama and the odd flat tyre.

I'd planned to catch at least one of the stages at the Rapha Cycle Club in Clerkenwell Road.

We stopped off there for a coffee on Friday, just in time to join the lunchtime crew for the first few yards of stage 18.

That turned out to be fairly uneventful, which was good really because there were too many Rapha oriented distractions for me to concentrate on the TV for too long.

Not least in the basement, which houses an exhibition of historic bikes, from the single speed of the good old days days, to the Garmin Felt carbon beauty from last year's Tour, each with their own little story and related jersey.

It's definitely worth a look, if only to sample some of the tastiest coffee this side of Columbia.

That's the country, not the team.

Oh, and Cav did go that day, somewhat.
