The traditional cycling season may be nearly over, but October is going to be a busy month for cycling fans in London. Along with the Cycle Show and Cycling Film Festival taking place in the capital, clothing company Rapha has added it's own event to the diary on October 10-21.
Combining a photography exhibition, clothing boutique, evening events and organised rides, Rapha are promising that its Rouleur Exhibition will be 'an essential attraction for all cycling fans'.
The company are using the event as a launch pad for its new Rouleur photography book, featuring 250 images from the cycling world. Many of the photos will be on display at the show, along with the chance to purchase individual prints and meet the photographers.
Naturally, Rapha will have its full autumn/winter collection of cycle clothing aimed specifically for the road market on show.
The exhibition takes place at the Host Gallery, 1 Honduras Street, London EC1Y 0TH.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
