Join us at Rapha London on Pride weekend for a series of events, aimed at bringing the LGBTQ+ cycling community and allies together to meet, celebrate and ride.
Cycling hasn't historically been the most representative of sports when it comes to openly LGBTQ+ people, but here in the UK, fantastic new initiatives like ALL IN racing and inclusive clubs and collectives are leading the way to foster a more welcoming culture. We're here to champion and elevate those voices.
July 1: Pride Night at Rapha London, 7.30pm
Join LGBTQ+ riders from the UK cycling community. Speakers include Josh Jones from ALL IN racing, Kitty Dennis from Steezy Collective, Clay Davies from Spirit BSS and Jess Morgan from Rapha and NLTCBMBC. They'll be discussing their experiences and the intersection between LGBTQ+ identities and cycling.
Complimentary alcohol-free cocktails kindly provided by Pentire.
