Lodovico Pignatti-Morano
A Rapha Continental Bootleg: Riders, Builders

The Rapha Continental is an online journal published by the cycling gear company Rapha. In it, riders and bicycle designers chronicle their adventures and “epic rides” in a muscular and often self-aggrandizing prose. According to the site’s introduction “the Continental is our commitment to the lost art of cycling and the glory of suffering.” This artist’s book compiles excerpts from the online journal and organizes them by author, whether he be a rider or a builder. The result is a poetic homage to cycling-world personages Ira Ryan and Richard Sachs.
