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.
This Rapha Continental Bootleg by artist, writer and rider Ludovico Pignatti Morano channels the voices of mythical frame builders builders Ira Ryan and Richard Sachs to produce an intense and intimate account of the author’s cycling obsession: the frames, the rides, the poetic mentality of it all.
