NorCal Cyclocross Art Event Recap - @raphacycleclub

This past Friday I got a chance to swing by the Rapha Cycle Club for their Cyclocross art exhibit. It was a packed house filled with good beer, fresh authentic Belgian Waffles provided by So Good, and people who love cycling.

art show curator Brian Vernor and Rapha's Emily Haddad a bit before the flurry of people hit the shop.

It was pretty awesome to see a fellow angeleno working at rapha. He made the move up north as well.

Another nice surprise was to meet Matthew Falk and his Vanilla Speedvagon. He mentioned the purchase process was pretty exciting and stressful. The exciting: Fly up to get sized and ride with Sasha white. The Stressful: When it came to pick the color, he chose the mystery color then had to wait 6months to see it. The best quote was " I was trying to convince myself that if it shows up and im not 100% happy, I need to learn to love it." Kinda like an arranged marriage yeah? He Also joked that in the fine print when you sign up for one, they have a clause to expect this attention. Ha! Well I'd say the Mystery color they chose is pretty damn sweet.

He was kind enough to let me snap a few shots of him and his Bicycle.
Given that it was so crowded I couldn't get a full body shot, hate me.
