I loved this cafe in Surry Hills, the great bike parking, the cycling curios and magazines. Seems to have gone very quietly . https://cyclingtips.com/2018/10/whats-happening-at-rapha-an-intervi...

I drove past on Wednesday and noticed it had gone.  Cycling and Cafe industries have a lot more supply than demand

Did I really need to read all that Kim:)? Sold out to Walmart family, whaaat!

Rapha cc  members can now hang out at Lumieres Cafe in Bourke St according to Facebook. 

fairly shallow analysis there, Bob.

In August, 2017, Rapha founder Simon Mottram sold a majority share of his company to RZC Investments for a reported 200 million pounds. The principals of RZC are Stuart and Tom Walton, grandsons of Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton. The two are avid cyclists and have transformed Wal-Mart’s hometown of Bentonville, Arkansas into a mountain bike destination.

Thats me! Got your attention tho ;)

Pity

My overseas mates used to make it a point to drop in. And Rapha cafes used to be a location to visit and try to snare a country specific article / shop ride.
