Reading List: Simon Mottram
YCN Library — Free to Members of YCN

The latest event in our popular series will see us welcome the Rapha Founder to the YCN Library, inviting him to introduce six of his favourite books to our shelves.

Simon founded the cycling business Rapha in 2004. Thanks largely to his love for detail and unerring focus on helping cycling reach its fullest potential, Rapha has moved quickly through the gears, building a cult-like following in the process. The company today has over 350 employees, shops around the world and is even expanding into the luxury holiday market.

2015 saw the launch of Rapha Cycling Club, which has already enlisted more than 7,000 members globally by offering, as Simon puts it in an interview for our Members' Magazine, "the right mix of community, content and commerce." 

Mondial, a publication for the Rapha Cycling Club faithful, lavishly reflects the brand's premium and international outlook with eclectic stories and beautiful art direction.

As part of our popular Reading Lists series, Simon will be pedalling from his Kings Cross headquarters to our Shoreditch Library on the evening of 28th February. He'll introduce six books that have informed his thinking and share the lessons he's taken from them.

We'd love for you to join us.
