First race outside London

Rapha Nocturne

Come experience riders in the night – or race yourself! 

The Nocturne is a bike festival with a variety of disciplines including Fixed Gear Crit, Elite Crit and even a Cargo Bike race! The event has been held ten times in London, and this year the event is expanding outside the UK borders for the first time, as the organizers have chosen Copenhagen – the bike capital of the world – for hosting a Nocturne event. It will go down August 19th in the old meat district of Vesterbro.

Don´t chicken out

You´re attached to the bike, and have to be comitted at every corner. Your feet are constantly moving and you have to trust your bike and put an effort into it and not chicken out.

Come out and show what you´ve got

The fixie scene in Denmark… I´ve been here a couple of times, and I´ve seen quite a few bikes around, not a huge amount of fixie bikes, but there´s definitely a culture here,  I just really haven´t had the time to network with it  – Hopefully the Nocturne will bring out some riders. I know that riders from other countries will come to race here, and it will be competitive, so hopefully some local riders will come out and show what they´ve got! That´s what it´s all about really… racing with other people from other countries –  which is awesome!”

GripGrab is based on a passion for cycling and running and the dream of building a brand of products that makes these sports enjoyable no matter how cold, wet or windy it is. Great quality accessories make the difference between being too hot, or too cold, between being wet or dry, aerodynamic or flappy and between being seen or not seen. These are the products we live and breathe for.
