“By the time we had delivered the satchel to Sydney we had drawn an indirect line across the Australian continent, crossing three states, exhausted and elated.”
The Rapha Continental Australia’s latest adventure is the Satchel Ride. In 1912, a relay race was held to see how effective the bicycle was at dispatching military telegrams across Australia. There were over 60 relay points on a route between Adelaide and Sydney. The original ride of over 1150 miles was completed in 68 hours. The Rapha Continental set out to celebrate this achievement carrying their very own handmade satchel. See the full film next week.
