Rapha Deep Winter Over Shoes Review

The Rapha Deep Winter Overshoes were actually the first Rapha product I’ve ever purchased. I bought them last winter because I was looking for a Overshoe that would enable me to ride all winter long.

Annadel State Park

Our campground was a nice secluded side near a flowing river, with a hill behind us, and the large meadow in front. I quickly pulled out my camping clothes and started to layer up. Given that I run cold, I knew that it was a race against time to stay warm. The trick was to not let myself get cold
