The Rapha Cycle Club will close its Manhattan doors come October and we’ll be joining our friends at the closing party on September 30. Ride the emotional rollercoaster thataccompanies most farewells by alternately slamming local beer from Kelso Brewing and Stumptown Coffee served up by Third Rail. DJ Bryce Rackford will keep things moving along faster than a Shimano Sora crankset. It’s sad to see a good thing go, but we know how to make it fun and so does Rapha. In their own words, “Let’s burn this mother down.”

Austin was an intern at Ace Hotel New York until just a few days ago and we did an exit interview with him to mark the occasion. Here he is at his farewell party with America’s favorite stuffed bobcat, Bob Katz, several fire hazards, and a 40 of Olde E. And here’s a bit about Austin:

Hi, Austin. What was your favorite thing about interning at Ace New York?
Simple, the staff at Ace.  Such an eclectic and interesting group of people to work with. Lots of great relationships built.  That and starting my day with a cup of Stumptown coffee!The strangest thing anyone asked you to do?
The time I was asked to set the honey bees free from the bee hive on the Ace rooftop (thanks, Whitney!) which required a full-blown “bee suit.”  No stings suffered but I was later forced to walk through the lobby with the suit on — slightly awkward.
What now? I hear tell of a backpack in Europe. Confirm or Deny.
Back to school at the University of Michigan for my third year — studying Business with a minor in Art & Design. No backpacking plans for the short-term…
We’ll miss you.
Lots of love for the Ace blog…Austin
