....this is obviously the right place for these....

"It’s all about the bike.
It is, absolutely, without question, unequivocally, about the bike.  Anyone who says otherwise is obviously a twatwaffle."

When the chips are down, only Rule 5 counts. Smile

In our house its all about 'rule 5'! Even the Little Rowers know the meaning of 'rule 5' although the initial explanation was re-worded somewhat....

Rule 9 is really just Rule 5 re-worded.  Smile

A pretty solid set of rules all round.  Rule 12 is one that I seem fixated on...

Rule 64 is a good one, particularly as it can be implemented without compromising Rule 5, if one repeatedly ascends and descends a testing gradient in training.

Rule 12 can be circumvented by getting one's other half to become a Weekend Warrior as well. Now it's just the bank manager to worry about...Smile

Totally agree. Mrs G leads and I follow. She is Weekend Warrior No1 and I try to be a Weekend Warrior No2 in our household. Simply unbelieveable that I got her into biking* and has taken it up like a duck to water. As for the bank manager, when you are married to a tax lawyer they control the purse strings  Wink

* Mrs SR - you might be interested to know that Mrs G was a rower once. Maybe that's why she is so bloody good at cycling!

Your logic is flawed, I fear. I was a rower once, and it's not done me much good on the bike - other than in embracing Rule 5, of course!

Good rowers, on the other hand do seem to take well to cycling. Smile

Ok, I should have said she was a good rower and that why she is a bloody good cyclist! I am sure you were a good rower too, SR! Just being modest.   Wink

Let's just say that my forum name could realistically have been "9th Man in the Eight". Sad

I used to have a fab cartoon of 8 coxes shouting at 1 rower. I have scoured the internet but can't find it anywhere.  Sad
