Most cyclists would be familiar with Velominati’s – Keeper of the Cog: “The Rules”.
No where does it include a rule about the lead up to your ride. Coach Steve taught me a while back, that if you put your bike on the back of your car to go on a bike ride then you are kitten killer. I feel the need to include this as part of “The Rules” and would appreciate comments/additions with regards to this rule.
If you have to drive your bike in order to go on a bike ride then you are douche. In addition, if you drive your car to the gym you are a douche.
Exceptions to the rule are:
• Your bike ride must be a minimum start distance of 50kms.
• You are taking your bike to be serviced as it is completely broken beyond home repair.
• Your bike is broken, or you are broken (due to a fall) and you have had to call in your Vehicle Response Unit.
• You are travelling interstate.
Think of the kittens!
