The Rules

Hilarious and spot-on list of all the “insider” rules of road cycling. Including this, which still makes my visits to the beach embarrassing:

RULE 7: Tan lines should be cultivated and kept razor sharp. Under no circumstances should one be rolling up their sleeves or shorts in an effort to somehow diminish one’s tan lines. Sleeveless jerseys are under no circumstances to be employed.

And this, from Greg Lemond, which I only recently realized applies to many things:

RULE 10: It never gets easier, you just go faster. To put it another way, per Greg Henderson: “Training is like fighting with a gorilla. You don’t stop when you’re tired. You stop when the gorilla is tired.”
