The Velominati embrace cycling as a way of life, as obsessed with style, heritage, authenticity, and wisdom as with performance. This is their bible.
The Rules is an essential part of every cyclist’s kit - whether you’re riding to work or training to be the next Bradley Wiggins or Victoria Pendleton. Winning awards and gaining millions of viewers, Velominati.com has become an online cycling mecca. In 92 canonical rules, these masters of the peloton share tips on gear, tell stories from cycling’s legendary hardmen, and enforce the etiquette of the road - with a healthy, often sinister sense of humor. Practical and motivating (Rule #12: the correct number of bikes to own is N + 1, where N is the number of bikes currently owned), unflinching and authoritative (Rule #9: If you’re out riding in bad weather, it means you are a badass. Period.), The Rules will help listeners find their cycling passion, whether it’s in high alpine passes or tight velodrome races, in the garage before the ride or in the bar afterward. Vive la Vie Velominatus.

Every cyclist should hear this book. Every cyclist should give a copy of this book to the new hard charging young bucks in the group ride. Funny, entertaining and a must read for every cyclist.
There are few audiobooks that cause me to laugh out loud - this is one of them. Although wearing headphones during a ride is officially a violation of the Rules, I can't think of better entertainment while out there suffering. Bravo!
Absolutely hilarious. Straight faced delivery is great. Fine details of the art form abound.
The details...the subtle and infinite details brought to life.
Listen to this if you are a cyclist and you will not only learn, but laugh what ass you have off.
All true and written and narrated in the best of English. A must read for both those who believe they know what cycling is about and those who want to know more about it!
As a recent student of cycling, "The Rules ", been the most important thing I have listened to in the last year. Funny and informative !
