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!
No matter what stage you are at: principante amateur, seasoned rider, pro, there are nuggets of gold in this text for everyone.
My favourite (after rule 5 "V") is never to hold your bike over your head like mountain bikers do... It may be acceptable if you are escaping from jail,
So well read too. My fave audible purchase in seven years of being a member.
Very humorous yet educational audio book about bicycling. Those who enjoy biking will love to hear the views of the velo lumati and the stories about the biking legends the rules were derived from.
Listening to this basically sums up my 30 year hobby of riding bikes. All too true....and even feeling slightly embarrassing at the same time. We've all been there! Also, having it narrated by a bike geek really makes it even better.
Thank you Sean!
Very very funny and expertly read. As with all great humor, there is much truth in this volume. You'll be either laughing or being humbled as this book is poking its finger into the chest of your particular insecurities.
