Velominatus: snoov

Order: Level 2 Velominatus

Location: Dundee, Scotland

Got a bike to get fit in 2009 (Tricross). Entered 2011 Etape Caledonia to motivate myself after not really riding the bike. Trained from February and completed 130km in 4.5 hours on an Allez I was given by a guy who showed me the rules. Now I'm on the road to rule compliance and watch every RR I can find although I've ALWAYS been fascinated by the Tour. Bike handling skills from BMX racing and halfpipe action which also claimed my two front teeth.

The Rules specify the principles of good taste in configuration and setup of our machines, but within those principles lies almost infinite room for personal taste.It seems in s...

The view from Strahlubnaig.December 21st, 2013, at latitude 56 ½ degrees North, a little before 9am, and of course not fully light yet in this small corner of north west Europe, where the shortest day grudgingly gives us 6h 50m of what can be loosely described as ‘daylight’. Continue reading...

The home ground of Manchester United Football Club, Old Trafford, is colloquially known around the world as the Theatre of Dreams. It holds a revered place in the hearts of the club’s supporters, and even those of other teams; it’s an icon of football, and sport in general. Millions have gone there to watch their heroes play, but how ma...

Cogals (pronounce it correctly: kog-al) are meetings of like-minded misfits brought together by the promise of beer, preceded by a bike ride. Cogals are free, open to all, organized by our fellow Velominati and are always followed by consumption of post-ride Recovery Ales and merriment. These are gatherings of unbridled observance of Rule #4...
