The Rules is an essential part of every cyclist’s kit—whether you’re riding to work or training to be the next Greg LeMond or Marianne Vos. Since 2009, Velominati has become an online cycling mecca, where The Rules helped to guide Cyclists towards The Way of the Cycling Disciple.
In this book, the Keepers go beyond The Rules as they exist on Velominati.com; we’ve organized them into V sections, and wrote exclusive new content surrounding each of the 95 canonical Rules. We 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, unflinching and authoritative, The Rules will help Cyclists everywhere find a passion to do the most important thing of all: love riding your bike, and keep riding your bike.
The US release represents a refresh refreshed from the UK edition released last June; the Prologue has been given a facelift and Greg LeMond – the only American Tour de France winner – graciously wrote the Foreword. The US Release also contains four Rules which were not included in the UK release; two of them appeared on the site as they were divined, but the other two were reserved for the release of the book.
US edition available for sale May 5th, 2014 – with new Rules and a new Foreword by Greg LeMond, the only American Tour de France winner.
