Rule# 25. Any physical activity other than cycling is STRONGLY FROWNED UPON. This includes any form of running or swimming and their derivatives (this includes walking). The ONLY TWO other sports with a recognized degree of euro are: cross-country skiing and long track speed skating.
Sustained 40mph winds and temps in the teens forced me to break rule #25 this weekend.
On the other hand, rule #2 strongly states that "Training shall be based solely on feel, while racing shall be guided by sensations and instinct: that is to say, “soul.” The Euro Cyclist will never accept tried or tested scientific training methods." Guess I could interpret that as a little cross training is OK?
