One of them would be black, but Rule #9 prohibits me from discussing the other colors.

There's lots of classic and vintage rules. Here is a small sampling:


1) Ride in a straight line. Violators shall ride the rollers until this deficit is overcome.

2) Do not speed up when your turn at the front of the paceline comes. This is annoying to all, and especially to the rider who just finished a pull.

3) Do not half-wheel, ever.

4) Don't pedal backwards when using a campy NR bottom bracket.

5) Descend in the drops.

6) Don't wear the jersey of a team that you do not belong to. The jersey of your favorite pro team may be worn on only extremely rare and special occasions.

7) Socks should be white, but no one cares if they are not.

8) Close the Gap

9) Wave to other cyclists

10) Rides of 50-80 miles may require ont banana. Rides of 80+ miles may require 2 bananas.

10) HTFU


Many of the The Rules of the Velominati were vintage rules as well, but many were not.

Red bikes score higher than other colors.
