Gates are open!By Kevin Wood / April 15, 2010 To celebrate the opening of the Causeway Gates, we’re going to row 2000m! And also to re-test our Paleo Challengers. Great instructional video on rowing. I'm going to pick on Pierre here, because I can. Notice his arms and knees are bent at the same time? On the way forward (the recovery), your legs should stay straight until the bar passes them.

Landscaping is a fun job!
Do you guys need help?
Suuure. Dave doesn’t want to row again, that’s why.
