    Barnes Bridge Ladies - I’m inferring that that may not be the club for you! We share a boathouse with Cygnet who are lovely guys and super friendly - may not be the most high performance club in the river but that might be ok if you’re time constrained and looking for leisure rather than rowing at Henley

    Oh no! I’ve fallen in more times than I care to remember. Self rescue is impressive. I’m itching to get my single off the rack but it’s been so long and I’m nervous I’ve forgotten. Went out in an 8 the other morning with a load of people I’ve been rowing with on and off for YEARS and though we weren’t speedy it was smooth as silk.

    No chance of getting there, but this was fascinating (and ripe for follow-ups). Thank you BToB (and @itsbruce)

    On fit, I wouldn’t assume women’s geo unless it actually fits her. As I understand women’s groups assumes proportionally shorter arms / body and longer legs (am sure someone will be here soon to correct me and /or explain all about stack and reach ). That’s not me at all and none of my bikes have had women’s geo. Also, be prepared to spend a bit more on top to get a properly comfortable / fitting saddle (and definitely worth getting sit bones measured when it becomes possible).

    The house looks quite ‘lived in’ now, which is what made me think it was still the original family. I may be wrong but I don’t think they’ve gone slick minimalism inside. I’d v happily live in one of the town houses next door

    Excellent. Not sure I need to give more detail on the house as all you modernist design fiends have all clearly been looking at the listing on the Modern House.

    There are loads of domestic modernist classics scattered round there and over into Highgate and Belsize Park - we’ve been using Stefi Orazi’s ‘Perambulations’ as a guide to explore - might be a good niche BToB ride one day!

    It has been, I think. I thought it was still in the ownership of the original architect’s family, but apparently not.
