KNIGHTS OF SUFFERLANDRIA

There are those who know how to suffer. And there are those who do not know how not to suffer.

There are those who look pain in the face and laugh. There are those who can’t look pain in the face because pain is too scared to look up from the pounding it’s getting.

Yes, there are Sufferlandrians. And then there are Knights of Sufferlandria.

To become a Knight of Sufferlandria, the highest honor accorded by the Sufferlandrian Ministry of Madness, one must simply do 10 Sufferfest videos, back-to-back. And there you have it: you’re a Knight.

Rules for a Knight of Sufferlandria attempt:

  1. 1. Please see a doctor. You’re not right and are in desperate need of help.
  2. 2. You must do 10 Sufferfest videos, back-to-back. You can do them in any order you like. You may not do any video more than once. And you may NOT do The Long Scream, Extra Shot or Half is Easy. Chrysalis can be used but only as a bike-only workout.
  3. 3. You must HAVE BOUGHT all the videos you are attempting. For group attempts, EITHER the facility must have bought the Group edition of the videos OR each individual in the group must have purchased their own set of videos. We will check our records.
  4. 4. You may rest 10 minutes between videos. No more. But less is fine.
  5. 5. You must publicly record the event somehow – power files, photos, Facebook posts and tweets during the event to show progress. You should post them on our Facebook page as you’re going through the Knighthood and when you finish!
  6. 6. We do not set any kind of performance benchmark for your ride (i.e., how hard you have to go). However, we insist that you do a ride in which you Suffer (at a level you can see through the entire effort) and which, most importantly, of which you are proud of yourself for having given all you can give.
  7. 7. You really should, although its not necessary, try to raise money for a good cause.

If you complete 10 videos back to back, but have not done so according to these rules, then we will not grant the Knighthood.

What do you get in return for your attempt?

1. The immense satisfaction of having done something truly incredible and awe-inspiring and a little bit mad.
2. A nice(ish) certificate with your name on it, and a very exclusive bike decal (in white and black no less!).
3. An invitation to join the *very**exclusive* Knights of Sufferlandria Facebook group.
4. We will verily then address your honourable self as Sir or Dame, whatever the case may be, from thence forward.
