Hi I'm Andrea from Bolton just thought I'd say hi 👋👋
Im new to all this so definately learning the ropes!!
I first came across indoor rowing earlier this summer when I first got on a rower to do a challenge at the gym and won. I love running and weight lifting so thought this would provide another element to my training and fitness!! So far it's definately proving a challenge...one im enjoying though!!
Thanks to David Plumb for helping me navigate my way round and helping me with last month's challenge!!
Looking forward to being part of the team!!

Welcome Andrea and thank you for revealing the identity of the new superpower lady in Boat 1 CTC last month.

There's a lot of history here and indoor rowing is a bigger sport than you might imagine with many challenges (individual or team) but take your time to look around and if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

Hi all, Ben from Australia here.
