    Why do so many people at Cambridge think rowing is so good? Loads of people who dont even like sport try it and every1 that does it seriously is REALLY boring.

    It's just a big tradition at the university and many people get sucked in to all the buzz that exists around the sport. As long as there is enough hype even the most boring sports can become exciting!

    I wouldn't row, but I like the idea of getting in on the hype and supporting my college/uni team

    It's one of the toughest sports you will (n)ever know. A lot of it comes from the Boat Race rivalry thing, obviously. But it's impressive in a way that Cambridge with its stereotypes is associated with a sport that involves serious guts.

    Anyway OP, give it a go...your target is 5k on an indoor rower in 17:30...yeah right!!
