My preferred way of keeping fit is nothing more demanding than a good walk as often as possible. Others choose different sports and at weekends you can usually see a few rowers practising on the River Aire through Hirst Woods. Bradford Amateur Rowing Club has its clubhouse further along by the weir so on this stretch of the river you can observe everything, from very experienced crews to complete novices. I've quite often witnessed a dramatic capsize, though thankfully they seem to surface again quite quickly! I am frequently amused listening to the coxes shouting at their crews. This one saw me with my camera and shouted: 'You're on camera - look amazing!' I hope you agree they do look amazing. LOL!
