I commute with my cruiser.

I like to ride as fast as I can through the city.

I ride on the right side of the road so I don't get killed by someone looking for traffic making a right hand turn.

I used to like to see it comming but I had one too many close calls.

BMX on the race track. Cruiser on the beach paths, MTB everywhere else.

i ain't fussy... in nice weather i'll ride anything from ghetto ramps to park to street and hopefully some dirt soon(one thing i haven't tried yet) and in rainy weather, i hit underground car parking structures at malls and practise my manuals and flatland. if i don't ride for more than one day, i get cranky and loose all concentration ability. I LOVE TO BMX.

I ride street and my box jumps for like 1 - 2 hours every day. Every once in a while I will ride through these quad trails near my house to get to my friend's place, where there like thousands of those little factor x kickers and a few sweet dirt jumps. He also has this nice little bank that I can do 180s on and a quarterpipe, but that thing blows.

I ride mostly street and little park when I get to one, but that's still usually like 3-5 ramps in a lot somewhere. There are a few really nice like chill spots around me. Nothing hard, just something to session all day and have a good deal of fun..

i ride skatepark once in a while, but the every skatepark in my area kinda sucks.
http://www.skatespots.com/ny/owl02s.html

i did every grind on that rail besides a hangover toothpick. i did a 3 over the 6 foot pyramid thing . i feebled to hard 180 off the hubba next to it. I barspinned in and out of a smith on that little ledge on top of the jump box, and i almost sterilized myself trying to icepick the spine.

i hate riding park. i ride dirt time to time, but i love street. i love the feel of doing something i'm not supposed to on a bike. No ******* telling me to wear a helmet. i could ride a rail or ledge all day.

Compared to the skatepark out here. All it has is 4 quarter pipes, a mini ramp with grind rail. A crappy spine. There is a 1/2 pipe down the road but Its all rusted and sketchy. Also at the skatepark, theres alot of them street Mountain bikers. They all hang out in a group of about 15 to 20 kids, and they're a bunch of *********. My group of BMXers we have a rule, never go to the park alone. After what those kids did to a friend of mine its not worth it. I swear if I could get all of my buds up there at the same time we'd whoop their asses. So riding out here kinda sucks, if it weren't for those **** up at the skatepark I'd be up there alot more.

one of my friends rides there like every day, and one day he backflipped out of the pool to that bank.

you might like this park but the only thing i like is the handrail.scary the first time you do it. It's a bad picture, so you can't see that in the middle of the rail it's like 3 1/2 feet high. I'm a street guy

Heres another picture from danscomp http://www.danscomp.com/riderz/two/1.jpg
