    old dog new tricks?

    so im moving and saw my old bmx in the garage. a diamondback. ive been thinking about starting to ride again. i rode alot no tricks just hitting ramps like when i was 10 and 11 and then rode a little bit a couple years ago on a friends bike doing bunny hops and trying 180s and got the diamondback then work took over my life and i started riding road bikes and single speeds/fixed gear for commuting etc. now i have weekends off and have free time and seeing my old bike got me itching to ride again.but im 24 now.
    am i too old to start riding and trying to learn tricks?
    did anyone else on here start riding kinda late?

    im kinda in the same boat. i rode a bunch until i was 14 or so and then I stopped for a while. since then Ill ride for a week or so and then not ride for a few months/year due to school/work taking over my life or just getting bored riding by myself. I havent ridden much since last summer but have been trying to get back into it recently. I think you still have plenty of time. mccoy and some others are still riding and they're in their 30s and 40s. im 22 btw and have progressed about 2 weeks worth in the past 6 years or so haha.

    exact same boat ha. theres never anyone to ride with here really either and its hard to progress with no one to ride with to push each other harder.

    You're too old when you are six feet under.

    I started at eighteen, stopped around the middle twenties and now I'm back into it and pushing forty.

    Ride on.
