OK, I'm 53 and just got into cycling in May after not riding for a few decades. I'm basically a road guy due to a bad back, but come from a MX background. I've been reading books and magazines that talk about putting up the road bike and dragging out the MTB for winter months due to the cold, wet weather.
My area is pretty dry for most of the winter (No Cal/Sacramento) so I probably will be able to road ride most of the winter, but just trying to figure out if I should do MTB with or instead of road when things are cold and wet, or just stay on the road? I have an OLD MTB that I ride, so I can go both ways when the feeling hits me but was just curious what the more seasoned riders thought about MTB riding in the off season for cross-training?
So should I become a bi-cycxual?
