Hopefully this thread doesn't exist elsewhere...What other activities/hobbies do you enjoy?

For me...

Playing electric and acoustic guitar
Homebrewing (Yes, beer!)
Hiking (NH Mountains are my favorite)
Attending concerts (Look for me at your local Pearl Jam or My Morning Jacket concerts)
Model airplanes (I know its dorky but I'm a WWII plane nerd)
Photography
Kayaking/Canoeing

I've been playing it since my freshman year of high school. I've gotten kind of rusty but I can still play it.

The impressionist exhibit is my favorite one from the Art Institute. I can spend hours in there and never get bored.

I can't have many hobbies as I get overwhelmed in having interest in many things.
Besides cycling, I'm into hiking and grilling. That's all.
