    The biggest in terms of time commitment is boating. It's an every weekend activity for nine months out of the year. It's also like a floating condo so we go there even when we don't leave the dock. The good part is I combine it with cycling. That means getting laughs in my cycling clothes from all the people leaving at 7:00 for fishing with their breakfast beer
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    Been playing the guitar for about 10 years now, and recently started playing airsoft. I also target shoot and load my own ammunition, if that counts as a hobby. Hobbies be expensive, can't afford as many as some of you

    coaching youth football
    shooting/archery/hunting
    snowmobiling
    motorcycles (on and off-road)
    guitar


    is sitting on the patio on a hot summer day with a cold margarita in my hand a hobby??

    coaching is about the only thing I do lately though, we're a year-round football house, 2 boys go to private QB coach during the off-season and I work with them indoor to reinforce what they are learning and prepare their diet and weightlifting regimens around it. 3 young kids (one disabled), work, and day to day life eats up EVERY second of my day.

    I'm a nationals level slalom skier. I've got a world ranking but down the list enough that I won't qualify for the Sr World Championships this year. So hopefully, I'll be able to qualify when they're held again in 2016. Cycling is part of my training off the water.

    Other than cycling:

    - Coaching my son's hockey team
    - I play hockey with a bunch of similarly aged and (un)skilled guys.
    - Drinking beer with aforementioned guys
    - Homebrewing
    - Camping. Well, RV-ing actually. I'm not sleeping on the ground for anyone.
    - Photography
    - Reading. I enjoy biographies and WWII history.

    Ride the trainer/rollers in the winter. Ride the roads in the spring/summer/fall.

    Cheers!

    You'll have to let me know where you shop! I'm budgeting around $2K for my next ride. And my shop kills me on tires, tubes, repairs, clothes, replacement parts, etc.

    Other hobbies? You'd probably find a lot of motorcycle enthusiasts on here. I am one of ‘em. Love my RC51. Also I am a passable guitar player. I try to practive every day.

    And I notice this thread is started by a Kiwi? I love to travel, and I am headed to NZ in the very near future! Can’t wait!

    Oh yeah, don't get me wrong I've spent well over $1,000 on cycling gear this month alone (and I haven't been out on a ride since October), but when I actually go out on a ride it doesn't cost me anything.

    As for expensive, track days between tires, brake pads,rotors, insurance, and track fees can easily hit $1000 a day. And that's a fraction of the cost of actually racing.
    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    I've wanted to get into that because it looks like freakin' amazing training, but frankly I find the gym I visited a little intimidating. But maybe I was just being a head-case. Everyone there seemed super polite. Just really intense.

    Yeah, I did one track day and after not coming up with the scratch for another in the next few months I kinda thought, wrong hobby for me. I'll stick to sport touring.

    In my head that plays out as the gym members yelling very loudly things like,"HELLO, HOW ARE YOU DOING TODAY! EXCUSE ME LET ME HOLD THE DOOR FOR YOU!!" Something tells me that is not what you meant though.

    Golf, Downhill Skiing, and sailing. Although sailing has been sparse lately due to my bike. I also do Yoga. Yoga keeps my wife happy and keeps me flexible.
