What I do outside of riding:

Making money
Driving my Maserati
Banging supermodels.

As you can see I'm fairly boring.

Since taking up randonneuring I'm more one dimensional, but the hobbies I still squeak in are: web surfing, volunteering, walking, hiking, instigating, unicycling.

comic books and toys. My wife says i'm more of a kid than our kids. Also I am always listening to music. I like searching out new artists, less mainstream.

Yeah, fun but lots of work to write. This one was started last July. I don't want to get flamed for going way off topic here so I'll PM the details to you. Thanks for asking...

Spending as much time as possible with the fam - you don't get do-overs there

in terms of hobbies?

- like to read history, and interesting works on craftmanship
- attempting to try craftsmanship I read about (usually terrible results but a blast to do)
- play ice hockey. Lots and lots of ice hockey
- boxing
- archery, just took delivery of a 130lb English longbow. Needless to say I need a better backstop, just put an arrow through the back of my garage
- skateboarding and rollerblading with my kids
- coaching soccer
- getting back into HO trains and working on cars

oh yeah...and a detailed long-term research project to find the best beer in the world. This requires a great deal of experimentation. Repeated experimentation with comparisons against a standard. Whichchanges weekly.

Other than the beer, try very hard to share my hobbies with my family, and work with their hobbies. (Wife doesn't like beer and kids are too young)

Yep. I can get 3-4 shots off before my arms feel like they will fall off.

Time to hit the gym!

Same here. I used to play 80 rounds a year and was a 2 now I have two kids under age 3 and played a total of 8 rounds last year. Bought my first road bike last year to do the tour de cure century and was totally smitten with riding.

My other hobbies are running and chasing kids.

Thank God someone is normal around here.

Anyway, I'm writing an opera for the New York Met.

I'm putting the the finishing touches on a cold fusion project.

And I'm being beatified by my church this weekend.
