    The more I get into my other hobbies, the less I'm out on the bike. Lately it's been dual sport motorcycling and fly fishing.

    Other things I do is backpacking and sea kayaking. I also bowl but thankfully that doesn't impact anything other than my wallet.

    Tinted fog and taillights
    Nitto NT-555r tires (255 50R17 rear, 235 45R 17 front)

    This car does qualify for the local shows as it is a muscle car (it is a GT)

    I probably would not have entered shows had it not been for this piece they allowed a couple of years ago:

    No kidding. I tend to back the car into places anymore.
    I forgot to mention I wrinkle-finished the tail panel between the taillights (I seem to have a thing for wrinkle-finish, wrinkle-finished Trek anyone).

    A friend of mine from the car shows liked my car enough that he went out and bought an '07 Saleen PJ Heritage.

    Another friend who just bought an '06 GT is dressing up his similar to mine (CDC chin spoiler, I'm trying to convince him on the Saleen PJ wing).

    I must be doing something right.

    This is a cool photo-heavy thread. Lots of good pics in here too!

    I love to ski in the winter, though it's been a crappy year in Tahoe. I also hit the gym a lot...don't want to have that Chris Froome body type! I mean, who wants their wrist to be the same size as their biceps? But my favorite "other" activity is climbing to the top of mountains, especially in the Eastern Sierra...so I can see things like this:








    I also have a lot of non-physical hobbies, but my favorite is collecting and photographing rocks and mineral specimens:

    Hiking mountains is one of my favorite activities. I don't get to do it often though. You did a pretty dang good job of capturing the view from a mountain top. My photos never seem to do it justice.

    Just looking up Sierra. Have you done Mount Whitney? I'm not really a climber, just a hiker. I've checked off 5 14ers from Colorado. I'd like to get them all.

    EDIT: Just flipped through the thread. It looks like we have got a lot of hikers around here. Maybe we should start a Roadies and Hiking thread. But seriously, it's cool to see pictures of hikes. I think this will be the first summer in 5 years that I won't be able to get out to Colorado to explore - I'm saving for Richmond 2015. Priorities. Also cool to see the picture with all the LPs. I just have one crate so far. I'm shutting down buying more for a while though.

    I've almost stopped everything else but the cycling. But some other hobbies:
    Juggling, and other similar stuff. I go to juggling festivals and enjoy all the toys - unicycling, poi spinning, hoops, slacklining, etc.
    Swimming. Started for tri but never did a triathlon. Swimming is hard, so I keep at it to beat it.
    I ran for a while, but haven't in about half a year since my last Spartan Beast race.
    Gymnastics! I loove coaching boys competitive gymnastics. I haven't practiced in a while, since getting serious about bike racing. Considering ditching engineering to coach full time.

    Nothing unique compared to other here: take photos, play guitar sometimes, wannabe graphic designer/web developer, mostly get enjoyment from watching the little one run around

    I'm rather surprised that among all these young and middle-aged guys I haven't seen one who participates in any ball sport. What's up with that?

    I still list basketball as one of my favorite athletic endeavors, even at my ripe old age.

    I used to play soccer in high school and played in an over 30 rec league a few years ago, it's definitely my favorite sport (although I love football and enjoy recreational basketball too). I pulled a few muscles in my last go at soccer, as I went into it without any real conditioning, and then I moved back east and don't have any buddies to play with (I know I should branch out and play with random people, but the introvert in me hates that idea). But I'd love to play again

    I have never enjoyed playing basketball. It's our recovery week between indoor and outdoor track, so a lot of the guys on the team are playing basketball. I have opted to take to the roads for some cycling.

    I've never been a big football fan or player either. I did play baseball for 8 years and then played year-round one year and decided I didn't like it. I have since lost my glove. A few of my teammates have been bringing a set of gloves and a baseball to practice and I've played my first games of catch in 7 years. I do miss it a bit, but it's difficult to get a pick-up game of baseball going...

    Sand volleyball. Perhaps I should've added this to my list considering I spend an hour on the courts every night in summer.

    I'm a genealogy buff myself, I've been doing it the past three years since my son was born. He (and my wife) have some fun lineage, including Mayflower passengers and the group that originally settled Boston. Good times

    Forgot to mention lacrosse - I play for s***s and giggles now, and help coach my girls. Fun sport, but my wife will kill me if I add another competitive contact sport!

    The last time I played baseball was, I think, in Grade 9 or 10 ... my last year of compulsory physical education in school. I was SO happy when that class finished, and I never had to play baseball or volleyball again.

    Hobbies - those are things people do when they're not working I've gathered. I need to work less.
    But when I'm not working in the summer there's a lot of dragging myself and my kids around the lake behind the boat, chasing them while kayaking (they have cute little kayaks and I chase them in my 17' sea kayak ), and well, biking! All 3 of them have been on 2 wheels before the age of 4 (ask me my opinion of balance bikes!).
    I like Miata's, so everyone gets rides on sunny days.
    I also coach swimming (and swim myself), so that's a year-round hobby. In the winter, skiing takes up weekends when we're not swimming.

    Neat thread - some of you have really cool hobbies!

    Rugby. I've played with and against guys who have played for their national sides from about a half dozen countries. I fear my last retirement from playing may actually be that.

    I garden a bit, hard work when it means carrying compost up a 50 foot hill.

    I used to hike a bit and may again soon. Found someone else interested in exploring the hard to reach parts of the Dawn Mine, and he is into technical climbing which will be good as some parts may include some exposure.
    Perish any man who suspects that these men either did or suffered anything unseemly.
