    frequency/skill/ride quality?? (not what you think)

    I've noticed that when I increase my rides to more than two per week, I tend to crash more, lose handling skills and the general ride quality goes down. If I stay at two rides, it does'nt matter which two, I ride like a ... well, a really good rider. I rarely crash and my speed is constant. I handle obstacles with ease, for the most part and really come home feeling as though I did something worth while, not to mention fun.
    I am wondering what works for others. I assume my situation is due to my other physical intrests and my physical job. It sounds like over training but nothing else suffers, only the rides. I don't mean I come completely unglued, but there is a noticable difference. Any one else have a weird self limiter? This isn't really a question so much as a "I showed you mine, now show me yours" kind of post.

    i ride around 3 times a week, but they are all from wednsday-saturday. i dont really see what you described, like every once in a while il get home and say "well that was a waste of time that i will never get back'' most of the time i have great rides because i have been waiting untill the end of the week to get on my bike.

    I think it's just off days. Everyone has them once in a while. I also have off days when my balance is not that good and stupid mistakes causes crashes. It happens to the best of us. I also ride everyday
