Another perspective.

This was posted over in the BMX section, but I think it should also be posted over here because of how true it is to freeriding and other sports as well.

Thanks to KinetikBiker04 for finding the video.

The tuck, no handed backflip was intense.

That is true for me too (the OP movie) and has been so for decades whether I ride my mtn bike or my road bike. NOTHING replaces that rush and sense of being there that a bike gives. And no one but another cyclist gets it.

Some friends and I always get that at skate parks. The skates always ask us why do we bike? We just say, "Cuase skating sucks?" and things go sour from there.

Yeah most people dont like it when you say their sport of choice sucks wannagetgood.

yeah i cant even explain it to my self why i like biking so much. Its like an addiction that i dont even understand. A rush that i never got from skating (blades or boarding) the only thing that comes close is snowboarding and even that doesnt quite make it.

Not that I don't mind skaters. Just they throw drinks and swear at us. We just fighting back.
