I started racing BMX at age 11 and have always been involved with cycling in one way or another. However, I've always found other sports/activities that I enjoy and help keep my mind fresh. Plus, it's sometimes a good break from cycling.
I enjoy mechanics, so I bought a 1970 Chevy K10 Pick-up. It's a 4x4 and I'm planning on restoring it. I've already rebuilt the whole drivetrain and brake system. I installed front disc brakes and new rear drum brakes. All new(used) front and rear axles, new drive-shafts...etc.
I also spent a lot of time involved in water sports. I did a lot of water-skiing. I was very involved with Windsurfing for a number of years. I Scuba Dive. I surf. I love to sail. I'd like to try kite-surfing, but need to learn to use a stunt kite first.
The reason I bring this up, is that now, with my Wife and Son, I decided to buy a tandemn kayak. Picked it up last night. I can't wait to take it on it's maiden voyage this weekend.
I decided on an Ocean Kayak Cabo. Lime Green with blue hawaiian print seatbacks. The shop didn't have a set of matching paddles that I like, so they're on order. I'll post a pic when I get everything together.
So, what does everyone else do other than cycling?
