What do you do beside mountain biking?
I do bowling, taekwondo, table-tennis, mathematics, counter-strike (all with competitions) and then swimming, badminton, racquetball, rockwall climbing..

I am most proficient in bowling and maths at the moment.

So what else do you do when it gets too cold outside?

I joined my little brothers running club last night. We did about 6 miles at a decent pace and I am in AGONY today, seriously, I was on light duties at work .

My hips, upper front leg muscles and a tendon in my right foot are seriously killing me...

Funny thing is, I can waste him on bike climbs but he wastes me running; different muscle groups I guess .

I play ice hockey in the winter and computer games all the time... I find that if I try to do much more than that I can't find time to do everything.

I take Spinning classes all year long, but at least three times per week in winter. In my experience there is no way you can push yourself as hard and keep yourself in top bike shape. You'd be hard pressed to get a similar workout on a Trainer.

I also lift weights (upper body only) and on days I'm not Spinning I do 30 minutes on an Eliptical machine.

I'm also into the mixed martial arts, focusing on Muay Thai Kickboxing, Boxing, Brazilian JiuJitjsu and compete in submission grappling contests.

At the moment, I'm injuried and cant do anything.. I'm getting so dang antsy being laid up for going on my second week now..

Funny thing is, I been doing full contact martial arts for almost 3 years now, and never got any real injuries... And on my second serious XC on a technicial course, I nearly break my tailbone and am all laid up..

Biking is more dangerous than what you see in Ultimate Fighting Championship!!! hehe

I've since gotten some bicycle armor... Cant wait til I recover enough to try them out!!

During the winter, wrestling and snowboarding. All year round, off roading. I own a 2001 Ford F-250 7.3 liter Powerstroke diesel, banks power of course. It's all of my pride and joy.

Yea, only problem is, Im afraid to do really heavy off roading in it, Id kill myself if I crashed it. I have my eye on a 1988 F-150 beater a friend bought and never used. I can get it for 2,000. maybe in a few years....


[Edit] Oh yes, and THANK YOU for buying an American truck! I hate the nissan titan and that hideous toyota tundra. Toyota is going to get into the 3/4 ton class with a truck they're releasing next year. Man, it must be a joke, it will never compete with the Silverado HD and the F-250. You've got a nice rig though, Chevy trucks kick arse!

I plan to take up skiing this winter. I tried snowboarding last winter and hated it almost the entire time. Going down the mountain sideways is very foreign

Past that I do play bball once in a while but spend most of the riding season on a bike. Or drinking on some patio people watching.
