Aside from being a committed cyclist, what's your next biggest hobby?

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Aside from being a committed cyclist, what's your next biggest hobby?

Work... That and cycling are what I have time for. Unless you count hanging out as a hobby.

playing guitar - been playing for nearly half my life, classically trained and all that jazz, my mind is never quiet usually have a song/melody stuck in my head

so in some ways, like cycling, playing music is not really a hobby but a substantial part of my life

Cooking. Eating. Hence the cycling.

Hockey is actually my first sport. But it works pretty well with riding.
