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

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?

Mine used to be competitive badminton, until spine docs asked me how important impact sports were to me, and that if I were to continue playing badminton I'd have to undergo spinal surgery very soon. I decided bicycle racing was more important to me. I'm now into online Scrabble. My hobbies used to be analog wristwatches and DIY audio. Photography became a side business. All three became too expensive.
