Losing the love…
I fell out of love with Mountain Biking last spring.Posted 7 years ago
I am now a member of a Road club and as a treat to myself I bought an expensive plastic bike. All my riding plans for this year involve being on the road with maybe the odd off road excursion thrown in.
Now just need to save up for one of these.
Edit; Fitted with Campag Super Secord though. Dura Ace is just wrong!!ahwilesSubscriber
i’m struggling for motivation to do anything at the moment, it’s just a seasonal/darkness thing, but it’s not helped by all the mud. a 3 hour ride at the weekend has left me with a weeks worth of post-work cleaning/fettling/drying.
so, until the daylight comes back, i’ll be a grumpy old bear who can’t be bothered to ride much.
but i’m ok with it.Posted 7 years agojames-oMember
It’s all bikes, it’s all just pedalling ) so just don’t stop pedalling.
if you ride it’s good, road or MTB or something in between, it doesn’t matter. I just think that riding is too good to limit yourself to a ‘discipline’.
i’ve had phases of not riding an MTB much for 2 years or so, then hardly ridden a road bike in the last 6 months. But i’ve always loved bikes.
Change is good for you. load that bike up and go bivvi-ing – watch the sun rise alone, somewhere remote – it’s potentially a life-changing thing. Mountain biking isn’t just about hitting lines and head angle debates and rebound settings )Posted 7 years agoourmaninthenorthSubscriber
Have gradually been transferring MTB love t0 road love for the last few years. Tried my hand at road racing last year (without any success – not fit enough, got ill, changed jobs).
Going to do more CX this year,. Across the summer on the SS CX I’ve just thrown together, then race on a geared crosser.
I’m dealing with some depression right now, and riding bikes has been really helping. But the best rides ar ethe ones without expectations.Posted 7 years agoDaRC_LSubscriber
Was losing the love towards the back end of last year
– December with snow and ice just couldn’t be bothered.
Got a load of new cold weather stuff (roubaix longs etc…) for xmas and finished the re-build of my hardtail with a 3 speed SA hub and am looking forward to it again.Posted 7 years ago
