    Bit of road biking for general fitness, would love to say snowboarding but I reckon we get 1 day a year here.

    Climbing and mountaineering would be my also ran but the gear is gathering dust now.

    Football and running. Football has been number 1 all my life but mountain biking is now preferred option of the 3, although running is the one I do the most.

    Do more road biking and running than mountain biking. Mainly because to get anywhere half decent to mountain bike I have to drive.

    Jedi – The ripon tri was hot – let us wear wear suits though which was a real bonus after last years no wet suit swim – I am crap at running and even Crapper(is that a word) when its warm. But i didnt stop on the run..although it felt like i could have walked faster!!!!!!!!!!!

    Looking at Tri bikes this morning though so its not put me off for a old lad.

    Oh, yeah, and other sports:

    I’ve got this:

    Which considering how much it cost, doesn’t get rallied/used nearly enough………..

    Rugby, occasional cricket (takes far too long for a game), and darts.

    Little bit of archery (not as much as I used to though).

    At the moment mostly sea kayak racing and rock climbing, though not sure about “as well as” given I’ve not been on a mountain bike since October. When I’m not injured I mountain unicycle (if that’s distinct from mountain biking), run and orienteer as well.

    Swimming, done some open water stuff (not this year yet)
    Freediving. Joined a local group for some pool sessions which was very relaxing.
    Next I need to do a foundation course and open water course.

    Been some time since I played ultimate frisbee, touch rugby or any cricket.

    Road biking and very occasionally running. I want to get a power rack for my spare room so I can get back into lifting again, I miss squats!

    Oops pushed send before I could mention my small collection of longboard skateboards.
    Just fun to chill with kids on scooters and balance bikes etc.
    Bought a board to ride parks and bowls too.

    Climbing and hillwalking though i have not had time to do much of either the last 3 or 4 years, cant remember the last time i tied on – I was even thinking of ditching the climbing gear the other day during clear out but can’t quite bring myself to do so yet.

    Pea shooting, once a year (yesterday)
    Still team world champ.

    Used to do a lot of hillwalking until my hips put a stop to it. I now coach a rugby team, do a bit of road riding, shooting, used to shoot clays competitively, but was never very good, and MTBing has filled that space (and taken over the fiscal drain it provided). I also used to dive, until family responsibilities came along, and I saw a mate get a spinal bend on a training dive. I played Judo for a while but between that, rugby and motorcycling picked up more than a dozen fracture injuries and a few years ago it was time to admit my body was too damaged to carry on competitively. Now it’s just MTB for adrenaline. I know I’m on borrowed time as ill need both hips replacing soon, but for the time being I’m loving learning to jump and shred while I still can.

    I used to play basketball to a fairly decent standard. Unfortunately a very small scene in the UK, hardly anyone plays outside school :/

    I quite like a bit of bouldering, although I’ve not been for ages and I’m rubbish at it.

    Used to play a reasonable amount of ultimate frisbee, would quite like to get back into a bit again.

    Triathlon training is taking up most of my time right now. Used to do a lot of aikido but changing jobs has seen that one off but I’d love to get back to it.

    Tri training might finish after this month, not sure what to fill my time with then.

    Snowboarding… I’ve been addicted for the last 20 years. Bought 4 boards last winter and another last week. I ride bikes just so I can get the smallest sniff of the flow I get when I’m on a board.

    Climbing/bouldering, kayaking and a bit of running now and again.

    Snowboarding, swimming, walking, and going to the gym.

    What do you construe as a ‘sport’?
    If Sea Fishing’s a sport, then that’s what I do. Which is dead handy when your’e 65 miles from the sea. ๐Ÿ˜•

    Climbing/bouldering, “banned” from running but strangely “allowed” to trail run, being pushed to do Tri at the moment – resisting so far ๐Ÿ˜›

    Used to do a lot of tris, but gave up in 2013. Became too expensive and got bored in the end. Went up to HIM but insufficient time to train properly for full IM

    Endurance events/ ultra marathons

    Want to do some adventure racing and orienteering. Might start a night running XC running club

    Tennis every week and occassional cricket. Played county cricket and rugby in my youth.

    Golf – ready for abuse

    Skiing. Gave up on climbing and parapenting recently. Hard to fit with family responsibilities. Miss canoeing too.

    Road riding, cyclocross, running, fishing & have been known to do a road rally or two..

    Work. Looking after my kids. Either I spend too much time with my family or the people above have more hours in the day than I do.

    Done Judo since I was knee high to a grasshopper and still love it. Coach now as well as just general randori, entered a masters competition last year and got my butt kicked but still loved the nervous anticipation before the fight.

    Snowboard/ski holiday once a year.

    Two wee boys means limited time for all but as they get bigger that should get better just as my body finally gives up!

    If I don’t get a weeks Ski and boarding in a year I’m like a bear with a sore head. I also enjoy surfing, walking (not a sport I know), motorcycling, car fettling / track days.

    Up until recently Ju jitsu (traditional, none of this brazillian nonsense) but a back injury has put a stop to that ๐Ÿ™

    Just starting on setting up my own business so that has taken up a lot of time/cash. Nearly there, just some minor details and I should be up and trading in a couple of months. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Surfing in preference to riding when it’s good, road bike when time is short or mud is deep, snowboarding for longer than I care to remember, a bit of climbing. Some writing and photography
