    Just wondering what you all do aside from cycling. Since I am a full-time student in high school, I partake in activities there: I was entering my first season as a cross country runner, but am unfortunately out for most of it due to getting a stress fracture injury of my distal fibula: A part of the ankle. I am also a member of my high school's honors choir West Singers, and Madrigal Choir, Chamber Singers. Music is a big program at my high school since we have been nationally recognized and our men's choir, Men of Note, were three time national champions in a row! Pretty impressive, eh?

    If you have any interest, look up Cherry Hill West Singers, or Cherry Hill West Men of Note and there are a couple quality videos on YouTube. :0

    So, if you are up to it, post what you do as a hobby outside of cycling and go into detail as much as you see fit.

    well unfortunately up here in the Northwest we get snow and the roads are bad for biking from Dec.-middle of March, so sitting inside on the trainers watching TV is kinda boring so hence the XC-skiing

    I used to get two track days out of a set using tire warmers. That got expensive quick.

    Cycling is a lot cheaper. :)

    Now, I run a mellow pace at track days and I use DOT street tires which hold up for 2-4 track days depending on the track surface and temp.

    The video in my other post is from April of this year and I'm on Metzeler M3 street tires.

    Sweet video! I used to go every year to the Daytona speedway to watch the Teams tire testing before the first race of the season. I am more of a MotoGP fan though. I wish we had more MotoGP races over here in this country! Rossi is the man!!!:D

    I am fairly new to cycling as well. My other hobbies include swimming, running, hiking, and cross-country skiing. I am hoping to complete a couple Sprint distance triathlons next summer and am immensely looking forward to it. :)

    i like going over to teamsmack to witness all the nobodies attempt their opinions on riders of quality status who will more than likely never post there again. that's what you get when you're a teamsmacker, backstabbed by weak ass, fat and old overweight gossip girl hillbillies. none of whom can actually ride a bike.

    good riddance.

    Besides racing road bikes, I ride mountain and bmx bikes, work at a bike shop, and am currently putting together a cat 4/5 team (which will hopefully become a cat 3 team this season) in southern new jersey. Don't do a whole lot of things outside of the bike world, I guess...
