I used to be way into mountain biking when I was a little younger. I keep wanting to get back into it but it's one of those things that just keeps getting put on the back burner unfortunately.

Dust off that old Mountain bike and take it for a spin on a short trail. Get a little exercise and some love from the outdoors, you will thank yourself later.

I wish I had one to dust off. . . I might need to craigs list it and see what I can find.

I'm a bicycle messenger and used to ride for institute of sport here in OZ and a div 2 pro team.

My happy place is on a mountain road early in the morning with the fog in the valley below thinking of what late hop additions would make my next brew so good!

I've been known to tear up the trail on my mtn bike -- it's great for killing hangovers and for making me thirsty to drink beer! The only problem is the wind is so bad up here March thru May; then the monsoons in June through August; and then Autumn Wind....

but, I still get in some time on the ol' Trex...

Year round bicycle commuter here. I have a couple fixed gear bikes for my commute and errands, a recumbent for longer road rides and a Pugsley for goofing around off-road and in the snow.

Most of my riding is commuting and general errands. I do try to get a few long rides on the recumbent over the summer and usually a century or two. I bought the Pugsley with the intention of riding off-road summer and winter but havn't ridden it much the last year or so. I mostly use it for neighborhood rides with my young daughter and wife.

So what is the fixie you refer to in your username. I have a Mercier Kilo TT (cheap track bike) with bull horns and a front brake and a CrossCheck with a fixed wheelset for my primary all weather bike.

All homebrewers should be bike enthusiests as well, something about these two hobbies just makes sense together. I am currently only road biking since I don't have a mountain bike and probably don't see one in my future this season. I also have a track bike I keep fixed for commuting to work and the like...amazing what one of those things will do for your pedalstroke.

I ride my bike to work everyday, for about 1.5 years now. It's just an old parts bike, not 2 parts the same brand or style, but it works great. Good for snow, trails, pavement, or the occasional yard or two. Gotta love the Kent Trails up here, miles and miles of paved bike trails, with some dirt trails poking off it everywhere.

Road cyclist here. With a wife and two small children, my riding has been sporadic. I do look forward to riding when I get the chance.
Last fall, I went over my bars and severed all the ligaments in my right thumb. Descents are still a bit of a white knuckle experience.
I do enjoy the tranquility of riding in silence on a back country road or after a long hill climb.
