    Default Cycling

    Hey hey "Other Sports", i ride a bike... alot.



    I will soon be buying that bike (probably), for the princely sum of £650... I do just about 70 miles a week, and this will become my new commuting machine, and then maybe also be used for abit of cardio training.

    Opinions?

    Anybody else on SBC ride much?

    Its big brother (a slightly higher spec of the same bike) is £1,150... For you yanks that's about $2,300

    Being honest though, i'd use it every day for the next few years, lets call it 650 days (at VERY least), £1 a day for transport and exercise... its not bad when you think about how much tax, insurance, and petrol for a car is.

    nice Vivica!

    My dad rides these rode bikes as well. He's been into it since the early 80s and he still rides it to this day when he finds time. I think the bike he has now is custom built, buying all his parts separately and then put it together. I ride his old one every now and then. He's a big cycling fan and he always watches and records the Tour de France and other cycling events that come on tv. I also have friends who ride road bikes called "free gear" bikes, no gears no brakes. They're pretty into it.

    Keep on riding Vivica!!

    So who rides bikes? I ride downhill a fair bit. Nothing like flying down rough hill with drops, and jumps. I ride a 2008 Norco... ohh ohh, .. you'll see. I'll throw up a picture later of my bike. (I just dont have a picture on me right now)

    I used to be into BMX. I have an 05 Haro SX Comp I used for racing, but now I put on some parts to make it more of a dirt trails bike. I barely ride anymore, but nothing is more refreshing than a relaxing aimless bike ride.

    I like messing around with free ride mountain biking. my house as ditches all around which are sick to ride, and I have some wood to make little set ups, and there is a tree in my backyard that is like transition which is fun to ride up a little bit. I just did it for awhile tonight.

    I like cycling.. maybe its because i'm partically african, and have better slow twitch muscle fibre recruitment.

    either way, cyclings the best sport ever.
