Road Rash (or Running/Biking)

Postby ron caron » 09 Aug 2005, 13:20

5-10 miles on a mountain bike? That's gotta be a workout. I haven't tried surfing, but I'll take your word for it, Theny. Looks like good exercise.

My best workout on the bike so far was 10 miles with underinflated tires b/c I'm an idiot. That's when I learned to check the tires before every ride.

Riding in under-inflated tires is not a good time at all.

there is enough of a variety of trails near me that i can do a longer flat ride or a short, steep single track ride...
the mountain i live next to hosts mountain bike races...i've gone to watch, and i ride the same trails as these guys, but they are psycho...just the pipes that they have makes stand in awe...i wish i could climb better

fighting fire in the summer with 60 pounds of gear on is the ultimate workout/weight loss plan though

i always wanted learn how to surf...looks hella fun

^seriously. I'd love to know how to surf. Theny, if I ever come to Florida, Ima hunt you down, and you better teach me how to fuckin surf.

On biking, they have trails set up, one trail is downtown, which I love. It's the Queen's Quay, yeah it sounds kinda gay, but for your body and legs, it does okay.

No problem __. I'll teach you how to get an air. :D Surfing is really, really, fun. I hate "surfers" though. They're usually pretty big douches.

For sure. I remember being in 7th grade and paddling out to meet my friends one day. The waves were really good so there were a lot of surfers out that day. I cut off some guy who had to be in his 30's and the dude bitched me out for like 5 minutes in front of everybody and threatened to kick my ass. I was 13. This guy was at least 35. I hate surfers.

Anyone ever biked in Hawaii? I'm wondering if I can schedule some road, trail, or off-road biking during my trip there next month. I don't want to take a whole week off, plus I imagine, like everything else, biking is better on the islands.

I saw a ton of bikers on the Big Island. We stayed just off the bike course for the Ironman triathalon. Make sure you bring plenty of water because there aren't a lot of rest stops to refill. However there are lots of great biking roads on that island, both for road and trail bikes.

Oahu struck me as generally too congested for great biking, but there were enough people out that apparently plenty of people disagree with me.

That's exactly what I thought. I really wish I would have gotten that. I need a vacation.

Cool. Thanks, Frank. Bike rental is definitely on the itinerary.

It's probably just a coincidence, BD and Theny. But word to the wise, September is off-peak at a lot of good travel destinations. May want to keep that in mind when setting a wedding date. :wink:

Does it count as a double post if there's a 3-week lag? :) (No. -FTT) I watched some of the Ironman Wisconsin yesterday, specifically part of the 112-mile bike portion. I have no idea how the athletes, on an unseasonably hot 91-degree day, survived, let alone excelled. The mph averages were pretty impressive. Guess I can't complain about my tiny 5k run today.

Questionable thread integrity here, but I could not find one more appropriate. Feel free to show me a more appropriate forum #1.
