    Health benefits, an escape from stress and everything else in the real world, the challenge, the thrill, the pain.

    Fitness...but mostly because I love bikes. Any and all bikes, but I think the mountain bike is the pinacle of the melding of technology and human power. There's just so much cool stuff going on with mountain bikes.

    While in rehab for alcohol and meth addiction - I considered many possibilities for leading a healthier lifestyle:

    GOLF: Too slow, too boring and expensive. Who wants to spend 40% of their time waiting their turn, requiring a near-perfect swing to even succeed at?
    TENNIS: Been there done that, in High School. Great, for hooking-up with all the Tennis Bunnies(chicks). Finding decent tennis courts becomes a pain...unless you have an expensive club membership.
    RUNNING: What? Kill my aging knees and jostle my already-strectched organs, only to fall under the monotonous trance of road-induced hypnosis?
    GYM: The combined scent of everybody's BO is more than enough to make me hurl. I realized long ago that I no longer need weighty "guns" to attract the opposite sex. Lean abs from cardio is 3x as sexy to them now. MTB works your core like no other.
    MOTORCYCLE: Spend $$$ money/gas on a Harley and get fatter? I choose to run on fat and save $$$ on gas instead.
    MTB: For me - it's ALL about the bike; the technology, the parts choices, etc. I obsess about bike weight, fit, and riding techniques. I love searching for trails I have never ridden before and write detailed reviews on them, so YOU enjoy them too. I make an annual effort to test-ride every MTB ever made and review them here on MTBR, so you can make the most informed buying decision. Also, I love the endorphin rush while climbing up a 22% grade and the accompanying adrenaline, while I bomb the downhills. I love the fact drugs are no longer needed, because MTB gives me all the "high" I want...and then some, for FREE. I finally selected cycling as my "sport." It took a sober and clean person to come to that realization - but I'm sticking with my choice and will continue riding until I drop...

    As seen on another site - substitute riding for running in this and it sums it up pretty well The terrible and wonderful reasons why I run long distances - The Oatmeal
    I may or may not be laughing at you.
