    (________) stopped me from riding today

    Simple thread idea. Start it with what stopped you, then an explanation.
    I'll go first.


    2 broken sprinklers

    I usually have about 3 hours to get out and ride on Saturdays while the boy is down for his nap. Put him down and before I left I turned on the sprinklers for the first time this year. Big mistake. Did I really think nothing would have broken or frozen all winter? I knew if I didn't fix it then it would be too dark later and I wouldn't be able to fix them til next Saturday. So no ride for me yesterday.

    I'm riding today,sunny and in the mid twenties.

    A couple of broken sprinklers kept you from riding?
    I would have rode then pick up a couple of cheap plastic spriklers at any HW store.

    An ankle broken in 3 places with displacement has kept me from riding since November....It sucks, but I could be ready to ride soon (hopefully)
    Look down at me and you'll see a fool. Look up at me and you'll see your god. Look straight at me and you'll see yourself.

    Muddy, flooded MTB trails.

    That stuff takes forever to dry up and many of the locals keep riding them destroying them further. They refuse to "ride through"

    When you're a new home owner, new to changing sprinklers and have limited daylight. Yes it stopped me from riding. Buying the sprinklers isn't the time consuming part. Digging up the old stuff, keeping dirt out of the lines etc...all without knowledge of how to do it. Thank you google and YouTube. Next time it will be a quick job since I know what I'm doing now.

    I hate hitting the trails after the rain has dried up just to see the damage left behind.

    shoveling 30" of snow out from a house that I'm under contract in because the real estate agent didn't do it. He said it was good to go for the inspection, propane truck drives an hour up in the mountains with the new tank(that we put the cash up for) no place to put it because nothing has been cleared. 2 days of moving three different storm's worth of snow.

    But it will be worth it when I have my very own trails.

    4 weeks ago it was the unexpected discovery of a fatal crack in my frame as I was heading out the door for a ride. It's one of those reasons that resembles a train wreck. I'm happy to report that nothing stopped me from taking my new ride out yesterday.

    Figured it wouldn't take long for the high and mighty ones to show up.

    The point of the thread is that yes we are all riders. But sometimes things come up to stop us. A light snow wouldn't stop me either, good for you. But taking care of my responsibilities as husband and father stopped me from riding. Does that mean I'm not a rider? Sure doesn't.

    Sometimes it's just nice to vent to people who understand the misery.

    12 hours in cattle class. When I got home my better half had decided that, as she had looked after our daughter all week, she had the right to go skiing. Good girl I'd do the same...

    Went for a short hike, paid the bills, fixed a lamp and ordered a Strider with a cool helmet to match .

    If he weighs only 105 pounds, and his bike weighs 16 pounds, then it’s totally understandable. However, I think that even Strava would have better estimated the calorie count, as it takes into consideration the vertical footies, rider weight, rider age, heartrate, bike weight, cadence, and distance.

    Word! Well...MTBR is a discussion forum, not a complaint forum. Complaint is the spin you put on it. The OP wanted to discuss what kept himself, and others from riding on a particular day. "A simple thread...," the OP said.

    If I were you I would start a thread "Nothing keeps me from riding....EVER...." and then you can post on it and we will all continue to be blessed by your internet radness, because what you say about yourself on the internet has to be true...right?

    3oz of blow and a pair of tranny hookers.

    Actually, a bike that's in pieces, lots of homework, and prior obligations. I did manage a few miles on the commuter though.

    I would have been, but my bike is littered all over the floor. I should have received a new frame this Saturday, but because some unlucky dude got hit by a train, the man who should have delivered my frame couldn't get on the train because it was canceled.

    Never the less: It's driving me insane not to be able to ride! Actually not so much not riding, but not being able to..
    Why are my shins so scarred..?

    Cold/windy weather stopped me from riding the new bike outside. Stuck to the indoor trainer, but had to stop because I bonked. Out until at least tomorrow

    How about "more important things...."

    Its usually either that or weather causing muddy/snow covered trails that I have been implored not to damage by riding when wet.

    Bronchitis; Haven't ridden in about a month because of it (the temp outside wouldn't help). I was all kinds of gunked up but should be good to go this weekend. THANK YOU MEDSSSS

    I did the same ride again today and got 3,197 calories. I forgot that the HR monitor strap broke less than half way through the ride above. So that probably explains the low reading.

    Sloth.

    Trails close by are icy/muddy/snow covered, trails that are just snow covered (able to be ridden) are a long drive. Snowbird is a 15 min drive so that usually wins.

    Winter.

    It's winter, the ice rinks are free & open. As a Canadian, it's my patriotic duty to play hockey until the ice melts. Speaking seriously, I've been playing hockey a lot longer than I've been biking, it's a sport I love and as long as it's cold enough to keep the rinks frozen I'm going to be out there playing hockey instead of riding.

    Unlimited strike out at college just got voted today. All over the province, students are now in strike. So I won't be commuting for at least a week, but I hope the weather will get better to enjoy my MTB meanwhile

    Similar thing here. Dislocated ankle, torn ligaments/tendons and a broken fibula as a result of going down on my left akle/leg without being able to unclip. Mine happened last month. Two scews come out of my ankle in 6 weeks.

    A terrible head cold didn't stop me from riding on Sunday. It should have. Now Monday was a total loss and today isn't shaping up to be any better.

    Dental surgery. I rode early this morning and I wanted to do a doubleheader this afternoon, but the doctor said I can't or I would chew my face off.

    Tomorrow is another day!

    Last Wednesday, a week ago today, it was haggling with the dealership for a new VW passat SE TDI, Thursday, it was driving down to buy the damn thing and sitting in the dealership signing my life away on financing a portion of it.

    Friday was driving it 350 miles north to my nieces wedding.
    Saturday was being at the wedding.
    Sunday was driving 350 miles home.
    Monday was a nooner.
    Tuesday was getting crap in line for the Finance department for VW, faxing paperwork and documents, etc,

    Today, I rode, and it felt glorious!

    dont ever wish this disease on your worst enemy. My Mother in-law also suffers it and says its far worse than natural child birth (very rare in women). The weight of bedsheets is enough to make you wake up screaming (even worse when the wife pulls the covers tight). the thought of putting on shoes is unbearable. I had her put my bike in the back room so it wouldn't see me cry.

    One night's worth of sleep in the last three......

    Took a power nap (all morning), left me less time to do laundry and clean up/rearrange my boy's room.

    Now I'm sitting here, looking at 35F outside (dark, 10PM), sipping instant capp & fiending for O'Donnell's.

    Having a job

    Man if I didn't have a job I sure could ride a lot more...of course I couldn't afford a bike so that could be a problem.
