    When you can't ride???

    What do you all do when you can't ride for whatever reason? Either waiting for parts to arrive, or after a crash, or just too busy?
    I have been waiting a week and a half for my derailuer hanger, and before it gets in, I am leaving for a week long vacation. That will be almost 3 weeks without riding!!! And the weather in socal this weekend is perfect. Every time I walk my dog, or go on a hike, i am just wishing I am rippin up the trail with her following me. When I'm at home, thats all I can think about! Its horrible!

    I haven't been able to ride in like a month. It's driving me nuts. I find it's easier if I don't look at the bikes. Out of sight, out of mind.

    Hang out here.

    But seeing all the magnificent ride posts in the passion forum usually just makes it worse.
    Posting on the basis that ignorance shared is ignorance doubled.

    The horror, the horror, no bike to ride aaaaaaaaaag, That is why I have 4 of them. 2 mountain, 1 road, and a cruiser. It would be a really BAD day if they were all down for maintenance.
    Ride the bike.
