    I’m assuming that for most of you biking is your life (it is for the guys I ride with) but do you any of you struggle to balance biking with other hobbies?

    With a young family I cant spend money as freely as I used to and I want to spend more time at home with the little one.

    I’ve given up guitar and gigging full stop, given up my season ticket at the football, and sold my project car.

    I’m still left with wanting to go to as many football games as possible, I can’t miss a game on tv and I’m addicted to getting tattooed, just booked another sitting and I’m having two consecutive 9 hour days to help promote my mates new studio.

    What does biking have to compete with for you?

    When Im not on my bike (which isnt very often atm) I go walking with the Mrs and friends. Ski every March (taking the granddaughter this coming March) following the once mighty (soon to be again) Tottenham, get to some northern games. Currently having to study for my Leadership in Management Degree so that taking up a lot of time. Trying to get my grandaughter into cycling once I fix her bike, but she is to busy playing football

    Gunner you is the cooliest.

    Me, apart from my full time job; I run a mobile Disco called The PM express road show; it takes me all over the country from Sunderland to Swindon. I go on big walks under big skies, surf and sea fish and do 75% of the cooking in our house. i also do 100% of the DIY in our house my biggest project was a large kitchen and dining room extension built with my own fair hands (all except the plastering)
