    Quite a lot of cycling books suggest that cyclists are at a high risk of developing mental health issues - which I’m sure you know from having read plenty. The thesis is that the professional sport of road racing tends to attract loners and obsessives.

    Haha

    Not laughing at the mental health issues but though I have a good circle of friends I enjoy my own company a lot. Also a committed cyclist and have had my fair share of mental health problems.

    Does anyone have a indoor spin bike ? I could be in the market for one but obviously they're gonna be pricy so looking for some advice from anyone who has or has looked into.

    I have a road bike that I’ve cleaned up for use indoors and I have it on a on a Kinetic smart turbo trainer hooked up to Zwift. It’s a bit more fun than a dumb spin bike and cheaper than a smart one

    WTF is that vegan pussyhole's problem?

    If I tried to row to New York, I don't get to complain that it would have been easier to fly.

    Some ridiculously cheap bikes on Ebay. Guess all those pussies who brought bikes in April and May cant ride in the cold.

    People need to man up.

    Road bikes maybe, second hand mountain bike prices have gone through the roof, as you can't buy a new one.
    Maybe all the tarmac eaters have seen the light? ;)

    Mountain bikes are as much bikes as speed boats are boats.

    I use my MTB this time of year primarily because I don’t mind it being a bit muddy, if my road bike gets dirty it gets cleaned straight away, hence I only take it out in the dry.

    Also, it’s better for family rides, the bairns aren’t road ready yet and we have plenty of tracks nearby.
