How far do you drive for everyday rides?

14 posts in this topic

Hey all. I was curious, how far do most of you commute for normal every day rides?

Most of my local riding is either mediocre or requires constantly moving ahead of security. So far my search for a decent local practice spot has been unsuccessful. But there is some amazing riding a few hours away... For those rare occasions I can get away.

What about you guys?

5 minutes from my front door. Got a load of great spots round town to hurt myself at. 2 minutes from my house is the beach /breakwater area and it is littered with large rocks that one day I fully intend to throw myself and my bike at. Suppose I'm quite lucky really as I dont need to travel to find a good spot

I used to ride about 35mins to get into town to ride, but we've moved further away so now it's a 45min drive each way.

I’m lucky enough to have plenty of street stuff to ride just outside my house. Also got a quarry within 15 mins ride that’s got a lot of good rocks as well.

Live near town seafront so loads of stuff within a two minute ride, plus I'm only starting out so don't need much. Will be sad to see Winter and dark evenings pass as it meant less people around to see a 40 something guy being a bit rubbish at riding a trials bike. Won't miss the howling wind though.

28009888 and counting

 

USA numbers... my closest competition is a 23 hour drive. same if I want to ride with more than one person.

 

 Street riding I have on a 10 min train ride, real rocks are a 45 min car ride.

 

Back in the day it was normal to drive 3 hours to go ride w someone.
