Added reply in a thread Anyone structure their practice? 1/23/2020 7:58 AM

I totally do. Years of being a drummer have fashioned me into a routine/repetition machine. I think it also feeds and is driven by my OCD as well...I am more calm if I can scratch that itch. I will always start a session by doing "laps" around the park/area ... more »

sort of agree, except when that granite ledge is someone else's work of art...whether that is a building, sculpture etc... there is a difference in riding structures that are industrial, and inherently meant to endure wear and tear, and then artifacts ... more »

yep....repetition pains! I love those. I am still trying to master 180's, and just getting decent air out of pipes in general...recovering from a pretty big leg injury from playing hockey though, and it still worries me to land big stuff...I am afraid ... more »

true...a 22 would seem to feel "bulky" to do tricks...like street or park. best thing to do is test ride some bikes if you can...I know that is easier said than done in some locales...

Added reply in a thread Advice please! 5/17/2019 1:47 PM

my question would be where would you race? I have never heard of adult age categories...but also am from Ohio, which is not a BMX mecca for sure....a lot of us older guys got backin via street or park riding, but not racing (that I know of)
