Trying to get into shape for this year's off-road dirt bike riding. Last year I was humiliated by my older bro and his friends. They do a lot more riding than I do, but SHEESH! I should still be able to keep up with them on a tight woods 70 mile ride! My ass was kicked on the last ride, needless to say. One of the riders makes the maps for the state of Idaho where we do most of our riding. He knows exactly where he's going at all times. This old dude is ten years older than me, but rides like a 20 year old! It's really amazing! This year will be different, though! I'm currently working on stamina, upper body strength and leg strength.
There's an old saying that goes; "Motocross, worlds toughest sport". I believe this is close to the truth. Although I don't motocross, I do enduro riding. On these rides, one must pack lots of liquid, food, tools, and extra petrol if you can. It's tough work on these rides, but you get to explore vast amounts of remote forest areas you wouldn't normally be exposed to.
This year, I want to be able to keep up with the big dogs. Anyone else do off-road riding?
