The Winter Months

Post by Marco »

Just wondered what we're all gonna do during the winter months when F1 isn't on? I'm going to take up mountain biking and get Schumacher fitness, it's amazing how young he looks for a 37 year old. :)

First, I'll switch to watching Football until the Superbowl. Then I'll be completely bummed until the start of the 07 season during which time I might be able to regroup my driver allegiancies. It'll be so strange not to see MS in his car anymore, so strange...

I have a road bike that I enjoy riding both in summer and winter. Recently i've been running a bit in the evenings, but somehow i feel cycling is a more satisfying workout.

What's a good mountain bike to start on? I tempted to attack the hills near me too.

I've got a bike by Specialized, hardly used it, but sorely tempted to get it out the shed and have a go this winter.
