Is riding a winter or summer sport ?

Well ? what do you think ?

I cant help but notice the amount of people that class riding as a winter sport... I always thought of it more as a springtime/autumn thing. Mud is fun.... but I miss being able to pick up the speed and feel the g-forces on the tight track when you have great traction and can really pump it up a few notches.

Dust does suck in the summertime.... but is that the problem ? or do people rather socialise with odd evening barby and 6 dozen beers in summer and end up to trashed to go riding ?

What are your thoughts ?

I think riding has long been associated with winter, however more people probably ride in the warmer months.....but i'll ride rain hail or shine.....basically whenever i can!

I'm actually going on my first ride this weekend, (belanglo)so can't say I have a preference at this time but as I hope to get right back into riding given my work and family life I'll go whenever I can.

And Yes she is guilty.

My summer riding consists mostly of tight single track around Yarragon where dust isn't a problem.
