Taking on other hobbies while the already expensive bikes fester in the garage is too much for my bank balance (and my wife's patience) to handle.  It's been a good winter and spring here in Wellington NZ to leave the bike at home and meet some mates on the trail with saws, shovels, rakes and grubbers to repair what needs it and tune up what's not quite working. It's now well into nut-so spring over growth mode so out come the petrol line trimmers, loppers and brush cutters. My point here is that doing other hobbies is one thing but nothing gets me stoked to session a new section of trail than when I've had a part in its construction or maintenance.  Too few people around here (Wellington that is, not realise just how satisfying doing a couple of hours of trail work a week can be.
