Mountain bike or road bike? Street running or trails?

  2. #dailymission ~street running as i mostly run alone and feel safer stciking to the streets.

  3. #dailymission Mountain bike or road bike? Street running or trails? I've just started running trails, and I LoVE it!

      Trail running is my favorite. I don't know anything about which bike to buy. I have one that my son in law gave me. I do not know if it is a trail or road bike. I need to get on it and start riding some. I just can't seem to stop running long enough to ride. :)

      :-) I've been thinking about getting a bike, but DH and I both just spent lots of money on new shoes, and I need to declutter to make room to store a bike too.

    Not a cycler so can't answer the first question.
    I prefer trails to street running, though I do both. Trails are safer, no l... read more

  5. #dailymission: Mountain bike or road bike? Street running or trails? Trails all the way. The more technical the better.

  6. #dailymission Road bike. I love trail running but we don't have many trails around here.

  7. #dailymission Road bike on the Van Fleet Trail. Wish I could do it everyday.

  8. Today's #dailymission Mountain bike or road bike? Street running or trails? I'll answer the second one first ... road. I am not a graceful person and the last thing I need to add in is ... read more

  9. #dailymission "Mountain bike or road bike? Street running or trails?" I prefer street running which is why I am making myself do more trails this year. Time to break out of the comfort zone.

      I also prefer streets. I'm not ready for the trails yet.

      I loved trail riding when I was younger and fearless. Now I like spin class and road bikes.

    Road bike.. But I wish I had a Mtn Bike..

    and Trails preferably..

  12. #dailymission Today running a wooded trail and riding on the road. Tomorrow maybe switch it around. A lot of options in the summer in Alaska.

  13. #dailymission too scared to mountain bike....I love trails, but afraid of snakes in the summer...so streets it will be!

  14. #dailymission Mountain bike or road bike? Street running or trails? Road bike (for *everyone's safety ;-). Trail running...definitely!!

      Trail running, no doubt! But as far as the bike goes, I am an oddball. I have a MTB. But the heavy MTB with 2" knobby tires could not keep up with the speedy squirrels on the Sunday bike rides. So I put a pair of 1.5" road tires on my MTB so that I had a chance to keep up. Now I have the worst of both worlds. I heavy MTB frame with tires too skinny and slick to handle the off road trails! Ha ha ha!

      Road or mountain bike, it sure was a beautiful day for cycling. I took my hybrid out but can't wait for my ElliptoGO to arrive.

  15. #dailymission Road bike, though every now and again I catch myself thinking that mountain biking would be fun. And trails, definitely! Not that much of my running is on trails, given that I live ... read more

      I am too slow for road biking and too much of a chicken for proper mountain biking... I guess I am more the (mountain)bike and hike type...down I would prefer a lift...

      To be honest, I think I'm too chicken for mountain biking too. Also pretty chicken on the road bike - the good thing about being last in tri's is that the scary fast people are already out of your way!

  16. #dailymission Always a road bike. I mountain biked ONE TIME, and flew over the handlebars and really hurt my leg. And I like trail running better than road running, but the road is so much easier t... read more

  17. #dailymission Trails definitely trump streets. No doubt. And as far as running barefoot, most dirt on trails feels far better than chip-seal and getting stopped by the police on streets.

      If you wouldnt run over the speed limit, maybe the cops would not bug you ;)
      I agree though, trails rock!!

  18. #dailymission Epic, my tri bike. Riding on the highway since there are no paved trails for biking. Running; trail running. Love the unpredictability of the terrain. Love adventure. :+)

      I love running the trails around Bathurst when I'm there, esp 'down shore' ;-)
