You mean, road cycling isn't considered cross-training when you're a mountain biker?
Snowshoeing, mostly because it's a good workout, we get to tromp around in the snow, you can do it anywhere without having to drop $ on lift tickets.
Disc golf because it's outside, leisurely, when you want to unwind. Plus we have a free course practically next to the house.
Free weights for strength training, just to balance everything out.
Been playing with the idea of running to enter an adventure race, but then I think about the time outlay I would have to do and how that would affect my cycling, so I haven't pulled the trigger, so to speak.
Pain is weakness leaving the body.
How do you eat an elephant?
I will not fail.

I know with the great outdoor weather upon us, doing anything other than biking seems like a crazy idea!
But I'm curious what other physical activities everyone enjoys and why. Skiing in winter because you're all about the downhill? Swimming when it gets too hot & humid to cycle? Rock climbing to get an upper body work out? Kettlebells, archery, spinning, Zumba, whatever it is--I want to hear it!!
