Re: whats the farthest you road a BMX bike and why did you do it?

I did 33 and change with my buddy and his son on a local bike path, we ended up riding to a local coffee shop hanging out and then riding back to the car (15 miles one way)

Every month about 25 to 30 of us get together and ride Boston, Ma. and anywhere from 20 to 27 miles

Re: whats the farthest you road a BMX bike and why did you do it?

Recently 20 miles total trip. Give or take a mile. Felt like riding to the barber shop. The 42 17 combo on my freestyler makes long distances easier. I did stop to blaze along the way though. big_smile

Re: whats the farthest you road a BMX bike and why did you do it?

20 miles in each direction at age 12-13 to Newbridge Rd Park in Bellmore NY , one of Long Island NY’s only legit BMX tracks besides the ones we made ourselves. I fractured 3 fingers jumping a curb on the way there and electric taped my fingers together to ride there , race and ride home , then get them fixed .
If I would have been caught leaving the neighborhood at that age I would have been beaten.

Re: whats the farthest you road a BMX bike and why did you do it?

my 19 year old self routinely rode the 36 mile round trip on my Haro Sport to see my girlfriend. She was still a senior in hs, and would pretend to be sick so I could come over and have the place to ourselves.

When I was 16, I got hit by a car while riding about 10 miles from home to see a girl. I was grounded at the time, so I wasn't allowed to leave the neighborhood. While the car that nailed me was clearly at fault, I couldn't be on record being on the other side of town. I gathered my bloody self, said I was ok, and told my parents I busted my ass on the local trails.

In my jr high years I rode to all the neighboring towns at some point. When I drove on these same twisty 2 lane roads as an adult, I couldn't believe that I hadn't been run over.
