Street Vs Track

I commute on my bike rain or shine, and ride track just about every chance I get. I just finished my first year of track riding, and did about 15 of them. I don't have the urge to just go riding since I started track riding, but rarely did before that. I never drive my car, and my wife ended up selling hers, and she just drives mine now.

So how many of you ride on the trtack only? Seems a lot of guys give up the street once the start riding on the track. I like both, how about you?

I do both. My commute is fairly straight and easy, a bit boring, but I still like it. I also go down to the Smokies with some friends and it's a tremendous amount of fun riding those roads- it's a different kind of challenge compared to the track. I think each type of riding can help the other.

It's the track for me now days.

 

I've had a few big offs at the track, and if that had of happened on the street, I wouldn't be typing this.

 

Plus there are too many idiots like me driving cars on the street around here ;)

 

Cheers

I do both but mostly road riding (about 10000 miles a year) thats only riding for fun, I dont commute on my bike, as far as track riding goes I dont get on the track as much as I'd like but am planning on changing that in 2009, I aim to do levels 2 and 3 at the CSS and do a load of trackdays too!

Street riding has been almost zero for the last few years---mostly due to chauffering little ones. Haven't even done much dirt riding lately, and that basically sucks, as I'd wanted to get a bit better there.
