How will I find time to ride weekends?; come football season(8 posts)

How will I find time to ride weekends?; come football season0_Kewl

I enjoying cycling as a hobby sport, but I'm also a diehard football fan. I watch all the good college games on Saturday and the NFL on Sundays. I'll also watch Thursday night college football if the teams are good.

Most saturday games start round 11 am central time for my area. They go on throught the day till the last night game that usually starts at round 8ish. So that leaves me mainly with a early Saturday mornin ride.

The Sunday NFL schedule is similar, with most games starting at 12 PM central time, and the last game starting at 8 P.M.

Looks like I'll have no time for any late afternoon/early evening rides on the weekends during football season.

For you other cyclist, who are also football fans; what type of ride schedule do you have on the weekends during football season?

P.S. OU Sooners are my college team, and DA Boyz are my NFL team.

I really enjoy riding at night. Modern lights are wonderful.

Otherwise, that's what they make VCR's for.
TIVO? nmDougSloan

I really don't watch too much TV except for baseball and football. Using the Tivo allows me to record and skip commercials with ease. This of course means more riding time.

BTW: Tivo's are fun to hack, too. Not that I do it ;)
Best riding is during the football games. . .js5280

at least here in Denver. Nobody on the streets, shops are empty, lift lines are short, etc. I love football season and could care less about the sport! Okay, I do root and watch the U. Colorado Buffs, but that's about it for me and football.

A friend and I had a "tradition" for a few years of going snowboarding on superbowl sunday, because the slopes were empty. Of course that irritated my wife (then girlfriend) who liked to throw superbowl parties :-)

use the record button on the vcr.

another option is to watch the recap on the sports news. You get to see all the good stuff, without having to sit through all the rest of the crap.

Either way, get off the couch and onto the saddle. Pretty simple with today's technology.

I ride to the stadium. The only downside is, depending on the game, it can be difficult navigating home following the festivities.

Unfortunately, starting next season, I'll have a lot more time to ride on Sundays (damn seating licensing for the new stadium).
