Long distance running was for a long time my main hobby as I used to do it competitively. Just recently trying to get back into it after years of smoking and eating crap.

Filmmaking and photography are also two of my main hobbies; the latter I studied but have since been a bit inactive with it, so going to try and get the camera out more (especially when parks are open!) to sharpen up.

Boxing is another, but (as above) the crap lifestyle has been limiting. Think this whole lockdown situation has spurred me into action... either that or I'm having a very premature midlife crisis.

Flying, but can that count anymore since it is also my job?

Travel, Halloween/haunted houses, wine tasting, craft beer tasting, and lately been getting into trying to grow herbs (not the smoking kind) because there is nothing better to do while I am off work 😂 I am trying to get back into running as well but the heat wave the last 4 days has thrown me off a bit.

love Basketball. I play — albeit poorly as a 5’7” relatively unathletic dude — and am a long-suffering Knicks fan-turned clippers fans as a socal resident.

also love movies and tv as I work in that industry too.

Love football (or soccer) to the Americans. Middlesbrough FC for my sins. Also taken up a bit of gardening growing my own veg this year. Been a decent starter year with courgettes, tomatoes, carrots but going to ramp it up next year.

^ That is gorgeous! Absolutely love it.

Greatest "other" hobbies in my life are hiking and outdoor sport. I've always grown up with a lot of national park visits, and my wife (Jess) has really taken to the camping life in turn! Most frequent adventures are taking out our tandem kayak, and traveling far and wide for hiking and camping excursion. Totally own the moment of having this other passion probably be the reason I remain under 300 on my coaster count. :p

I recently spent a little over a week with a friend, who you might recognize, in Utah riding trail motorcycles and had an absolute blast. He owns eight trail and two motocross bikes and half of the trail ones are electric. Although the electric ones are great for riding around the track he created in his backyard, the gas-powered ones were much more suited for riding to the top of the nearby mountain peaks.

Showing me how little there is to riding an electric motorcycle.

First time on his track.

It didn't take long to get used to it.

Scott gave my new drone a try and although he wasn't used to flying it, you can still get a good idea of the backyard track from the footage.

After a couple of days on the track, we headed up the trail to Lewis Peak.

Second stop at "Lunch Rock".

Really like this bike!

A few hours later we arrived at Lewis Peak.

The view is incredible from 8031 feet (2248 m).

We came along the trail that leads off to the right.

Pointing to Willard Peak, where we'll be riding to the next time I return during the summer.

I haven't had so much fun on two wheel since riding motocross with my cousins when I was a teenager, so I was hooked and decided to buy my own trail bike shortly after returning home. After demo rides on a new Beta 350 and a ZERO FX...

...I decided to go with the electric bike. Not only can I ride the backyard track and mountain trails, it can also handle our next destination - Moab!

I immediately took it out on local trails and couldn't be more pleased with the way it handles, the battery life and the unbelievable torque.

There's no feeling like coming up on wildlife without startling them.

So yeah, I guess I've got a new hobby now. 🙂

I have to admit I've always fancied dirt-biking! I mean I do a lot of regular cycling in my spare time, which I guess you could say is one of my hobbies. Doesn't surprise me that Schilke is into dirt-biking at all lol, he seems like one of those types of guys.
