Default How often do you guys wheel?

I only wheel a few times a year . I didn't have a trailer that my truck fit on till this year . This year I have no excuses ,but I still don't wheel as much as I would like. Most places are 2hrs away from me or more. My question is how often do you wheel at a park?

In years past 15 - 19 times per year. Closer to 6 - 8 the last couple of years.

I used to wheel 3-5 times a summer...no winter wheeling.

Now the closest thing to wheeling I get to do is a nice dirt alley in the hood.

Last year was a building year, so I rode bitch a lot.

This year I've been out 3x and hope to make it 6 or 7 more.

Before kids I was usually out 10-12 times a year. It dipped a bit, but has generally been coming back up.

I'm lucky if I make it to silver lake twice. Other than Fucking around at a buddies, that's about it.

I get on the bike more though lately.

I wheel about as often as a cicada cycle. Too much work, not enough fun.

So far this year it's been a week in Johnson Valley, CA during KOH, Badlands, and St Helen. There should be 5 more races at the Badlands, plus I'd like to hit turkey day at the mounds, R&v, and maybe another race.

2-3 times a year maybe. Pretty sad. I wasn't this busy as a kid, when you could go out any day you wanted.

Damn you life!

A lot in high school. After college I had a junk blazer and wheeled it a handful of times. Last year I didn't at all. This year I have been to bundy r&v and south branch. We are going to Drummond in September. Hopefully a few in between.
