You already know that motocross is an exciting sport to get involved in. As far as outdoor adventure sports are concerned, this one falls at the top of the list. But you can’t stay on the bike forever. Next time take the ride to another sporting event and spend some time off of your bike.
This is the ultimate way for a motocross rider to let off some steam. Simulated war scenarios are set up, you and your friends are given loaded firearms and can either battle each other or another team. Of course the ammo is paint, not bullets, but it is still fun to make that final brightly colored “kill”. Like motocross, make sure you have the right equipment and protect your head and body. If hit up close, globs of paint propelled from an UZI will hurt.
Rock climbing can help you build up some strength and learn a new skill. You can find many set up outside that let you feel like you are climbing the real thing. This is a something you can do by yourself or with a group of friends and a great way to burn off some of that pent up energy you have after a ride. Just make sure that you have the right gear and especially protect your head. It’s a long way down to fall if you aren’t careful.
Toss a recurve bow and arrows on the back of your bike and head out to the archery range. This may seem like a boring sport after the excitement of motocross, but it is actually a great way to calm your nerves. Pulling back your recurve bow and taking perfect aim requires precision and attention that will force you to focus and clear your mind. This can relax you after a motocross event and help to slow down all of that adrenaline – just make sure you’re using the right equipment, which you can research over at www.fastflightarchery.com.
Fishing is not the old man sport that most young guys think it is. Nor is it just luck. Fishing is an acquired skill that takes a ton of patience and even practice to get it right. Just ask anyone who has ever had to flounder with a flounder in the bay to get it up inside of the boat. Plus, if you are successful you just caught dinner. Try out fishing when you need a break from motocross but still want to chill out outside.
There is a lot going on outside besides motocross events. You need to start exploring other things to do in your downtime to help clear your head and relax your body. Riding around on your bike puts a physical strain on your body that you don’t even realize. If you still want to stay outside but need to get off of your bike for awhile, there is a whole world of other sports out there for you to try.
