    Riding and bad moods?


    I'm curious about something. Do you get on your bike and go for a ride when you are in a real bad mood, hangry, sad, etc. you know...when you feel that the pressure is building up inside. Do you refrain from hopping on your bike, being afraid your attention might be taken away from the road because your mind is elsewhere, or, au contrary, it makes you "forget" all about it when your riding and you feel better and refresh after a short ride?

    edit: this is not to talk about personnals problems. I'd just like to know if people use their bikes as a stress relief, or if in many's opinions, it's a bad thing to do (from experience maybe?)...

    I always try to ride when I'm pissed. It calms me down, because I have to focus.

    Also, I think I taught myself to wheelie and do power slides while pissed

    It is hard for me to get mad. I just think to myself life could be worse and I could live in springfield.

    Riding and bad moods?

    I try to get the mood under control before I hop on the bike. I have found out the hard way about things that require concentration (mogul skiing) and tempers. Taking a walk around the parking lot with a few deep breaths can go a long way.
