My preferred activity of that class is backpacking. Although it's not really transportation, it's enjoyable outdoor fun for me. (It's slow paced, I prefer seeing quality of my surroundings to quantity of things I see.) I do it often actually. But I prefer to do only 1 or 2 trips in the winter months, so... how about some DDR!? [Big Grin]

Biking in a large city or traffic in general hones your reflexes, makes you unafraid of risks.
Better yet, get a mountain bike and ride some technical trails if you're looking for thrills and risk factor. That way, you'll have no one but yourself to blame if you somehow manage to split your head wide-open. Riding on busy streets is fun, but I like to be in control and not have to constantly worry about some drunken cager running me down.

Or you can take up climbing.

Riding in traffic isn't anywhere near as thrilling as fleeing a thunderstorm. I will, however, concede that the traffic is more enjoyable.

I would describe myself as an intermediate DDR player, but I can school some fools on Guitar Hero. [Razz]

With that said, I swear to never put "school some fools" in any of my posts ever again.

Ooo I loved DDR! [Big Grin]

Unfortunately it faded rather quickly a few years ago and since my mat broke I was never able to find a replacement.

I should see to get the computer version! (I had to PS version)

I loved DDR, its good fun and the challenege of beating stages and stuff is pretty good fun. Plus you can do it in the comfort of your own home! [crazy]
