A good relationship always allows for some give and take.
We do things for our significant others when sometimes we’d rather be doing something else.
Likewise, having a nice place to share is important too.
Unfortunately, the work involved to keep a nice place often has a way of interfering with the time we like to spend riding. This can create some tension, unless your spouse happens to be as bike-crazy as you are.
But not just any pumptrack.
We’re talking a manicured, landscaped pumptrack like the one in the backyard of John and Maggie of the San Diego Mountain Bike Association, as featured on the ihatebikes site.
This yard is a thing of beauty. (Although that wall is crying out to be incorporated as a feature in the pump track.)
Here’s another shot:
So maybe you and your spouse can’t agree on the decor in your home…but with a yard like this, at least you’ll have a yard you can both enjoy (…and you’ll never have to be nagged to do yardwork again!).
