I still find it hard to believe but it's been 25 years for me, a fair portion of it off but mostly on. Mostly.

Been times were I didn't ride much or at all for several months due to injuries, broke bikes, or no interest. It's been about 20 years now.

Just got hurt a couple weeks ago. Broke a couple ribs and hurt my back pretty bad. Winter 16/17(this year) is probably the best riding I've had. I got hurt snowboarding in March, and now this. Both afraid and eager to get back out.

About 15 or 16 years with periods when I didn't ride for months that account for probably a quarter to a third of that time. I ride relatively frequently nowadays, 2 to 4 times a week usually but I keep it pretty simple and mellow. Not looking to get hurt. I love riding though.

Got my first real BMX in 94, so 23 years. Factor in all the breaks I took... Maybe 18. And for most of those years I sucked. So maybe 5 or 6 good years of real riding. Lol

Started at 14, I turn 29 this year. It's made me who I am. All my closest friends either ride or used to

yeah its got to be, but the fact that you never can be sure with an opinionated christian on the internet is worrying

ive been a poser since 07 or 08? Might ride in circles for a few minutes every other month now. I don't even watch videos or anything much these days as I've shifted most of my attention to being a parent and other things like sewing patches on a vest and looking at knife and gun stuff. I'm boring. I might try to ride this weekend.

18 years, though the past 2.5 I've barely ridden due to surgeries, more injuries and work picking up. Hopefully I can get back into it more soon.

20 years this summer minus down time from injuries/surgeries, etc.
Hope to bang a few things out from my "wish list" of tricks/obstacles before winter... we shall see

I think I started when I was like 13 or something. 29 now. I still ride at least once a week. Feels good to still be stoked on something after this many years.

Oh man I cherish riding with my group all day on Saturdays. Had one of those in February the day before I fell riding some cliffs and got fucked up. Trying to plan a trip in November with the friends.

Personally? Man, I think probably 12 years on and off of actual BMX but I think probably 20 years on a bike total.

Since about 2003 off and on. Still love it, still convinced that the best is yet to come. Wish I had space to build trails.
