Millenials
« on: December 14, 2017, 04:47:02 PM »
Being OLD(almost 30), how do you cope with the sport being over run by millenials?

Do you still have friends who ride? How do you manage riding with millenials? What other activities have you come upon since all your friends started having babies and leaving BMX?

There's fucking kooks my age and there are some decent dudes 15 years younger. If you're asking how to deal with the weirdos you can't identify with, that's a person problem not an activity related issue. Venture out to new skateparks, ask dudes if they want to be Instagram friends as you gently put your hand on their bike.

The other activities I engross myself in are studying, growing plants, and I've grown very accustomed to watching tv and using the internet.

My question is do you ride with the younger crews. Im thinking everyone who rides just wants to ride the same stuff over and over again while i like to venture new places but it seems that nobody keeps this mindset anymore. Just people who are close to my age. Even the old farts want to ride the same stuff over and over again.

There is a crew of younger dudes that ride where I live that I think are horrible, so when I see them I just wave and say hi and be polite and try to not get lost in the vape clouds that follow them while they are intsagramming the sweet flyouts they do. They kind of soured me on the younger riders coming up until me and my two friends that are older were riding this ledge spot a couple weeks and a kid we had never seen or met rolls up gives us a nod and just shreds with us. It gave me hope that out there in this world is still a new crop of younger guys that just want to ride bmx and have fun.

You are a millennial.
I know im classified as a Millenial but i think millenials is more aimed towards people born after year 2000. Being 26 years old I am not as tech crazed as them and I am no longer owner of my time. Maybe older people than me think of me as a millenial.

Same here, I moved near a skatepark and they even de-motivate me from going there anymore. I live by a lot of new street spots i would like to go hit but nobody is really into that. I guess im just going through some changes. i need to get me a topload stem.

"No longer owner of my time."

I love riding with younger dudes. Some of them just blow my mind with what they've learned in such a short amount of time. I can (could) hold my own riding with them but there's much I can not hope to land they do.

Get drunk while you ride and you'll forget that everyone is at least 10 years younger than you.. Just like at the bar.

Yeah, then I will be the drunk old dude. Too many years of that already. Just sold my freecoaster and bought a motorcycle.

ALthough i dont judge, drinking while riding seems to be the most fun, atleast for me. Then again it all seems stale unless im learning some new tricks or at some new spot.

I ride with a very small crew and go to skateparks and ride with whoever wanna ride. In my area most young kids are quite cool to be around but the 18-25 year olds (which is most riders here) tend to be a bit annoying. Only ride street and act all gangster all the time.

I got injured a year ago, bought a flat and now just got an expat contract and moved abroad, so I have barely been riding for a year. Nowadays it seems like I only go on organised trips with my crew twice a year. Might bring my bike here during springtime to find new friends.
