I have 5 different bikes for this very thing. To change things up I'm participating in a 6 week Short Track XC series. I haven't ridden off road in years, but wanted to do some this year and needed a bit of a change in pace and it's perfect.
I'd forgotten how much fun MTB'ing was and really enjoyed the race. Just for fun I did it on my new Cyclocross bike...which I'll be using for my first year racing cyclocross this year.
Basically a change of pace and something different and still was able to get in an increadible workout....and 2nd place in sport senior class (2 wipe outs and some rusty skills kept me from getting first :mad2: ).
Some people have single speeds or fixies...or race at a velodrome if they have one near by.
If all else fails take a week off the bike and relax...may be just what you need :idea:
