Default It's an obsession...

Just taking a poll here. Many times, I ride on my lunch break instead of dedicating an hour to eating. I'm interested in seeing if anyone else does this.

I have a few times, yes. Sometimes I'm just too damn starved- but I have taken several lunchtime rides. Also- flying the cage home to swap out when the weather is bad in the AM, but good to go by lunch. I ride to work everyday weather permitting.

I never take lunchtime rides. Just doesn't seem like enough to scratch the itch for me. Besides, in the summer in Idaho, it doesn't get dark till 9:30. Plenty of time after work.

You can call me Billy. Or Luci. But don't call me Shirley.

I used to do it all the time. Still do it on occasion. Big issue here, in a city, is everyone ELSE is out for lunch at the same time.

Well its a extreme stress reliever. 2nd only to good sex. My wife as an passenger will suggest it's time for a ride. It took me years to get her on a bike. Only last couple years has she dared it. She loves it. It's medicine to the soul. I would give up my TUNDRA and SS before my sled. So yes often I just hit the road for a bit.

I'm in health care, I have to be on-site, so no lunch time rides for me. I only live 2 miles from where I work, its not worth getting the gear and bike out for that ride.

Weather permitting, and workload permitting, yes. Way better when It's pre-planned with more buddies

I do, even though though my lunch is unpaid, I still take an hour to ride if it's nice out

I don't think I've ever gone out for a lunchtime ride. Wasn't practical or doable when I was on Active Duty. My job for the past nine years sine I retired takes me 30+ minutes away by boat from where I park my XCT, so I'm not going out during my 30 minute lunch now. I don't think I would if I could, cause the time available is just too short.

I make the most of the morning and afternoon commute.
