Swimming is a distant but still closer than anything else next best.
Cross-country skiing also ranks highly I think.
I cross country ski raced for 12 years and it is right up there with cycling.
If you have done the training for either and on a good day with well prepped skis (well prepped bike) and good snow ( good road surface) they are both pretty close to heaven.
I'd love to cross country ski. I imagine it would be brilliant and peaceful.
I might even give it a go this winter.
Duds - do you recommend any places to learn?
