Tyler has been off his bike for a bit now and have been seeing on his Instagram how stir-crazy he’s been getting to get back on his bike. We also saw him hanging upside-down from a bridge! We had to get ahold of Tyler to see what he’s been up to and how he stays sane (for Tyler) while not riding. J.Cobbs shot the below photos awhile ago of Mike Gray and Tyler playing around on a bridge but since Tyler just recently put up a video of himself hanging upside down, we thought the photos went perfectly on what Tyler does in his downtime.
“So I’ve been off of my bike for about 9 weeks now. I have a couple of bulging discs in my upper back. It’s been one of the toughest injuries to overcome mentally and physically. Definitely a learning experience with keeping myself entertained and happy. Basically, I’ve been spending most of my time on the couch because that’s what the doc recommended and that’s exactly what I hate doing most. Everything I do that keeps me happy involves something very physical (climbing bridges), so I’ve actually spent a lot of time learning about meditation and just being happy and satisfied doing nothing. Its been an interesting couple of months and I am so stoked to be riding again here pretty soon.” – Tyler Fernengel
