Cycling and Golf

Any multi-sport athletes than can offer some advice? My principal (competitive) sport is golf, for which I practice and train like crazy. I love going for rides though as well. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to balance all of this in a short (Canadian) summer, without getting burnt out? Thanks!

Cycle to the golf course? Cycle to get groceries and general shopping?

Get a bike trailer so you can use the trailer and the bike to commute to the golf course with all your golfing equipment.

This model pictured is a different frame than the original ones I've seen. Which also came in an electric version.

I'm not sure these are even still being sold as I couldn't seem to add one to the cart. But I'm sure similar could be found or built.

Golfing may be a seasonal activity but cycling is an all year round activity even with short Canadian summers. Just because the summer ends doesn't mean that you can't ride. There are a lot of people including myself who ride all winter long. The best way not too burn out when doing multiple activities is to pace yourself and take regular rest days.

Sorry, I should have clarified.... the golf course is a 5 minute walk from my place, so not much point in cycling to it! Thanks for your responses!

Then use your bike for errands, grocery getting, and such things. That way you can both cycle and do your golf without having to do two "sports" and set time aside for it.
