It depends on whom I will be having sex with and what I will be riding.

For some reason this reminds me of a local joke:

"Honey, it's basketball, basketball, basketball. I swear you love basketball more than me."

"Yes, but I love you more than football."

Sorry, neither. Don't see a situation, in my case, where I would have to give up either. Although, temporarily, until my hand fully heals, I've had to give up cycling.

Hey guys, there is no option 3 - neither.

If you have to give one up, which one will it be? Don't cop out.

Don't worry, there are no binding contracts being made by making a choice.

I'm amazed that no one has mentioned the gentleman arrested for sex with a bicycle.

Depends. Can you trade either ride in for something newer, lighter and faster?

Speak for yourself. The bikes would be sent to my boys, on Craigslist, or out on the curb for the first taker.

I can still swim and jog a bit, as well as lift weights.

I'd give up cycling to get laid. (Though I'm sure I'd regret it the next morning).

Just make sure you clean and lube the chain before hand. It can get kind of rough and dirty.

The count so far is:

will give up sex - 4
will give up cycling - 5

Kinda hard to count. Lots of comments where the answer is ambiguous. Lots of cop outs.

Please answer one or the other.

You grouped the few of us that had sex TAKEN FROM US due to medical reasons beyond our control.

On a serious note, it's almost impossible to answer a question when a false dichotomy is proposed.
The original question proposed ("If you were asked to give up cycling or sex, which way would you go?") does not preclude other answers. Hence, my original response stands - I would go in the opposite direction of the person asking the question.

Saying "neither" is a cop out is a bit silly. Just as it's silly to say you have to give up one or the other. But, if you want an absolute answer, I would give up cycling. I can walk, swim, lift weights. Sex is more than penetration--involves touching, caressing, kissing, caring. Sex is part of intimacy and if you told me I had to give up intimacy with my wife/partner, that's definitely a no brainer, the answer is a resounding "No, I will not give up intimacy with my wife. We will have been married 29 years this June and she is far more important than a bicycle.

Most options in life contain far more than 2 choices.

^^ This!

I didn't have much of a choice. Radiation or watch the cancer grow until it killed me.

For many, this means both cycling and sex had to be given up.

Were do you all think up these topics**********

Well, I am just as bad for replying!!

At 72 years old bicycles have become an addiction and I am enjoying them to the max. However, when the choice comes to sex or my bicycles, my younger wife won't let me give up sex.. No kidding!!

When I come in from work on the bicycle, I get GRABBED, mugged, and the wife rapes me, repeatingly too. I must say, I offer faint resistance. Mainly because after she finishing using me in the bedroom, she drags me downstairs and feeds me a dynamite meal.

I just mentioned this topic to her, and she came up with the idea of putting a bicycle in the bedroom!!! Oh Gawd, what is going to happened to me now!!!!!!

My wife...
