    You've got more ice packs in your freezer than ice trays.




    I just emptied DH's cooler after an 80-mile ride today, and he had most of our ice packs with him, including the therapeutic ones we use for icing knees and such after long rides. We have three trays for ice cubes and 14 - yes, 14 - ice packs for the cooler we leave in the car for water bottle refills and therapeutic use.

    Add yours!

    You might be a (commuter) cyclist if...

    you spend the workday dreaming about the commute home, and the evenings dreaming about the commute to work.

    ...you know how to get places on a bike and you can't get back there in the car.

    I realized this one the other day when out on the W&OD trail.

    Yea, when the forecast has you asking "what shall I wear?"

    When you speed up when you see a radar gun

    ... if you see a guy wearing one of those T-shirts that says "chicks dig scars," and you show him your scars.

    You hold up a glossy photo/ad in a bike magazine of a shiny, gorgeous dream machine and say: "Sexy." Those who observe this just shake their heads at you.

    You are happy when traffic is especially bad, you cackle with glee when you ride over the interstate when it looks like a parking lot

    You pat your bike whenever you pass it, and wish you were going riding instead of (fill in the blank). You look at all the motorcycles at the Sturgis rally and think of how big and loud they are, and how they couldn't possibly admire the wildflowers and little fauna going by that fast.

    First thing you ask your new boss is where can I store my bike at work?

    And when you see a guy getting out of his car to yell at the driver behind him because their car is blocking his parking space. I bike pass them, stop at the traffic light and say to the other cyclist, "and that's why I don't drive"

    What you really need are a couple of pairs of nice slacks and dressy jeans, but instead you spend $400 on TE because they're offering you one pair of socks for free.

    You'd rather die than spend $80-90 on a pair of jeans, but don't blink if it's really a great fitting pair of bike shorts with the perfect amount of padding.
