    When you wear your cycling socks just to remind you what you'ld rather be doing than working, sigh.

    There are bike tracks through your kitchen, dining room, living room and hallway, since your bike "sleeps" in your bedroom. And you really don't care.
    (Or is it just me with my negligible housekeeping skills? )

    Meemsie--I'm cringing over here and trying not to think about that...
    At least I don't leave slime trails.

    When you find yourself carrying cell phone, cards and cash in a ziplock bag from that morning's ride.

    When you think about spending 90 bucks on yet another pair of cycling shoes but won't spend 40 on a pair of heels despite having no more wearable heels left.

    When you have to stop cycling for a couple of weeks and realize that without cycling, you suddenly have so many hours of emptiness to fill and don't know what to do with them...

    When you have tan lines at mid-thigh, your hands are lighter than your arms and you have raccoon eyes.

    And if your bald like my husband...you have stripes on the top of your head.

    ... if you're more likely to run into friends at the bike shop than at the pub.

    When touching the bike you have parked in your bedroom makes your heart-rate increase, your adrenalin spike, and causes a serious desire to go for a ride at 2 in the morning.

    When, even though suffering the chemo ickies, you drag yourself to the backyard to fix a flat tire so your bike won't have to suffer.

    When you are tired, the knees are tender, and you KNOW you need to take the day off tomorrow and do something other than riding because you have ridden the last 4 days in a row...then you look at those two bikes that hang out in the living room and want to go out anyway...

    HA! That's me. You just talked me into going riding instead of lifting at the gym. My brain thanks you & my legs curse you!

    When you choose to cycle on a fairly hot humid day, because as a land-based exercise, at least it's abit cooler: you generate abit of wind cycling along or descending a hill.
