    When you can sit for hours watching cycling (Tour de France)...even the flat stages, but think those that watch golf on TV have to be crazy! (even baseball on TV puts me to sleep!)

    I used to watch golf to fall asleep. But still - I think TdF ranks higher. At least they aren't just walking around with the announcer talking in meditation-style tones. Golf doesn't have Bob Roll.

    ...you "accidently" go for a bike ride. As in "I'm just going to go over to that garage sale up the street" (because there was a bike leaning against the tree!) and you phone 5 miles from home to make sure it is OK if you go for a longer ride because the weather is perfect!

    you bless the headwinds because on cold days they act as resistance training and on stinky hot days they actually help keep the temps almost tolerable.

    You pat you bike on its *** every time you walk by it in the hall.

    Dude, plagiarism is never okay. You've copied aeiea's post from the first page verbatim. Not cool. Or are you just trying to sell your weight loss pills? Spam isn't okay, either.

    Good eye!

    Good catch! I had already reported one of his other posts as spam yesterday.

    You might be a cyclist if you find yourself stroking the handlebars of your bike the evening before a ride apologizing for the bad weather that has kept you from riding for a long time.

    ...you see nothing wrong with the fact that your living room is taken up with 2 bikes on trainers...and the dining room primarily provides a home for the tandem.

    you feel an adrenalin rush and inexplicable happiness by just touching your bike's top tube.
    So long as the wheels are still turning, life is good.

    You pick up inner tubes at the side of the trail and see if they are fixable. I found three on Sat in different locations. One was wrecked (snakebite) so I will make a frame protector from it, one might be fixable and one was intact - think it was from a stolen bike as it was where the locals often dump them...

    You can't wait for the time to change so you can ride to work in daylight.

    You are surprised when your non-cycling friends don't care if the gauge on your Road Morph works or not...

    And you're still trying to find someplace to get any of your road bike tire gauges calibrated.
