    When you get all giddy because a charming, handsome, guy on the trail, compliments your lugs.

    Oh! And, another one...you know your husband really loves you when he gives you a new bike rack for your car on Valentine's Day. (BTW, my husband is even more handsome & charming than the guy on the trial!)

    One of your presets on your radio is the weather bureau.

    You notice a pair of shoes under the desk belonging to a professor interviewing you and ask him (at the end) if he rides.

    You get into a conversation about bikes with different professor (who is also supposed to be interviewing you...)
    At least I don't leave slime trails.

    . . . if the only thing you miss about a vile job that you quit is the hills on the commute there (and the paycheck, of course).

    Owlie - that's a Good Sign. You connected! Three cheers for having something in common with the person who is interviewing you.

    When all that's lying around your house are bicycling mags, water bottles, cycling clothes hanging out to dry and Versus shows T-Vo'd.

    When your birthday cards have bicycles on them with gift cards to the local bike shop IN them.

    When you stare at oncoming pelotons with reckless abandon.

    That giddy feeling when you get a nod from a super cyclist on the trail.

    you're walking at snail's pace with your toddler, but wearing a very nice Gore padded cycling jacket, and get completely checked out by a very attractive man on a bike.

    You justify getting an IPhone because it has a cool cycle app.

    Cycling Greeting Cards

    When your birthday cards have bicycles on them with gift cards to the local bike shop IN them.


    My DH is amazed that I have nearly always found birthday/valentines/anniversary cards with bicycles and/or bicyclists on them! I am always on the lookout for them and it gives me such a thrill when I find one for him.

    I resemble that statement. In fact that is exactly what I do each time I get my oil changed. My favorite was when it was a 18.5 mile ride to the dealer. I would have kept doing it, but the Saturn dealer shut down. :-(

    When you just bought a great steel touring bike and only two weeks later decide the aluminum road bike you used to love riding is just not good enough - and now you are trying to justify buying an all carbon road bike.

    You might be a cyclist if you hand signal when walking. I caught myself about to do this yesterday.
