    you just bought a new house, and the hottest topic of discussion is
    which room gets to be the new workshop?

    You might be a cyclist, (and/or runner), if you breathe a sigh of relief every time your expensive wool/bamboo socks come out even when folding the laundry.

    I am the only cyclist in the house and that disucssion is in progress now! "No bikes in the garage. You can have a shop in the basement"... "I hate carrying my bike up and down the stairs". I am now thinking of building a one car garage just for my bike shop!

    ...You're on Maui with your whole wonderful family, driving to the boat that will take you snorkeling, swimming with sea turtles, etc., and you are gazing out the window at the guy riding his bike down the highway and thinking about how much you miss your bike.

    Love this thread.

    You find yourself "shifting" the steering wheel of your car.

    Any time you drive up a mountain, you wonder if you have the legs to bike it.

    You brag about the time you broke your helmet.

    You try to tuck while you're driving down a hill.

    You get annoyed by a TV program that talks about someone taking up mountain biking after having a lung transplant...because it shows a photo of them standing next to what is CLEARLY a Trek road bike. (Also that you looked at the manufacturer of said bike.)
    At least I don't leave slime trails.

    . . . you are in the market for a new house and insist on a two stall garage - one stall for the car, and the other for the bikes.
    Give big space to the festive dog that make sport in the roadway. Avoid entanglement with your wheel spoke.

    You Might Be a Cyclist If...

    You start to take a short cut while driving home, and realize you can't go that way in your car.

    Likewise, you think about driving the long way around because there is a big hill down the street...and then remember you are driving not biking. LOL.

    The only reason you go to garage sales is to see if there is any bike gear or clothing. Every once in a while you might get lucky.

    I've done that after a ride on the drive home to other cars, before I think, Oh Yeah, I have blinkers.
