What do you think?

I知 must be slow as I just realized in the past week that above and beyond the normal reasons for enjoying cycling I also enjoy it as it meets my need to constantly be in motion. I always have to be moving whether it is tapping a foot bouncing a leg, rubbing two fingers together. My wife tells me I even shake/tap a leg when I知 sleeping. The constant motion and pedaling soothes the motion beast within and gives me a real peace as I知 pounding along.

So the question is, are there any other hyperactive animals out there who use cycling as a vehicle to soothe the motion need within?

I suspect there are. There was a related thread in April about ADD, some of those posting also mentioned ADHD. I think most folks felt that cycling was helpful for that and a vareity of other things. Seems like the sentiment was that this was a better way, when it works, than using chemicals to help modify.

Other ADD'ers out there?

Do you have the dreaded Restless Leg Syndrome? Thank God our pharmaceutical companies have been hard at work on this one -- there's an ad on TV now.

But seriously, I'm also like you -- tapping my foot, endlessly tossing a pencil (ala Johnnie Carson), etc. And this is when I'm riding! (rimshot). Seriously, I can relate.
