    You know cycling is starting to take over your life when....

    ..... you almost say "On your left" as you are about to pass a slower pedestrian ----- and you are at work, WALKING on a sidewalk to get from one building to another!

    You get up at 5:30 on a Saturday to catch up with what's happening at BF.

    The only money you spent on clothes and shoes in the past year was for bike gear. Ask me how I know this....

    When there's no room for the van in the garage. It's being used to house bikes, bike equipment, camping equipment for the tours, store club jersey inventory and the winter home for park radios.

    You realize that you're not checking out the handsome guy (gal) on the bike. You're checking out his (her) ride!

    This could be a more function of being over fifty rather than a bicycle obsession.

    OK, OK. You know cycling is starting to take over your life when you check out the bike before you check out the cute engine.

    Also, since we've been riding I find myself appreciating how good my husband looks on a bike and how physically competent he is. He in turn likes checking out my tush. So how's this: You know cycling is starting to take over your life when going on a long bike ride with your SO is like foreplay?

    When you tell your wife you've decided to sign up for the MTB race team again even though you swore you'd never do that again and her response is "as if there was ever a chance that you wouldn't".
    The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.

    When you're walking along and look to your left where your rear view mirror is supposed to be to see what's behind you.

    When your wife calls it your second job.

    Don't ask me how I know this.

    When you go out to dinner with friends who don't exercise and you mention that you're going on a 50-mile bike ride tomorrow morning... and they just look at you and don't respond.

    A few of my co-workers have inquired of me, on Mondays, as to if I got any riding in over the weekend. I remember a couple of times when I only had limited time to ride and said something like, "Yeah, but I didn't have much time to get out so I only rode 25 miles on Saturday and 15 on Sunday." So paltry that I wouldn't bother to even write anything about it on BF.

    But they say, "So you *only* got in 40 miles on your bike?" and give me a funny look.

    ....your washing machine gets more use from washing your cycling clothes than your 'work' clothes....and the house looks like a laundry in a formerly far eastern communist country because of all the cycling clothes hung up to dry all the time.
