    Do you have cycling dreams?

    So far I haven't... I always dream about when I worked for Dr. Pepper... Driving a truck and stocking shelves in grocery stores and so forth. Sometimes they are pleasant dreams but often they are nightmares. I think a cycling dream would be interesting...

    All of the time. Typically, I'm re-living an especially enjoyable ride. Sometimes, I'm riding in a place I've yet to visit, but have wanted to just for the ride.

    Cycling Dreams? Sure do. They cycle between wining the lottery; owning a condo in Hawaii; and finding the secret recipe.


    I remember working in a bottling plant as a summer job when I was a kid. What a hot, sweaty, thankless job. Don't remember the boss too much except he always seemed to shout.

    Haven't ever had a cycling dream that I remember, but I very rarely remember dreams at all. I was a pretty serious runner from about 20 years, until my knees gave out in my 40s. That was 20 years afo, and I still have running dreams occasionally.

    Funny thing. I had a 10-speed when I was in high school, but after I pretzeled the wheel I did not ride until I was 21 or so. I'd gone across the country on a motorcycle. One day I bought a bicycle and rode it. I was hooked. That night I had dreams of being on that bike; I could feel the way I balanced on it. It was what got me into the bicycle lifestyle.

    Assuming you are referring to dreams one has while sleeping, yes I do occasionally. I don't remember many dreams, but typically the biking ones involve me in some sort of tense traffic situation, struggling to get to my destination. Thankfully, my real rides are much more enjoyable!

    I had my first cycling dream the other night... I dreamt my break levers were loose on the handlebar, and as I was riding down the road I pulled the left one off. As I was riding down the road I was trying to figure out how I was going to pull the break without any leverage from the handlbar. I wonder what the hell that means???

    Did, managed some tours, But Glaucoma kicked in , now I stick close to home
    so I Have access to the VA medical center, and the mail box
    to get the medications to preserve what, of my sight, is left.

    They don't ship to any Post Office any where in the world, just to home address..

    Though the Military Machine was happy to sent my young self
    anywhere on the planet, for their nefarious purposes.

    Hmmm... The rare front tire flat... That must have some deep rooted implications.

    Yes I do, usually in the days preceding a race, when I'm constantly pondering strategy and visualizing various race scenarios and outcomes. I fall asleep with those thoughts, and they infiltrate my dreams.

    No dreams of bicycling, but after racing moto/HS for 25 years my dreams are of me having supernatural dirt bike handling skills, and I always miss the start of the race cuz I can't get geared up/saddled up quick enough .....

    I don't dream about bicycling. I do dream about running races and playing basketball games. In my B Ball dreams I have moves that puts MJ on his a**. My cross over move is so good that spectators sitting behind the basket fall from their seats.

    Lots of dreams where I ride a bike. Couldn't tell you what I was riding though. As Lance says, "It's not about the bike."

    My dream just slapped your paltry attempt at a jump shot back in yo' dream's face, shorty.

    If you dream that you are cycling naked, do you wake up with a sore butt?

    An interesting question. My answer is yes. I have dreamed of riding someplace where it is late twilight. It's very warm (I like summer weather) and the lighting is
    sort of like a Ridley Scott movie.
    I thought I was suffering from depression once. Turned out, I was simply surrounded by idiots.

    When my primary form of exercise was swimming, I used to dream about suddenly acquiring supernatural talent enabling a Bob Beamon-esque performance. Typically I would be able to fly through the air 15-50' above the ground using a modified butterfly stroke. I was absolutely crushing world records.

    Now that I'm riding a bicycle, my flying dreams will include me sitting on the bike saddle unleashing previously unknown superpowers.

    Great fun.
