    bike dreams

    OK, we all know what it's like to bike when you are awake and half-awake. but what about when you're sleeping? relate your bike-related dreams here...

    Here's mine: a while ago, I dreamed I was riding this bike that had rubbery handlebars. it was extremely hard to maneuver, but I was just figuring out how to do it when I woke up.

    what bike dreams have you had lately?

    Just getting to ride is a dream of mine right now. To push down on the pedals, feel the wind on my face. OHHHH what a dream.

    Single Track! Serious question for all you foosters. Will you all hate me if I admit I am building single track throughout the plantations? We have about 400 acres right now and we beat down paths moving ATVs back and forth. 400 acres of the nicest single track (and double) you ever saw...

    I could almost feel guilty if I wasn't busy saving the planet...

    I had a dream that I rode for hours and hours and hours and never got tired or my back never hurt. I felt so free. It was the best ever. I rode forever..........

    In my dreams, I can do wheelies forever. Too bad they're only dreams.

    Are we talking literal, while-you-sleep dreams? Or imagination dreams?

    Last night/this morning, I dreamt that the LBS owner that sponsors our club presented me (and others) with stuff that had been supposedly retrieved from my trash. There was some pot and some vials, and other stuff I had never seen before. They told me that I needed to fill out an explanation for the items, or I wouldn't be able to ride with the club. Just as I was starting to get agitated, I realized I was having a dream and chose to wake up.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    I have had bicycle dreams in which I effortlessly rode for hours through beautiful areas that are almost, if not impossible for me in reality.

    I generally don't remember what I dream about. And I don't think I dream about bicycles very much.

    USAZorro, that's funny.

    I dream I'm touring through Europe, or the US southwest. The dreams are pretty realistic, I get hungry, I take rests, check my map, and just feel really really free. Gotta go on another tour soon.

    Mine would be riding in the Great Northwest. Cool air, beautiful scenery, not a soul in sight until I see Eva Longoria in a field of flowers with a picnic lunch. Lucky for me, I’m a married man or the dream could get dicey from there!

    Mine generally involve bonking. Kind of like my real life rides.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    My dreams are best not told but rest assured they have nothing to do with bikes.
    Life is about hanging onto what you think is important and finding out what really is important.

    When I'm trying to go to sleep I can't even think about bikes. It is like I find a second or third wind and want to go ride. Best cycling dream started with mountain biking. After riding, rode down the road to a bar and my family and friends were all hanging out. Party started up, and then the alarm woke me up.


    crtreedude, you are not alone. I got a similiar project going right now. Same number of acres, just in Texas. We should share notes or something.
