    The Bicycle Addiction Test

    A friend sent this to me....amazing how many I said yes too....

    • Do you use Bicycles 2 or more times a week?
    • Do you find yourself going on ever-increasing numbers of rides?
    • Do you find that you cannot turn down a ride?
    • Have you tried unsuccessfully to limit your use of bikes?
    • Do people tell you that you have "changed" since you began biking?
    • Do you find yourself choosing friends because of their access to bikes or their bike use?
    • Do you have intrusive thoughts about biking?
    • Can you drive past a bike store without stopping?
    • Do you have an intimate relationship with your bike mechanic?
    • Do you habitually wear your bike shorts under your regular clothes?
    • Do you try to jump speed bumps while driving your car?
    • Do you become depressed, annoyed, or otherwise despondent when you can't use your bike?
    • Do you believe that your bike has some medicinal value in treating a problem you've had with energy, motivation, confidence, depression or sex?

    If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, you may have a serious addiction. We suggest that you seek immediate professional attention

    • Do you use Bicycles 2 or more times a week? YES
    • Do you find yourself going on ever-increasing numbers of rides? Yes(?)
    • Do you find that you cannot turn down a ride? Don't get many offers
    • Have you tried unsuccessfully to limit your use of bikes? NO (what on earth for?)
    • Do people tell you that you have "changed" since you began biking? NO (I was strange before)
    • Do you find yourself choosing friends because of their access to bikes or their bike use? I would if I could find some.
    • Do you have intrusive thoughts about biking? NO ( I don't find them intrusive)
    • Can you drive past a bike store without stopping? Drive?
    • Do you have an intimate relationship with your bike mechanic? I AM my bicycle mechanic, so, yes.
    • Do you habitually wear your bike shorts under your regular clothes? Regular clothes?
    • Do you try to jump speed bumps while driving your car? What car?
    • Do you become depressed, annoyed, or otherwise despondent when you can't use your bike? Actually its the itching under the plaster which really bugs me.
    • Do you believe that your bike has some medicinal value in treating a problem you've had with energy, motivation, confidence, depression or sex? YES to all.

    If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, you may have a serious addiction. We suggest that you seek immediate professional attention. Does not compute.
