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

Lullaby Of Foo

Now I lay me down to sleep
Keep my bike safe from the bicycle thief
Keep my tootsies toasty warm
keep my carbon from any harm

Good Night Road Bike
Good Night Moutain Bike
Good night all you Foosters
And good night Moon

• 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.
