Your tires have lost all their air since you last rode your bike.

You start looking for places to go just so you can ride there...

That's me. I ride 15-20 miles daily, and I still feel as though I didn't ride enough.

You can only talk about the same bikes and panniers and saddles so many times. Foo is a great place to talk about randomness.

Though I really do wish the Books/TV/Movies forum was combined with Foo. Those threads would get a lot more action. And c'mon, I need to talk Downton Abbey with someone!

You seriously think about trading in your mountain bike for a Pugsley 'fat bike' since it now matches your physique.

You have to relearn how to walk when wearing clipless cycling shoes.
