    Where does cycling rank in your life?

    Cycling ranks pretty high in my life. First of course is my family, and then my friends and then cycling.

    i can't really rank it, as it's something i do everyday. for me, it's similar to eating breakfast. i can go without it, but it throws the whole day off and i'm cranky.

    First thing in the morning, it outranks everything. Everything else that matters to me is either asleep or not on the schedule for several more hours.

    Hard to say. I'm in an odd spot, as I use cycling for more then just exercise or sport. I use cycling as my fitness program to treat my diabetes. The benifits to my family put it on par with the family. Without it...
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    Cycling is a sport but also an integral component of most everything in my life, so in my priorities.....

    #1 Family - cycling gets me to visit my folks & other family, keeps me fit so I'll be able to enjoy my kids & grandkids later in life.

    #2 Friends - not heavily centered around cycling but a means of transport to see them

    #3 Work - Cycling gets me there and back

    #4 Cycling just for fun.

    Looking at cycling in this light makes it so much easier to justify the $$ spent on the bikes

    Cycling makes my world go round.
    The world has a lot of starters but very few finishers.

    I'd say it's up there ...

    -- I quit my job, sold/tossed/gave-away/packed-up all my things, and then went on a 3 month cycling tour of Australia.

    -- I'm a temp now, but managed to wrangle 2 weeks vacation, after only being there for 5 months ... for a cycling event.

    -- I terminated my contract with the place I'm currently working about a week early ... so I could go on another cycling trip, and do two more cycling events before University starts.

    -- I've got tentative cycling events planned all the way through to 2011.

    -- I cycle 12 months of the year, outside, in the Canadian prairies.


    Just a few examples.

    Among my overall priorities, pretty low. Among my hobbies, pretty high, so I'll keep the list short:

    Science stuff (I'm a nerd)
    Soccer
    Cycling
    Computer stuff
    ...

    Cycling ranks very high for me, and increasing. It makes me really happy that I've gotten my girlfriend enthusiastic about it too. She rides practically everywhere now

    I find that there are just so many good reasons to do it... for exercise, for relaxation, for getting places fast, for the environment, to save money, to stop handing my money over to the Saudis, and last but not least because I *love* having messing with mechanical things.

    Sheldon Brown, I miss you. Thanks for the advice, ideas, humor, and infectious enthusiasm for everything bikes...

    It's a really huge part of my life, and I'm always thinking of how I can integrate it around other commitments--riding to work, going on group rides or long solos when I know my husband is sleeping (he works nights) or at school. I run most of my errands on my bike. I always give myself the leeway time it will take to bike there, as opposed to drive, and plan my routes, so that if I am picking up something heavy, that is my last stop, etc.

    Riding is just a part of my everyday life, but something I tend to take a lot of pleasure in and plan for. Just like posh cooking is for one of my best friends. It's a hobby, necessity, and passion.
    Wheeeee!

    I don't have priorities, just balance or the need for balance in life. All of those which are mentioned are important, just make sure you attend to all, not one before others, just a balance

    Cycling is a life style for me and my wife. We started in 1982 and it is "what we do." The neighbors and our relatives think we are nuts, but I've never understood watching football on tv or bass fishing either, so I guess we're even.

    BTW, we're heading out for a 40 mile ride as I speak... gotta go!

    Cycling is my fuel source, my energy, my addiction, my passion. I need that daily dose of endorphins...
