    57. You pull your car over to help a couple of really big guys who are struggling to push their stalled car up a hill and as soon as you jump in with your "cycling legs," you make short work of it (and they are amazed, wondering
    what kind of trick you just pulled since you are a little shrimp).

    58. You are out walking and you find you cannot keep your cadence down slow enough.

    59. You ask coworkers how they are, they say, "It's Monday, I'm here, that's all," and you restrain yourself from saying, "Really? I feel fantastic today...you must not be taking care of yourself."

    60. When you look at people you often wonder how they can stand it, not getting ANY exercise.

    61. You used to be envious of people driving huge luxury cars, but now when you see them you think, "Does your
    body look as good as your car?"

    lets see....

    62. You download a program onto your Palm Pilot that determines exactly when the sun will go down in your geographical location so you know how much time you have to hit the trails after work.

    63. You're proud when you crash because you can claim "First Blood" of the season.

    64. Despite being hit by a car and breaking your leg, you can walk 20 yards to pick up your bike and move it out of traffic before passing out from the pain (I lived this one!)

    65. No matter how old, outdated, or obsolete - you just can't bring yourself to throw away old bike parts.

    I felt that joy on one summer morning when I was actually jogging myself at the time. It was about 30 degrees C (at 6 am mind you) and another guy decided he wanted a race with me. I went with him for a while and then let him go, thinking he was just too fast for me. I saw him hunched over about 400 metres later, taking stupidly deep breaths and coughing like something I can't describe.

    Oh yeah, and:

    67. More and more, you think, "This car is so useless."

    68. You feel guilty for driving somewhere you could have biked.

    69. You begin to despise cars in every way, shape and form (this is probably at the root of why we cyclists are so hated...it's instinctive on the part of motorists to hate their mortal enemy, without even knowing why).

    70. You love every cyclist, especially little kids who go nowhere else but the end of the driveway (part of #69).

    71. Riding along the river, you can hear the ducks and geese.

    72. Seeing the Canada geese at the edge of the fog on the water, looking like they're suspended in mid air.

    73. Water droplets from the fog dripping off your helmet.

    74. No one on the road except you, extending your ride just for the hell of it and being late for work.

    75. Getting to work late, and everyone there understands.

    You won't do that in your car, and that was just this mornings ride in!

    76. You arrive at work in the middle of winter sweating.

    77. You have made useful items out of old inner tubes and chains.

    78. You go into department stores and your only reason for doing so is to twist and turn parts on Huffy's and Murray's.

    79. Your search for property, a house, or a apartment depends on trail or good road riding locations.

    From this thread it would appear that we don't know the 101 sign of a cyclist, this cannot be the case can it?

    81. When they here the work cassette they don't think of music, it reminds them their chain needs oiling.

    Man I feel left out on this one. The thread wasn't even started when I went riding and when I got back there were about 34 posts. Sorry, this was best I could do on short notice!

    Don't feel bad dirtgrinder, this thread was actually started before your time. I was looking through some of the old threads and decided to bring this one back to life.
    Booyah!!

    85. People ridicule you for riding in the rain, snow and cold, but you don't care what they think because they aren't even cyclist.

    86. Your snot rocket aim is incredible

    89. You continue to check the weather radar loop, but you ride regardless of the color or motion of the picture.

    90. People continue to tell you that you can eat endlessly and never gain weight - that it must be nice to be that lucky - as they complain of a thyroid condition or a low metabolism, or ......

    91. When driving your car, you're more interested in the road terrain and elevation than you are in the conversation of the passenger with you.

    92. You think a brand new pair of gloves with missing fingers is cool.

    93. You wear spandex (or any other stretch fabric) and don't think twice about it.

    94. Owning clothes and a bike in colors that you would never wear to work or paint your car with.

    95. You restrain yourself not to mock the drivers you're passing in rush hours.
    Prepare for the worst - that way any surprise will be a pleasant one.

    97. You spend money on bike parts without thinking of the family budget.

    98. You won't spend money on car parts because of the family budget.

    99. When taking the dog for a walk, you spend 10 minutes trying to attach the leash to the bike.
    I'd rather be riding.
