    Yes, I am a cyclist. No, I do not belong to a club (but I wouldn't mind it, if I didn't have to do so much laundry on saturdays to wash all my sweaty garments). And like Chris L., I only have one (operational) bike. But what makes me a cyclist?

    I think it could be any one of the following things:

    1) I ride a bike (of course).

    (the rest of these reasons are optional)

    2) I sometimes look up to the upper left-hand corner of my glasses while I'm walking, to check behind me.

    3) I have cheered weary shoppers at the Kroger supermarket with a bright, blinking red light attached to my person.

    4) I am sometimes late to work, my only REAL excuse being I wanted to cycle in.

    5) I have felt the joy of giving joggers a near fatal heart attack.

    6) I now do not automatically speak kindly to dogs.

    7) I consider everyone else who cycles a potential friend.

    I know that there are probably 1,001 ways to identify a cyclist from the crowd. These are only a few off the top of my head.

    Ok, you convinced me... Now, do i dare ask you to list the other 994 ways to identify a cyclist from the crowd.

    I can name a few...

    8) On your shopping list, you have a Good Fuel / Bad Fuel category

    9) You would rather eat your bannana through a pin poked hole then take the peel off.

    10) When driving you find yourself looking for a water bottle under the seat every 5 min.

    12. Bugs in your teeth.

    13. That happy, invigorated endorphin attitude.

    16. I've got to eat something...again.

    17. When I talk to my boss, I sit down, stretch my legs way out, lean back and say, "AAAaaahhhh! That feels good!"

    18. I see my bike parked in the living room, and I stop to think, "Sexy..."

    19. I'm the only one at the entire workplace of hundreds of people who cycles to work, and yet I think they are the ones who are different.

    20. I ask a lady at work, "How's your husband," because he's a cyclist.

    21. I still can't figure out why everyone is not riding bikes as much as possible.

    22. I can't believe I wasted so many years not cycling.

    23. I spend way too much time on this forum!

    27. Spiffy chainring scars.

    28. You spend $2200 year for a bike website where people can talk about how much they want to sleep with there bikes.

    Man, i say we stop at 101 ways to identify a cyclist from the crowd...

    29. I shave my legs. (Uh...oh yeah...I should right?)

    30. Bike-evangelist - I tell EVERYONE that they should ride a bike.

    31. I must be the only adult in my company that carries baby wipes -- for themselves. Nah, folks, it isn't for THAT.

    32. My bike has a name. Whoops--meant that for "Why People Think I'm Mental" list.

    33. I wear padded shorts, but I'm not a circus/rodeo clown.

    34. I own a car, but my bike is CLEANER and better maintained than my car.

    35. I get cranky when I'm NOT riding.

    36. Nice butt, nice legs at any age.

    37. Better endurance than most anybody (except your other bike friends).

    38. looks out the office window at 3:00 PM; one glance at his/her bike in the parking lot, one glance at the weather.

    39. Volunteers to make lunch runs for colleagues in the office- via bike, of course. Can bring back hot lunch, cold drinks, and not spill any of it.

    40. Happy to hear that gas prices are going up again. It justifies even more bike purchases.

    43. Justifies buying a $1500-2000 bike with "Look how much money I save commuting on my bike?" I figure $0.50/mile - $7.00 parking plus $3 gas/20 miles round trip.) BTW, so far none of the justifications have worked, but I have turned my $400 bike into a $1000 bike, and only cyclists would notice how.

    44. Justifies new saddle with "You don't want me to get IMPOTENT, do you?"

    Agree wholeheartedly with all previous points but especially Pete's 21-23 and Technogirl's 34-35. And, Joe, can you describe/explain eating the banana through a pinhole? :confused:

    Yes, Joe, could you explain that one to me, too? (I know I sound ignorant, but I'm open to new input.)

    45. Your wife threatens to leave you if you don't spend less time on the bike, and you are really stumped on this one.

    Ya, Mike...I'd like a ham & pastrami w/swiss on rye w/tomatoes, mayo & mustard...take your time, I live in Atlanta...how far is that from the Snowy Midwest?

    Everytime i go out riding, i put a bannana or two in my camel bak, somehow on every ride it ends up under 5 pounds of gear, and is totaly sqashed, its easyer to poke a hole in one end and suck out the bannana as a pudding then to eat it normal

    Aww, you guys dont do that? its kinda like bannana baby food, good stuff...

    49. Your bike costs more than your car.

    50. Your cars sit out in the worst of weather and you have a garage, but it is occupied by bikes, a repair stand and tools.

    51. Your video tape library is cycling shows and movies.

    52. You can reflect on your early days and can tell people how PK Ripper, Hutch, Paramount, and Western Flyer got you started.

    53. You have more stories about almost being hit by lightning than anyone you know.

    54. Part of your weekly expenses are batteries for lights.

    55. You can survive on GU and Power Bars and like it.

    Right on, Hunter, right on. Your list really hits home with me. My wife looked and said, "Geesh, I didn't think there were two of you." Of course, she parks her car in the driveway because the garage is for bikes.

    Funny, man. Good stuff.

    56. You screw bottle cages to your dashboard because water bottles won't fit in the cupholders.

    Hey, Hunter, I hadn't thought about it, but, with upgrades, my bike is worth more than my car!
    If it ain't broke, mess with it anyway!
