    -You catch yourself looking for ways to safely run reds and stops while driving your car.
    -You constantly check the weather reports to see what gear you might need to ride.

    8) You would recognize that threaded washer from a Presta valve stem anywhere.
    9) You know what the difference is between Ultrasensor, Core-Tech, and Microfiber jersey materials.

    When you try to move your foot from the gas pedal to the brake pedal you twist your foot in order to move it.

    When going around corners in your car you raise your inboard foot to keep from banging your clutch or accelerator on the ground.

    When you try to pedal the accelerator and brake in your car I'm a newbie, and already driving a car feels strange now--and a lot less fun that cycling!

    You walk with less stride so that you can keep up your cadence.

    increases by a factor of 4 (or better).

    22.You find out you are going to have a child and the first thing you

    still
    be a parent.

    23.You spend 2X the money on cycling wear that you do work clothes.

    24. You can tell your wife with a straight face that it's too hot to mow
    the lawn , then bike off for a century.

    25.You dream of winning the lottery and the first thing you think of is

    than yours.

    32.Your spouse can't take it anymore and takes up cycling.

    33.You wonder why a $500 bike has 24 gear ratios, while a $20,000 car or

    checked out BEFORE going to the hospital.
    35.You can't seem to get to work before 8:30am, but you don't have a

    You find it funny that your coworker has named her child after a famous bike racer ... Sammy Sanchez. I'm surprised she's even heard of him ... wow!

    6b. Your legs are smoother than your girlfriends.

    and you spend 2x the money on cycling attire then work clothes (if you do not count all the gear I carry around)...
    Just your average club rider... :)

    You don't have pictures of you family on the wall. They get in the way of pictures of your bikes.

    You know it's .8 miles to Steve's house, 1.2 to Debra's, 6.2 to the bike shop, etc.

    You never drive your car over anything that would damage a 700c 23mm tire.

    When driving the car, at the bottom of a hill you start making plans on how to get up the hill. You think you might tired at the top if you go too fast, so you slow to a more comfortable pace.

    You start driving the car at the speed you ride your bike at. (really)

    The car has to stay outside, the garage is full of bikes. After all, it's just a car!

    It's ok to get salt on the car and leave it dirty, but not a BIKE!~

    The Christmas tree is a pain........it makes it hard to set up the bike stand in the living room.

    You automatically stand up or go around bumps and potholes in the dark without even seeing them. You know where they are.

    You visit friends farther away, because it's a better ride.

    Four hour run time is not long enough for your light any more.

    Doing this becomes so easy you don't have to think about it.

    You don't understand why your friends don't want to talk about rolling resistance, aerodynamics, or wattage?

    You buy your house based on the garage, the door into the cellar and if you can get a bike in there.

    Your choice in a new pair of boots is influenced by how stiff the sole is, and how the leather looks at the 'flex points'

    You take your messenger bag with you when buying a new jacket, so you'll know how it feels and how far back the sleeves go when you stretch out.

    You think spending the first hours of your birthday riding on a frozen lake is perfect, even though your buddy's beer freezes while he is drinking it when you take a break.

    You can't walk without tripping, but you can execute perfectly-timed skids in heavy traffic without blinking.

    You amortize the cost of your new bike entirely in train, bus, and cab fares that you didn't need in the span of two months.

    Any mention of taxis elicits an internal reaction similar to the words, "the enemy."

    You've ever bloodied your knuckles punching a car that got too close.

    You begin making your own jewelry that contains old chain links, bike parts, etc.

    The only way you know how to get from one end of town to another doesn't include freeways.
