You know you're a cyclist when...
 
You get spam with the heading "Lose unwanted LBS", and your first thought is "Why would anyone want to lose their local bike shop?"

You know you're a cyclist when you have given your bike a name. But then again, maybe that also works for cars. Maybe you're a cyclist when after a hard day's work, you go meet your friends who are also biking enthusiasts and go for a ride.

I hate to say this but I actually thought that "LBS" WAS local bike shop. It was the same when my brother flew in from Canada for a seminar, and told me that "he would be staying at the MBS (Marina Bay Sands) and my first thought was MyBikeShop, the actual name of the shop I go to. Please tell me there's nothing wrong with me.

Or when you feel a fool after trying to clip into the gas and clutch pedal when you get in your car.

...when you realize that you're pushing the shopping cart from the ramps.

you have a spandex setting on your dryer

You take vacation days to go riding.

You have a collection of old Nashbar catalogs around your living quarters.

You have chuckled at "the Eddie Scene" in "American Flyers".

No matter where you were, or what you were doing, you mourned when you learned that Sheldon Brown
had died.

not just bikes... I was driving home one day after I just had a flying lesson. I got on the highway and, when I got up to speed, I reached down between the seats to set the "trim wheel" to maintain my speed. :rolleyes:

Gu starts to taste good. But only the Chocolate Outrage, of course.

You find yourself talking about bicycle things and no one in the room is listening....and you're ok with that.

Coming back from a ride with your legs engorged with blood makes you feel like a badass.


What do you mean "off the bike"?

El Cid 09-24-14 07:55 PM

... when you're at the grocery store and you ask for a shopping cart with drop bars.

EBF 01-04-15 04:23 PM

... when you walk or drive in the street and think: "I forgot to put on my helmet"

MNBikeCommuter 01-08-15 11:57 AM

...when you see tracks ahead and try to lift out of the seat....while you're driving.

genec 01-08-15 12:27 PM

when you do over the shoulder head checks... while walking in the supermarket...

mobilemail 01-08-15 06:37 PM

When you go to a fall festival event dressed in your cycling kit and someone says, "what are you dressed up as", and you say, "me". Really happened...

When you can out drive everyone else in a blizzard in your cheap car with summer tires.

Followed by "Do you shave your legs or do you just have no hair?"

when you fall over the bicycle going down a mountain trail, and the first thought you have is that if the bike is okay, instead of being worried about yourself.

It happened to me many times.

Or similar... as paramedics were carting me away; I started crying because they wouldn't take my bike (they just wanted to leave it out in the wilderness all alone... no one to keep it safe!). Thankfully the ranger agreed to take me instead and thew the bike onto his truck... I was more concerned about the bike than my busted ankle... :(
