I'm addicted to my bike!

I haven't ridden in 12 years and now I look for any excuse to ride, is there a cure for this?

I hear you there. The last two weeks were spent doing a final project. The few days is cramming for my friday math exam. The weekend is for cramming for mondays exam. The days between then and thursday is for writing a paper. The days after that? Riding bliss.

I always feel like riding whenever it's dark outside, and I can't actually ride... then by the morning I'm tired and don't feel like getting up, but going for a leasurely ride in the morning is a great way to wake up.
