Did you ever have a dream about your bike?

Ok. I've had dreams about riding, but never one about a specific bike. That is, until last night. I went to sleep knowing I had things to do in the morning, so I knew I wouldn't get out until just before noon. That meant I was gonna stay local. Which meant the Masi was my ride for the day. In the dream I'm about to leave and I grab the bars of my Masi to roll the bike out of my house. Well, the right hand half of the bars comes off in my hand with half the stem still attached. Then I look down at the frame and the three main tubes are crushed, missing half the paint and rusted. It seemed like my entire family was in the house and I'm questioning every one of them, but no one knew what happened. I almost took the dream as a warning and thought about riding a different bike. But, I did go out on the Masi. I rode 55 miles and it and me are still in one piece.

Anyone else have freaky bike dreams?

Ahh, No. I like C&V bikes, and biking in general, but I guess not that much. Tim

Unfortunately the few dreams I had with my bikes in them, they end up getting stolen or lost someway or the other.......I dunno,..... Maybe I'm just getting too attached to these inanimate............but beautiful machines.......
Time to cool my jets on bikes for a while, maybe??

Ha, like Chombi1, most of mine have also featured the theft of my bicycle. In some I'm doing something stupid that I'd never do in my waking life - like leaning it against a building while I cross the street to buy something - only to find a thief walking away with it. One was so vivid I woke up with a start, half grieving the loss of my bike before realizing it was sitting there at the foot of my bed. All a dream, all a terrible dream.

Having done 108 miles and preparing to do 95 more the next day for STP this past weekend, the night between featured dreams of just a dizzying march of feet on pedals, stretching into the distance on the road ahead, going round and round.

Same here. I wake up mad that my bike was stolen and it takes a while to realize I'm mad about something that didn't happen.

I actually had a weird bike dream early this morning. It's sort of fuzzy, but I think my Raleigh Twenty (with the defective 2-speed kickback hub) was hanging by its front wheel in the garage. I was trying to slide the fork into the head tube and I couldn't get the bottom bearings to seat on the crown race - the bike was sort of swinging around. I recall lots of messy grease and frustration because I just couldn't get the parts to align.

My wife is often mad at me for something "I" did in a dream of hers.

I rarely dream or I don't remember most of them. Funny though, just the other night, maybe Tuesday night, I dreamed of crashing into another rider going the opposite direction. He supidily decided to go around one going the other way in front of him and his left drop attacked mine. Then I woke up. It was like two rams butting heads with an offset.

Okay, you know, that is kinda alarming!


But to the question at hand, yes, I've definitely had bike related dreams, but I have only very vague memories of them. At least one time the theft of my bike was involved. Pretty sure I've had dreams of finding the holy grail, too. But I forget then as soon as I wake up, so it's hard to say exactly what they were about.

Dreaming about your bike is a bit odd, but waking up all sticky takes it to a whole 'nother level.

...cleans coffee from keyboard and desk.

To the original question: I don't think so. But remembered dreams are fairly uncommon for me. So yes! Maybe.
