What's The Stangest Cycling-Related Dream You've Had?

I dreamt that I was being held hostage at gunpoint by Brett Michaels. My only chance to escape was when he went out to mow the lawn. I could only take one item with me. What did I choose? My cycling shoes.

Can't wait to see the other "tales of the subconscience".

Had to do with the regular cycling I did out in the back country and seeing a young woman bareback riding a horse in this vast mountain pasture. I fantasized meeting up with the girl at the fence and joining her in the creek for some uh, "frolicking."

This was a reoccurring dream, and every time I rode my bike out in the back country, I'd look for that young lady riding the horse... sadly, I never saw her again. I did cool off in the creek one hot summer though.

Not really sure. I don't usually remember my dreams after being awake for 5 minutes.

Any cycling dream would be strange to me. I can't recall ever dreaming about cycling and remembering it or a hint of it

Not that strange, but I was in a *****tunn of crit pileups when I was racing USCF.
I usually sleep on my side and even now 20 years later, I still have dreams I've crashed again and am sliding on my hip with the asphalt abrading away my skin & flesh.
It's always such a relief to wake up in a soft bed and not have to get the little rocks & cr@p picked out of my leg, then have the wound scrubbed with a stiff bristle brush.

I often dream I am riding a bicycle without a seat. Probably because I am told to do so, so often.







Sorry about that, but this IS foo.

Not too strange, but I had a dream where I was riding outdoors. Slowly (in that weird dream sort of way) the outdoors turned into the interior of a department store. I was then weaving between the racks and customers on my bike. I woke up shortly thereafter.

I had a dream where I saw myself riding my bike down a pyramid while wearing some sort of sun-god robes with a thousand naked women screaming and throwing little pickles at me.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I dreamt I set a RAAM record, riding a fixed gear trick riding backwards all the way. How strange is that one?
