Anyone else have this problem...BWS?

I'm just about to move from sunny warm South Australia to the US....

I just had to break down my bikes for shipping overseas... and I am starting to experience some serious BWS (Bike Withdrawal Syndrome).
I ride all the time here...commuting, single track, etc... and rarely take my car anywhere except to put the bike on it to get to the trails at times.
So I've gone from doing about 170 km's a week to 0.... and it kinda feels like someone walked up and kicked your dog.

just had to vent.... thanks

maybe once I get there and settled... only about a week and a half to go. I'm just going through withdrawal between now and then is all.
When you're used to going 90% car free by choice as a lifestyle it feels pretty weird.

I travel for work, and miss the bike when I'm on the road. Sometimes I'm able to grab a bikeshare and go for a ride.

I understand 100%. I also ride everyday, one way or another and feel "off" if I can't ride.
