1) You put on your jeans and they already have the right leg rolled up.

 

2) You do laundry when you don't have any more clean bike shorts.

Your heart rate goes up when you start driving up a long hill.

- you dont even bother to clean the grease chain patterns off your leg anymore, or better yet, you have a permanent tattoo of them

 

- you carry at least 10 extra items in your bag related to 'on the road bike maintenance' and 'night time riding'

 

- you realize you've paid more for your bike clothes in sum total then your work clothes

 

- you take a long ride and wind up waving to at least five other cyclists you know

 

- youve become friendly with at least 2 or 3 bike mechanics

 

 

 

 

Not all day but I usually get the hint when people keep looking at my ankles.

13) You walk around the office with reflective pant leg straps on your ankles all day. (I do this quite often and no one bothers to tell me).

When your bike is worth more than your car.
You have guest bikes.
You also have guest helmets & U-locks. And socks...and gloves...and water bottles......
  • You get depressed reading the lost stolen bike registry website http://chicago.stolenbike.org/
  • You’ve spent more money on cycling related items than on your significant other in the last three months
Yep...Is my bike ok?

you crash and your first question is...How's my bike?

 

Riding a bike through a big, congested city and feeling smarter than everyone else because you're moving.

 

 

 

when you are the one people go to for purchasing a bike, pros and cons list
You convinced your girlfriend who hasn't hardly touched a bike in 15 years to buy one and is now excited about riding.
...after you've grown your third new layer of skin on your hips, elbows, legs...
Absolutely!

If it’s spent on tandem it counts in both totals right?
