As some of you know I have not been a cyclist for over 35 years, and about 2 months ago got myself a bike... not knowing what to expect... Well.... I think even though I have only done about 60-70 miles in total over Saturday and Sunday I have the bug...

I am on holiday so will not get out on it for two weekends and I have observed the following :-

1. I was ready for a holiday with all the crap at work.. too insecure at the moment
2. It has given me time to look at my finances and I think I could retire if I wanted
3. I have sent out my CV for jobs...

But more important and surprising....

4. I miss my bike and going out lol

Oh dear I have the cycling bug :smile:

Sounds like you're hooked. It's one addiction you don't need to be ashamed of.

That’s great! I must admit I’ve been similar, couldn’t get me off my bike up until about 11 years old but then didn’t ride one til I was 28. After a few short rides and getting a bit fitter I feel cheated on anything less than 100mi a week.

Keep it up! If you get a bit jaded try looking into group riding/clubs if you’re not already part of one.

Well I don't drink. I don't smoke. I don't do drugs. I don't have a social life. My one vice in life is that bike and it keeps me sane.
Well maybe there is more to life than cycling, but it's a very big part of my life. Always was, always will be.
No mum, it's not just a bike, it really isn't. It's a way of life, literally.

I couldn't imagine life without my bike really. It might be a Triggers Broom, but better than no broom :smile:

When ever we go abroad for a week I find myself getting anxious by day 3 or 4. I have hired local bikes and headed off in to the hills on occasions, just to calm me down. My wife says I am more bearable once I have got it out of my system......
My wife is the same gets to the point where she tells me go hire a bike and ride.^_^

I must admit I feel like i’ve Missed out if I can’t get at least one ride in, I even took the excuse to nip to the shops on one of the ratty old mtb’s the hotel had to borrow in Cyprus a couple of years ago, needed the rest but also needed to get a ride done as well!

If I’m getting irritable I have come home to my cycling stuff out and the wife telling me to bugger off for a few hours haha
