10 signs you're a true cyclist

10 signs you're a true cyclist

Since bikes were first ridden, cyclists have developed a peculiar array of preoccupations and habits that signify their commitment to the sport.

Here at The Cycling Bug we've come up with a list of quirks that only a true cyclist will identify with.

Can you identify with our list? What are the giveaways that you're a true cyclist?


1. You don't even swerve when a swarm of insects fly into your face


2. You understand EXACTLY why dogs do this:


3. You can ride literally ANYTHING with wheels and 2 pedals


4. You CANNOT pass a beautiful bike in the street without stopping to admire it

It's ok, we're partial to some cheeky bike stalking too - check out our #mybikeishotterthanyours gallery.


5. You've managed to inspire at least one other member of your household to take up cycling


6. Your bike has NEVER spent the night outside


7. You don't think twice about balancing a heavy load while riding


8. You freak out if your bike is stuck in a workshop for longer than 3 days


9. You understand what's going on here and you want one


10. Nothing makes you happier than a pair of freshly pumped tyres and a newly oiled chain

1,2,4,6,8,9 and 10! New bike has been on show in the lounge since purchase (other than when being ridden) - well it does require charging for the Di2's - that's my excuse at the moment... It is a work of art too...
