You use your helmet as a hairstyling device. HelmetHead is a Hairstyle Right?
Most of your pants have frayed cuffs and chain-grease marks.
You are polite to most everyone, you blush at some rap songs, but you swear like a drunken sailor when a Grandma in an SUV cuts you off!
Although you speak English, you're perfectly capable of pronouncing several words in Italian or French.
The friend who was so happy to see you on his morning drive wonders why you gave him the finger when he honked.
You think nothing of walking into public places dressed like a super hero.
When someone says "It's only a bicycle," your jaw drops and your eyes bug out, you'll gasp "ONLY A BICYCLE?"
A car goes by with two (your preferred gender here) carrying two bikes. Later, you can't recall their hair color or what make car, but you can ID the bikes' make, model and color.
You sometimes wish you had a longer commute to work, just so you could ride more.
You have 3 bikes and you absolutely need more. I have too many bikes (said no cyclists ever!)
You've wiped out in your favourite post ride haunt, since you forgot you were wearing your clipless shoes.
You ride 50km, one way, with a twenty in your pocket and if you actually buy something, you consider leaving the change because of the weight.
You choose a seat by the window so you can "see your bike" while you chat with friends at your favourite post-ride restaurant.
You and your cycling friends can recreate the Jaws scene where Quint, Brody, and Hooper compare scars, each with an even better story, except yours go something like "This is from a 1996 Honda Civic that turned left in front of me and put me over the hood."
Multi-ton cars and trucks tear along in front, alongside and behind you... your pulse rate: 66.
You shop for your spring wardrobe at our store, rather than malls and clothing stores.
You practice track stands and bunny hops in your spare time.
You know the location of all the major potholes between your home and office.
If you can relate to any of these....you're officially a cyclist!
PROBLEM: Ugh! Your new bike is great... except for the seat!
CAUSE: It might be adjusted wrong or simply wrong for your anatomy.
SOLUTION: We can help! Drop by so we can look at your bike to check the seat adjustment. If it's okay, we'll show you some different seats from our selection. There are many widths and padding styles to choose from. Plus, if your current seat is still new, we may be able to trade it for a different model!
Safe Lane Positioning - A frequent hazard to cyclists occurs when motorists pass and then abruptly turn right. This happens for various reasons. Drivers may underestimate a cyclist's speed or may be "asleep at the wheel." Regardless, it spells serious danger for cyclists. Fortunately, you can take measures to protect yourself. First, be especially cautious at intersections. If the lane is narrow and traffic is moving about your speed, take the entire lane, which lets followers know it's unsafe to pass. And, never assume that it's safe to pass a slow-moving line of cars on the right, because one might turn into you.
