    You know you ride a lot when you're driving your car over rail road tracks and subconsciously slow down to avoid a pinch flat.

    OK, what's yours?

    You lean into a turn, and THEN realize you have to turn the steering wheel.

    You catch yourself looking for the "commando" route when caught in a traffic jam.

    You know you ride a lot when, as you walk down a crowded sidewalk, you keep checking for overtaking foot traffic in the helmet mirror that isn't there.

    One afternoon while on a bike tour, six of us walked from camp down to the nearby swimming hole to cool off. About halfway back, one of the guys piped up, "hey, look - we're running a double paceline!"

    You're riding in the car with your wife, glance in the mirror, and yell, "Car back."

    Whenever you get anywhere you go to take your helmet off.

    You know you ride a lot when the leather has worn away around the rivets on your Brooks saddle and you have a pattern of 6 dots permanently imprinted on your rear end.

    You know you ski and kayak a lot when you try to edge your car tires to carve a turn.

    When you know which trails to take to avoid meeting the group head on that you just saw on the other side of the valley.

    I had that, followed by "Your bike got stolen, what are you going to do?" with serious looks of concern on everyone's faces.

    Get fat evidently.
