    Let's try adding to it!

    You know you're addicted when....you haven't worn a skirt or dress to work since you started MTB, not wanting to bother to explain the various knicks, cuts and bruises that decorate your legs.

    Great idea Sunny!

    You know you're addicted when...

    You buy a house because it's across the street from the trailhead.
    You go to visit your bike in storage while you're recovering from injury to see if it misses you too.

    You read MTBR articles to your 3 year old (and think they're interested).

    Thanks for including pictures MTBR.
    Please donate to IMBA or your local IMBA chapter. It's trail karma.

    You find a financial advisor who mountain bikes and doesn't question when you tell him that he has to make you enough $$ to buy your dream mountain bike.

    You call your financial advisor to discuss $$, and you spend more time discussing mountain biking.

    You're on vacation in September and realize that it's the first time since the snow melted that you've had 2 days in a row without biking.

    My first question when we were looking at houses to buy was "How close is the nearest bike trail?"
    Yeah. We bought a house directly across from the bike trail. 15 seconds has me cruising anywhere I want to go on nice wide paved city scenic trails.

    My addition is how I can go from thinking I need a new genre of bike one week, the next week I'm looking at frame builds and researching brands, and somehow by week 3, I have a complete in my garage. Even I am amazed at how that happens!

    ● ALL of your socks are cycling-specific.
    ● Six packets of chamois butter in your purse.
    ● You keep baby wipes in your car.. and you don't have a baby.
    ● You crave tortilla chips for the salt.
    ● You have tried chocolate-espresso goo on ice cream (it was delicious!).
    ● You wear arm warmers to work in winter.
    ● At any given time there are two -sometimes three- bikes in your bedroom.
    Never give up, never surrender.

    This!! I just realized this is why my favorite brand of tortilla chips are my favorite, they are perfectly salty. (Green Mountain Gringo- Organic Blue Corn Torilla Strips).
