    when you search out carbon fiber handlebars because they act as less of a heat sink when you're in -30 weather.
    and you don't give a fig what they weigh because the crusted salt/sludge weighs more anyways...

    I love this one. I come into work and everyone is griping about how bad the weather is. Poor things, they had to walk almost half a block out in the weather from the parking garage to the main building!

    Then of course they act all amazed that I cycled in through some light rain when they know I ride every day and have to ask how I do it and be amazed again. A little light rain? It was a day that ended in 'y' right?

    Exactly! I've thought that for years, same with SPD pedal shoes. Insulating insoles make a world of difference.

    ... When you think about everything as will it fit in my panniers or back pack?

    Oh yeah - insulating insoles, they are awesome. My first year, after so many, of commuting where I bought insulating insoles and it has been a great winter for my feet.

    I would not pose in pink. We did add to my wife's bike collection for Christmas (new road bike). More of a replacement than an addition. I haven't added or replaced a bike in well over a year.

    1/2 a block? The folks in my office walk at MOST 100 FEET and they gripe and moan and whine. I ride 3.5 to 14 miles in 20 degrees, sleet, snow, rain and I love every inch of it.

    You're ok with showing up to the sat AM group ride with a rack on the back of your road bike, because you converted it into your "Fast Commuter". (And later after you drop most everyone on the climbs they start talking to you again...)

    I just read through most of these. I started commuting by bike this past September... Should have started years ago. I have to use a folder because I can't bring a regular bike on the railroad. I'm too far out to ride the whole way.
    When I show up in the morning, the security guards and receptionists always can't believe that I rode in in the cold. It hasn't been that cold yet, people.

    I'm feeling that one. I bought studded snow tires. It almost never snows here, and it sticking around long enough to actually create the conditions that I'd need them is even rarer, but I'm damned if I'm not going to ride in if I can. Of course, third winter in a row now I've had no use for them.

    You have to meet somebody at home and you check the direction of the wind to let him know what time you will be there.

    When being as visible as possible is number one, comfort is two, reliable is three, and being as light and fast as possible is way down the list.

    When collegues dont say "hi" or "good morning" but to the other collegues "I told you he would ride his bike in this weather!" when you come into the office.

    When your bike is the only one in the rack at work

    When you have all bike tools 4 times: in the pannier, at the housedoor, shed and basement

    When you try new clothing in a store by putting it on and make movements as you are on the bike: knees up and down, arms stretched forward etc

    When you have different chain oil for every season

    When you can tell all the rules in the right order from your memory

    When you dont want to ride a bike when you are ofr because the bike reminds you of work

    (will now read the whole thread, some of it might have been there already)

    When you change jobs and move, and are disappointed that the commute is shorter now.

    (I make up for it though)

    When you hear the guy complain about not having AC in his car on a hot day and roll your eyes (should be 113° today).

    Please god, stop asking me if I rode today, in this weather. Yes, I know, you are all wusses, you don't need to advertise.

    Just found this thread!

    When your work switched buildings seven years prior and you drove for the first time since the switch, and accidentally drove to the old building instead. Then you went inside and wondered to yourself "Weird -am I just really early today?" before you figured it out.
    Is this where I write something witty?

    Some more:

    When you leave all your work clothes at work and just figure out a way to do your laundry while there.
    When you have to wear your black Sidis to your own brother's wedding because you forgot to bring home your nice black shoes from work and by the time you figured this out, it was too late. And you are a groomsman.

    When you use a cone wrench to eat your lunch, because it is easier than doing the dishes in the breakroom.
    When you have a cone wrench in your office.
    If you even know what a cone wrench is and what it is used for, anymore.

    When you find someone's nicely packaged lunch in the ditch, where it obviously fell off the roof of their car and they forgot it, and you pick up said lunch and bring it with you and eat it later (pad Thai and cookies . Then you eat your own lunch too, because, hey, you're not on a diet - you rode to work!

    When you've been bitten or clawed or chased by animals on your way to or from work - wild animals that aren't pets.

    When you convince the LBS to let you demo an ISM triathlon saddle because you're "thinking about getting into triathlon," but really you just had a vasectomy and are a bit sore.

    When you've been docked a vacation day because you didn't show up for work because THE COMMUTE was better!
    Is this where I write something witty?

    ^^Some good ones there.

    I'm guilty of making the ride just 5 miles longer even if I'll be a little late. I haven't just not shown up though.

    When you spend part of your commute in thinking about how you would explain the need for different bikes to your coworkers. "Well you have different styles of pants. You wouldn't wear the same pants clam digging as you would to church, right? Different bikes have different purposes." (maybe that's just me...I was on the rain bike.)

    When you read the whole thread and the kids keep asking what is so funny!

    When you buy a Fat bike not because you give a rat's tail end about the sport, but because of the handful of commutes you would miss due to snow.

    When you ditch a perfectly good pair of Ortlieb panniers only because they are yellow and everybody has yellow, so you get a different color.

    When your wife-to-be tells you that she grew up in a household without a car, and instead of thinking that's weird, you think how cool!

    When your mother-in-law who is around 70 still goes everywhere by bike, and you just love that fact.

    When your 12 year old car has 22,000 miles on it, and still works perfectly, but you retired a 6 year old bike with 30,000 miles, and it was also working perfectly.

    When your wife will let you spend as much as you want on bikes, because she knows it is keeping you healthy.

    When you can't tell how many bikes you have without going out to look.

    When your kids all learned to ride before their 3rd birthday.

    When you could fully equip at least 2 other riders with the stuff you already have, including bikes and still have enough to spare.

    When you get tested for Life Insurance, and the rep later calls you and says you qualified for the best rate. He then tells you he never had any one do that before, so he asked around and nobody in the entire company had one either.

    Awesome ones there. I put the ones in bold that I totally relate to. At the company Christmas party I got asked how many bikes I own more than a few times and I honestly didn't know the answer off the top of my head.

    When it's icy out and you contemplate riding because you don't want to scrape the car.

    (For the record, I ended up driving out of concern for my safety and not leaving my two boys fatherless...or something like that...)

    When it's icy out and you ride because riding across a frozen lake and through some icy back roads with studs seems safer than hitting a patch of black ice in your car.

    That's a lot more ice than what we have, for sure. But I don't have studs and have a lot more traffic.

    When you consider a different job because the bike commute looks like more fun.
    Plus they have better bike parking and/or showers.
    I'm considering this myself. Less money, but more smiles will make up for it

    When your boss asks you to define “work” and you tell him it’s the eight hours between bike rides...

    When you beat a coworker (who lives in the same neighborhood) across town because you know all the backroads that have no lights...

    When you get tired of explaining the cost of your bikes to people...

    When you can yell loud enough that it’s a suitable substitute for a car horn...

    ...You realize that riding in steel toed workboots and jeans is no different than riding in winter hiking boots and snow pants if you only lace them up to the ankle.

    ...you have a velcro strap on your handlebars to act as a parking brake when you lean your bike up against stuff.

    ...you constantly tell yourself "There is no bad weather only poor clothing and questionable preparation..."

    ...you laugh when people complain about the weather.

    Rough!

    I was thinking that this thread needed a revival.

    ...You ride in a 100 miles charity ride and they ride into work the next day because that is just how you get to work.

    Yup. 5 miles to work makes a good recovery spin...

    You know what sections of your trip to breathe through your nose because this is where the bugs hang out.

    You don’t even try to spit out the gnats anymore just swallow because what’s the point they’re gone.

    Oh man... Not breathing through your mouth because of bugs is tame compared to this... The second half of my bike commute takes place in Manhattan. I have to not breathe in when I pass W 37th St or I inhale what I'm guessing is a sewage vent. I've got it down to where I exhale as I pass that corner.

    I do the same thing by the back side of a factory that uses some high grade solvents or glues. I nearly get high going by that one if I inhale too deeply.

    Every Friday morning is bacon day at a nearby assisted living facility. I ride 6 blocks out of the way, every Friday morning, just so I can smell it!
    Is this where I write something witty?

    When you are track standing for a city bus to make a wide turn when another biker decides not to wait almost hitting the back end of the bus and now you have to pass the bus and the biker. Which you do.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    When you forget to bring your pants with you to work and spend all day in the office wearing your spandex shorts and tights. Happened to me twice.

    When your coworker tells her husband, honey you are driving in the bike lane! (in the snow). He of course replies there are no bikes out here today! Then around the next corner is yours truly pedaling away.

    When you order new work clothes on Amazon and just have them delivered to work, because you aren't going to wear them anyplace else. When you make arrangements to do your laundry at work.

    Tomorrow is going to rain or snow. I'd actually prefer snow since I HATE riding in the rain. Normally, I just wouldn't ride tomorrow, knowing what's coming but I've been waiting for months for a mechanic friend to replace the driver side motor mount in my truck. I would have done it myself but I have no way to support the engine while the mount is out.
    Well, tomorrow is the day and I really don't want to wait any more so Dahon in the 39 degree rain it is. Can't wait.

    I like it.
    When your brand new Denali Duramax Diesel 1 Ton pickup has just over 3600 miles on it in the first year and your bikes have 4400

    New to the forums, but I love this one--I definitely resemble many of these!

    My contribution: when my wife asks how my day was, I answer "it started with a bike ride, and it ended with a bike ride, how could anything else matter?"

    When you get home after dark, in the rain, and your 6 year old leaves a towel outside on the porch so you can dry off.

    ...you walk downstairs in your commuter kit at 5 in the morning only to realize that you left your bike at the office the night before so you could go on a date with your wife after work.

    Time to change.
