What To Know When You Date A Cyclist 

How to date a cyclist

A garage is for bikes, not for cars

Forget what you thought you knew about garages. A cyclist’s garage is stuffed full of cycling paraphernalia to support their passion for adventure. A trip to the garage will mean navigating your way through miles of inner tubing, a variety of bike frames, and spare wheels dotted here and there.

July = Le Tour de France 

Put on hold all of your plans for July. When the tour hits, life is all about the tour. Didn’t think it was possible to get so excited and charged with energy whilst watching the TV? In no other event will its spectators (even those sitting at home) be fuelled with energy and passion whilst watching those gruelling hill climbs and swift downward sprints.

Just what is ‘bagging the peak’?

The extreme cyclist’s vocabulary is peppered with cryptic phrases. Better start googling bunny hop, squirrel and wheelsucker. Oh, and if you don’t know anything about hydration tablets and camelbacks, you will soon. Essential for any extreme-sports fan.

Love the lycra 

Because nothing else will do. Comfortable, sweat-wicking… the mark of a true extreme cyclist. If you have a downhill biker on your hands then prepare for helmets, knee guards, wrist guards and maybe the odd A&E trip.

Are you Betty or are you Bob? 

An essential part of a cyclist’s vocabulary. Bob is the boyfriend of an extreme ride, Betty is the girlfriend. You are more Maverick than you thought.

Weekends will never be the same again

If Sunday is sunny you won’t see them until dark. A casual bike ride from one side of the country to the other IS exciting; look interested.


… is a key part of a cyclist’s psyche. Commitment to adventure, adrenaline and a love of speed makes them go back again and again and again…
