'Things only a cyclist would think', surely not , perhaps football fans might think likewise.

Man City fans are quite fond of Kevin De Bruyne I believe, there must be a big bike shed at Maine Rd..

That may be something else only a cyclist would think. Man City moved nearly twenty years ago.

The biggest difference between my thinking and non-cyclists that I notice is the meaning of distance.

I ride my bike 10 miles to work and non-cyclist colleagues think it is an achievement. Cyclist colleagues often have nothing to say about it, but if they do, it is about the bike, the route, or the weather.

Similarly, if I talk about last year's tour, non-cyclists want to know how far (and are impressed when I tell them). Cyclists ask which route I took, or want to know if I found any good camping spots. :lol:
