I can't say I know of anyone else who has this problem and to be honest, I find it quite unusual but each to their own. For me, I think it's actually improved my relationships with other people. I can't speak for partner relationships because I'm single but it gets me out of the house, it keeps me fit and it gets me about so all in all, it's pretty much all positive for me personally.
Yes, Troy, cycling can definitely ruin relationships when it becomes THE priority. My boyfriend did fine up north alone, but when he came down to Florida to be with me in the winter he joined a cycling group. I actually was the one who found the group for him so he would be happy. Little did I know. ...He was blown away by the workout he was getting and the comradery and I eventually lost him. We were in the beginning of our relationship so it should have been the honeymoon stage but he eats, breathes, and sleeps cycling. You must make your mate feel like he or she is the most important thing in your life. I have literally tried everything to get my boyfriend back and I'm tired of walking around with my stomach in knots because the man I love is in love with his bike. Oh, and I can't cycle due to a health issue but I can go for walks and he won't do that, he said he just doesn't like walking.Im interested to know who if any are so addicted to cycking that its ruined there relationshipswith some people. I started to have this problem then I had to exercise control since I have a family, wife and kid.
