|I seem to notice that cyclists seem to share other common interests. Photography is the most common. Here's my personal list, feel free to add, subtract, agree or disagree as fits you...
Drive AWD station wagon (Subie WRX)

|you do duck?||Steve_0|
Sep 26, 2003 11:26 AM
|duck's my favorite. What flyway do you live in?
I'm in the atlantic; Plenty of resident black/mallards/divers. Migrating woodies, teal, pins. Some occassional strange due to a major wildlife refuge nearby.
Sep 26, 2003 12:18 PM
|flyway in Memphis. I just moved from Atlanta and I'm anxious to get back into the woods. I didn't get to hunt much over there and my lab turned into a city dog/pet.
Went to the local DU banquet last night. Good stuff, but missed out on the Super Black Eagle raffle.
I've always wanted to really hunt in the Atlantic. Beautiful ducks there that are rare here (black and canvasback mainly). We are mostly mallards and woodies in the woods and gadwall, pintail and everything else in the rice fields. Do you hunt tidal basins? Rivers?
|Agree, in part, disagree, in part . . .||ms|
Sep 26, 2003 11:25 AM
|Cycling -- agree, but that is a given if one is posting here
Photography -- not an interest of mine, but given the pics that are posted here regularly (which I enjoy), you may have a point
Music (musician) -- does five years of forced piano lessons, but inability to play anything (never practiced) count? I like to listen to classical music, but I don't think that anyone ever would want to listen to any music that I attempted to make.
Gourmet cooking -- I like to cook, but I don't know if I would call it "gourmet." I think that cyclists fall into two polar extremes when it comes to food -- those who love food (the ride to eat crowd) and those who see food only as fuel to ride (the eat to ride crowd). I fall into the ride to eat crowd.
Left-handed -- I'm right handed.
Drive AWD station wagon (Subie WRX)-- No, I drive an ancient Honda (or my wife's Mercury Sable wagon).
SOME TRAITS/INTERESTS THAT I WOULD ADD
Lack of competence at stick and ball sports.
(Male Cyclists) Upper body physique of a ten-year old girl.
Knowledge of obscure country roads.
Addiction to the Weather Channel.
Better knowledge of the geography of France than your own country.

drive an AWD orange toaster oven with really great stereo
I consider family a way of life and work a way of facilitating life & interests; neither are on my list of "interests". "fitness" would be on the "way of life" list, though it may be termed "suffering" with "relative fitness" as a pleasant side effect.

Travel. Especially overseas.
Music. I play several instruments, some of them pretty well. I rock and roll with my buddies. I'm an audiophile.
Photography. I was once deep, deep into it. Now not so much.
I'm a fairly good cook, but my wife's much better. I'm certainly dedicated to gourmet eating.
Drive a German sports sedan.
I have a propensity for mimicking Phil Ligget.

|am also a lefty...hmmm, looks like there is a strong trend here as only about 12% of people in general are left handed, would be really interesting to know if cyclists in general really do tend towards left-handedness...anybody know??. I'm currently reading two books on left-handedness (mainly because current GF is also lefthanded (and a cyclist), we have MANY common traits, and I think that is partly due to both being left-handed), but cycling has not come up yet..|

|Cycling, suffering, and health.
Photography. Amazing how much bike stuff I bought when selling off camera equipment.
Music: Piano. Classical Guitar. Voracious listener to anything different: Reggae, New Order, Old Jazz, Afro.
Cooking: Classically trained Chef de Cuisine and Sommelier. Professional until 28, then retired to go to business school. Much more time(and money) for cycling with job as a government accountant.
Left handed: We're the ones in our right mind.
Drive: 10 years without a car, recently got engaged to a Cavalier. I will upgrade her to an Outback ASAP. With bike racks.
