My Girlfriend left because I bike too much and didn't have enough time to keep up with our long distance relationship. 😔

It is times like this when it is best to remember some of the reasons why bikes are better than women.
  • Your bike won't sulk if you don't pay attention to it
  • Your bike won't get mad if you ride another bike
  • Your bike won't ask if the tires make it look fat
  • Your bike can kill you quick, a women will take her time

Sure, blame it on the bike. Last time I checked that kind of relationship involved 2 people. You had choices, she had choices.

Life is about balance. I’m a husband, father, grandfather and I work a demanding job and will toss in home owner too. Sometimes these things cause compromise to make it work. I do make it work. Sometimes time I would like to spend time on the bike gets replaced with short intense sessions with just enough long rides in to have me about as fit as I can get. While I do race I prefer to train more than racing, It’s living my life like that that has gotten me thru 34 years of marriage and maintaining being a cyclist.

Long distance relationship? I hate to say it, but "you ride too much" is code for "I'm seeing somebody else".

Sorry to hear that. We have all lost girlfriends we liked. Go out with your mates and be distracted.

Then get a different one.

Keep your bike in the bedroom and turbo in the living room to ensure that expectations are right.

One will stick.
