A dating website shaped around people who cycle/cycle to work meeting like-minded people? You don't have to be looking for love, you could be just wanting to meet new people and make new friends or a bit of fun :twisted:

Would it work? Seriously, I've seen worse...

    You haven't got an option for 'Sorry no. I don't define my life by my mode of transport'.

    There's no "Yes, I think it would work, but I'm perfectly happy as I am" or "No, it won't work, but I'd like it to" options.

    Nah it's not the same. I'm talking about women who "gets a jones on" for Bianchi's in the same way I do...

    There you go, it takes a special kind of man/woman to understand what you really mean.

    Do cycling dating site have their own set of abbreviations:

    mhob - must have own bike
    gsob - good sense of balance

    Saw a sign on a restaurant that said Breakfast, any time -- so I ordered French Toast in the Renaissance.

    But this wouldn't separate the deviants (fixers/SSers) from the perverts (CXers) from the cavemen (MTBers) from the uber-cool cyclists (roadies) :P . You'd need sub-categories.

    And if couples hook up, they could ditch their bikes and ceremonially tie the cycling knot by buying a tandem.

    What chat up lines do people use to other cyclists? "Hello, darling, want to see my oversize tubing?"

    It's just a hill. Get over it.

    "You sure do work your bottom bracket, do you find it needs regular oiling?"

    "The pressure in my tube seems to be low, do you mind helping me out?"

    "Do you know where your tolberone slot is?" - Got that one from Greg T

    "Let's swap bikes" - Then sniff her saddle. Sure fire way to show your intent, Man style.
