    See the poll...

    I can drive a forklift, but I don't think that counts ;)

  • both




  • Cyclist, motorcyclist, tractor, car, bus and truck driver! :)




  • Just a cyclist.




  • Yes, in one word.

    But how is it defined being a motorist? Is driving once per week / per month enough to be a motorist?




  • I have a CSO in my driveway. Guess that makes me a motorist so.

  • Yes.




  • When I'm on my bike I think of myself as a cyclist and when I'm driving a car I think of myself as a cyclist in a car.




  • I'm just a cyclist/occasional jogger.




  • Cyclist for the moment but passed the Driver Theory Test last week so I aim on being both shortly.




  • Drive when I have to, cycle because I want to.

    Haven't sat behind a wheel in almost 7 months now, it's like riding a bike, no?




  • I drive under 500km per year (which is much less than I cycle; probably less than I walk too) and I don't own a car, but I assume I'm a motorist for the purposes of this poll.




  • I could still drive 300 miles in a week. I hate to say it, but I spend more time in a car seat then the saddle of a bike.




  • I don't own a car now and I haven't since I came to Ireland so that makes me a cyclist only.

    when I move to the US in September I'll have to start driving again probably which makes me sad.




  • Once you start driving you will put on weight and become lazier with the bike.




  • I am an arrogant motorist who berates cyclists two days a week...

    ...and a self-righteous cyclist who (internally) berates motorists three days a week..

  • Bike is for commuting, car is for everything else. I don't have the discipline to take the bike out to do a 20 minute journey when the car is right there. Mileage works out about 50/50 - 5000km/year on each.




  • Cyclist and motorist. Enjoy both! Couldn't live without the car, wouldn't like to live without the bike!

    When I drive like I cycle, I crash.

    Although when I cycle like I cycle, I crash too.

    Basically just stay the hell away from me whatever I'm in/on.

    You should have told me that before I got into a car with you.

    And all the other stuff too.




  • Driver and cyclist here. Despite being obsessed with cars from an early age, increasingly when I am driving and and see a cyclist, I feel envious and wish I was on the bike too.

    The complete opposite happened to me, I put the bike in the car and go where ever I feel.




  • 200bhp + club, baby.

    That's nowhere near as impressive these days as it used to be :(
