“OCD—Obsessive Cycling Disorder”

"OCD—Obsessive Cycling Disorder”—a cycling pun on “obsessive–compulsive disorder”—has been printed on many images. “Uncle Gigs.....suffering from OCD (Obsessive Cycling Disorder)” was posted on the newsgroup Gears 4 Beers on October 24, 2009. “Definite OCD (Obsessive Cycling Disorder)” was posted on Twitter on May 31, 2010.

Wikipedia: Obsessive-compulsive disorder
Obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental disorder where people feel the need to check things repeatedly, perform certain routines repeatedly (called “rituals"), or have certain thoughts repeatedly. People are unable to control either the thoughts or the activities for more than a short period of time. Common activities include hand washing, counting of things, and checking to see if a door is locked. Some may have difficulty throwing things out. These activities occur to such a degree that the person’s daily life is negatively affected. Often they take up more than an hour a day. Most adults realize that the behaviors do not make sense.

My Life With OCD (Obsessive Cycling Disorder)
It’s about 07:00 on a Tuesday morning, I am sat in my home office and I have a heap of work to trawl through but I get that all too familiar feeling… It’s an urge, one I cannot explain. It’s like a yearning, a lack of fulfillment, it’s in the bones and it just won’t go away.
