What are possible meanings for dreams of bicycles?

Since balance is required to ride a bike, dreaming about riding a bike can relate to personal balance, such as balancing the psyche, balancing logic and feeling, and balancing work and play.

Falling off a bicycle can symbolize being imbalanced in some way by putting too much emphasis on one thing at the expense of another, or allowing part of you to predominate over another, such as when your head overrides your heart, or vice-versa. It can mean your behavior or reaction to something is out of balance.

Bicycles are associated with leg work. They are powered by your effort, so riding a bike can symbolize effort, hustle, and exertion.

Bikes have strong associations with independence and free spirit. They are one-passenger vehicles powered by individual effort.

A tandem bike is a beautiful image of joint effort or partnership.

Falling off a bike, or breaking one, can symbolize inability to complete a task.

Riding ahead of your competition can mean you are getting ahead in life or exceeding expectations.

Riding a bike in a dream can connect with feelings of exuberance and adventure. The symbolism is shown in the movement and action, and your feelings while riding can tell you a lot about what the symbolism means and what it describes about yourself and your life.

To dream that you forget to lock up your bike can indicate you need to protect the fruits of your labor. For example, writers copyright their work to protect it from being misappropriated or stolen. An unlocked bike can mean you have left yourself vulnerable to misfortune or manipulation.

Bicycles are associated with being unable to afford a better ride.

Then again, riding a bike is also associated with getting in shape and saving money. It can symbolize going the extra mile in the name of a good cause, or decision-making that centers on using the best means at your disposal to conserve resources.

Dreaming about a bike you had as a child can symbolize yearning for freedom or simplicity, or inability to fully grow into an adult role or personality. It can symbolize reflecting back on that time of life, or thinking about having children. The latter use of the symbolism grows out of the fact that teaching a child to ride a bike is a landmark occasion for parent and child alike.

Many personal associations with bikes can come into play to create dream symbolism. Think of experiences you’ve had involving bikes and times of life with which they are associated.

If you dream about your bike being stolen but in everyday life you don’t have a bike, begin analyzing by asking yourself if you feel vulnerable. Has it ever actually happened to you? A child finding out that her bike has been stolen is a sad image, and it can connect with thoughts and feelings like “How could a person do that to me?” and “Why was I so trusting?” A dream could use those associations to symbolize personal betrayal or disappointment.

Also, consider the type of bike in the dream and possibilities for how symbolism could be created from details such as a punctured tire, which can mean something has slowed you down or stopped progress, or you feel deflated.

A wheel falling off a bike can symbolize a situation that goes awry or something that breaks down. It’s an especially apt way of symbolizing a leg or foot injury.

Yo I had the weirdest dream in my ENTIRE LIFE

The first thing I remember is driving a motorcycle, it was a KTM Duke 125 for some reason and I had a passenger. The passenger was a friend which I have recently befriended in real life. We drove past my grandpa’s old workshop when the passenger started leaning forward so far that he pushed me forward as well, and somehow I got flung off the bike and flew forwards maybe a hundred meters through the air before hitting a tree.

I then fell on the ground, and I was sure I was dying. Some girls came along and I asked for help, but one kneeled on my chest so I couldn’t breath. I asked her to stop then she became annoyed and left me to die. Then some boys came along, and they sat with me, not saying anything or having any emotion at all while I struggled to call the police.

When they arrived, my mother and grandpa was suddenly there as well. But then I heard someone shout in panic. I looked up, and you won’t believe what I saw.

It was a small VTOL type jet plane which came burning down from the sky. As it was about to crash, it used its VTOL engines to try and fly upwards, but it started flying backwards and up, uncontrollably. It flew into a hangar which doesn’t exist in real life and flew through the roof. Creating a massive explosion and ripping the outer shell of the cockpit off, revealing The Stig from Top Gear as the pilot. The plane then started going down again and headed towards me. The ailerons on the tail fin nearly decapitated me, however the plane was able to start flying upwards again.

And that’s about when I woke up.

A creepy dream I had that had me feeling paranoid all day.

The beginning of the dream was confusing, and though it may sound sexual, it was not at all, but it involved accidentally downloading a virus while looking at porn. A pornstar and a guy trying to sell a kayak came to my house and talked to me while I was in the shower. Then my mom came in my room and saw these two random people, and then she left, as well as those two people. That part of the dream isn’t what creeped me out.

The next part seemed to be part of the same dream, but it felt like someone had flipped the switch from a nonsensical dream about nothing in particular, to a more dark and foreboding dream.

I got out of the shower and the people from the previous part were gone. I hadn’t totally forgotten they were there, but I had stopped thinking about whatever confusing situation had happened.

I walked into my room and the lights were off. I went to turn them on but they had been cut. I tried my lamps and they had been cut off too. None of my lights would turn on. There were also single things missing, as well as things that those two people seemed to have left. A single one of my shoes was missing. But one of the people had also left behind some tanning lotion.

Now that part of the dream still contained elements from the last part, but it transitions into the final part. So my lights have been cut and things are missing. This next part is what left me feeling paranoid.

I go into another room and my family is in there. They tell me that someone was just murdered very close to our house. I look out the window and see two short clowns riding small bikes down our street in the night, honking their horns. That was the end. Really creeped me out. Interpretations?

I fell in love in a dream, she doesn't exist but I still miss her.

This happened 2 months ago but it's still amazingly vivid. She was not what I would normally consider my dream girl (pun inteneded) and yet there she was.

I was going through a major depressive episode at the time. At first realizing it was a dream bummed me out, however the feeling of being THAT in love nearly single handedly brought me out of it. even if it was all fake.

I was living at my grandparents house in rural arkansas as I did a lot throughout my teenage years. However that where the familiarity with the setting ended.

I spent the early part of the day working on my motorcycle (I dont own a motorcycle lol) I was having some problems with the engine(after waking up I realised it was the spark plug). but despite these problem I was intent on riding it. I geared up and set off on a cruise.

After what was both simultaneously hours and seconds I broke down on the side of the road, with a dead phone. A helmeted biker drives up to me and says their brother is a mechanic and can help me out. I accept their offer and they tow me to their house while I ride on the back of their motercycle(how you tow a bike with a bike is a mystery to me).

It was at this point I realised the biker was female while holding onto her. She was wearing biker leathers and a helmet so at first so I hadn't noticed.

She takes me up a nearby "mountain" that I had assumed was miles away but we somehow got there in a few minutes of curvy roads. I meet her brother he takes the bike to the garage and says it will be ready tomorrow. This is when she finally removes her helmet.

She was middle eastern, with soft chestnut brown hair that reached her lower back. Her face is the only thing that is a little blurry but I remember her eyes were a shade of hazel eyes that seemed to both reflect and capture the sun.

Her body was tall and lean, im a little over 6'0 but she was close to my height. About 5'10 if I had to guess. While she was certainly lean she wasn't scrawny. Her hips still found a way to curve into a way that made it near impossible to resist placing my hands. At first glance she looked frail and yet She had am impressive array of muscles. Like a track and field athlete.I wouldn't really describe her as sexy or hot. She was magnetic, elegant, like some kind of desert royalty.

All that to say she was attractive. But love isn't born from the outside. Her personality was amazing. She was tomboyish in nature. Often covered in oil from her bike or cuts from exploring the mountains. And yet she didn't sacrifice all of her femininity. And my god was she funny. Is it narcissistic to laugh in a dream. That's just me laughing at my own jokes. But I digress. We were a good match

I can't remember why but I ended up living with her for a few months. We spent a lot of time working on bike and cars together. Watching movies in her living room. Playing outside. Until eventually it became a romantic relationship. We went on motercycle rides, picnics, and all sorts of dates.

I was so happy that I cant even describe it without feeling like my chest will explode.

We were in the middle of talking, cuddling on the couch just enjoying eachothers company when my alarm went off.

After coming to my senses I felt a heartbreak so real that saying it was a dream doesn't seem possible.

I've never been in any relationship that's worth mentioning. I've never been in love. I'm not sure how close that was to the real thing but I lm very happy and grateful to have experiences even this faux love.

This happened 2 months ago but it's still amazingly vivid. She was not what I would normally consider my dream girl (pun inteneded) and yet there she was.

A middle aged couple murdered me

I just had a dream I was my teenaged self. I was riding my bike along the outskirts of my hometown and I realized I forgot sunscreen, so I was riding back to my car to get some. Then a woman and a man pulled up in their car and told me they had sunscreen if I wanted it and that I was bleeding. I touched my eyebrow and realized I must have scratched myself too hard or something. I was riding my bike back to my car which was nearby, but the couple persisted that I let them give me a ride to it. Finally I gave in. Then I woke up in my car that was now parked in my parents driveway. I went inside and talked to my family but it was weird. I had a strange feeling and I tried to jump up but felt heavy and weighed down. My mom was telling me something (idr what) and I asked “you don’t want me to look into it because I’ll find out that I’m dead, won’t I?” And her face fell and she said “yes…”
Ugh I got a sinking feeling. That couple had murdered me!!! In the dream I couldn’t remember anything beyond getting in their car though.
