Bookmark to: StumbleUpon Bookmark to: Facebook DREAM INTERPRETATION : This dream dictionary is based upon hundreds of real dreams and has been meticulously researched. However, the only person who can truly identify the cause of a dream is the dreamer. Use the questions and quotes on this page to help you find out what has triggered your dream.

BIKE : Bikes may show that you feel isolated and that life is hard right now. Bikes can be associated with bad days especially on the day before the dream. But bikes are also symbolic of your own attitude and how you want to go to great lengths to pursue your goals. Bikes may also suggest that you are trying to do things "your own way".

QUESTIONS to help you make associations(pick the one that makes most sense to you)
- Did you feel as if you had to do everything yourself yesterday?
- Do you feel isolated?
- Are you doing exactly what you want to do?

KEY WORDS : Isolated, hard work, doing it my own way

KEY PHRASES(Pick a quote which captures your feelings right now. Think especially of the day before the dream) :
- "its been really HARD WORK "
- "doing it my OWN WAY"
- "doing what I want to do"
- "having to carry on ON MY OWN"

Below you will see a series of quotes. Each quote represents the meaning of a particular dream(these are all dreams where the meaning is understood totally). For instance one dream may have meant that the dreamer was having trouble at work. In that case the quote may simply be "There is a bad atmosphere at work". Some information is included about which dream symbols were included in the dream(within the squares brackets). Often a sample dream is included which shows you how the dream interpretation was reached.
DREAM ANALYSIS : What is the symbolic meaning of bikes in dreams?

Bikes are by their very nature designed for just one person. So they tend to link to feelings where you feel either isolated and having to forge through on your own. On the other hand they can symbolise moments when you tend to do things your own way.

Bikes can be asociated with bad days and hard times. They show you feeling isolated. E.g.

"I had a really bad day yesterday. Everything that I wanted to achieve seemed so much like HARD WORK"[Dream interpretation - felt as if bike punctured][the dream on which this quote is based is featured in full at the end of this article]

"I felt really ISOLATED. She just really made a big point about it. It was a long struggle that day"[Dream interpretation - bike punctured]

"I seem increasingly ISOLATED at work. Its always such a struggle to get along and the job drains me anyway"[Dream interpretation - bike]

"My old club has closed down and now I feel we are all going our own separate ways. I have not found anything to truly replace this part of my life yet"[Dream symbol - bike]

"My therapist is very ill right now so I am going to have tom continue my therapy on my own"[Dream interpretation - bike]

Sometimes the bike may symbolise how you go to great lengths to do things your own way. E.g.

"I think he was criticising me for being arrogant and doing things in MY OWN WAY."[Dream interpretation - bike]

Bikes may also show you trying to pursue your own goals and trying to do what you want to do. E.g.

"I wanted to create some time for me and my husband but the day was so busy. It was a special occasion my birthday but we had no time to celebrate it together".[Dream interpretation - ride bikes with husband towards ferry]
DREAM TIP : Try to think of dream symbols as words. Think of bikes in dreams as representing the phrase "feeling isolated" or "doing things my own way" or "having to carry on alone". Then try to write down a few quotes which capture all major issues and in particular things that took place the day before. Think of quotes like "No one seems interested in the neighbourhood watch scheme I have been trying to get started", or "I seem to be getting on better with my brother since he started college", or "I am wondering how to write my report at work". Now read through those quotes again and see which could link to the phrases "feeling isolated" or "doing things my own way". Follow the same process with other symbols then if one issue seems to have plenty of connections then its likely that dream links to that.
THE DREAM - I was riding a bike. There was snow on the ground (although it’s spring in reality!). By the road there was white snow but everywhere else it was mixed with the mud. I was in a hurry going in to the store to buy some groceries. I have no idea why I was in such hurry, but I was. My bike wasn’t in quite good shape and I think its because I had a flat tyre. I had some groceries with me. And one of my shopping bags fell off my bike. I stop to pick it up but the groceries were all around. There was a big bottle of beer and it was broken. I start taking the glass and putting it away so someone wouldn’t get hurt. I must mention that no one in my family drink beer. And I saw a bottle of water( also from my bag)that was of foreign manufacture - “EVIAN” water. It’s quite good taste but it is expensive also. So I didn’t know what I was carrying until it all felt of my bike? And the dominate feeling was that I could do nothing right even the simple things. I also felt that if I wanted the sun to shine then it would start raining.

THE REALITY The day before the dream the dreamer had a really bad day. She felt as if she shouldn't have got out of bed.

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "Yesterday was a really bad day for me. I felt as if it was an uphill struggle all day. I simply felt I should not have got out of bed!"

THE INTERPRETATION The link between dreams and the day before is quite strong. Often dreams will capture our response to something that happened. The dreamer had a very bad day the previous day. The dream perfectly captures her feelings from that day.

Bikes are a form of transport only designed for one. they capture moments when we are isolated or are struggling on our own. Here it perfectly captures her feelings of personal difficulties during that day. The flat tyre is especially symbolic of delays and a sense of inability to achieve what we want to achieve. Often dreams will capture such feelings from the day before. Occasionally we get days when we feel everything that could go wrong does go wrong. That sense is perfectly captured here. Snow is often linked to delays and problems. It shows we are unable to do what we wish to do.

Symbolic Meanings
BIKE : "feeling isolated and without support"
BUY : "try to achieve the things that you want - but often cannot get"
EXPENSIVE : "difficult to achieve"
FLAT TYRE : "a deflated feeling - linked to the day before"
GROCERIES : "the things you need in life"
ROAD : "events in real life as they bump into you and impact on your thoughts"
SHOPPING : "desperately wanting something"
SNOW : "a lack of real momentum - a very bad day which no progress seems to be made"
