To dream about cycling on a straight path suggests that you are on a very specific journey at present. You know where you are headed and you are focused on that destination. You won’t let anything get in your way.

Consider what the surface was like that you were cycling on. If it was smooth, perhaps life is treating you well lately. With that said, if it was rocky and bumpy, then you may be experiencing a rough patch. It won’t always be like this so don't feel defeated. Eventually the road will level out again. 

Try to remember what environment you were cycling in. A city could indicate a need to make more effort in your working or social life. Following on from this, if there were lots of other people cycling along with you, does your personal life need a boost?

On the other hand, if you were in the countryside, it might be wise to escape from the hustle and bustle to recalibrate. 

Along the same vein, if you were cycling alone, then you may need to take some time for yourself if you have been devoting much of your energy to other people lately. 

Think about the phrase ‘vicious cycle’- are you stuck in a rut of the same thing every day and feel you can’t break free? If so, that could be why you dreamed about cycling. 

If you were cycling fast to take over someone else, perhaps you are trying to unnecessarily compete with a person in your waking hours. The rivalry is all in your head and you need to concentrate on your own triumphs within their rightful context rather than focusing on how your wins (and losses) compare to other people’s. 

Cycling is a healthy form of transport, so it’s possible that you need to find better ways to get around in your waking life. If you always drive somewhere when you could be walking or getting on your bike, this is a positive change to make if you can. 

One needs to straddle a bike if riding it, so if you had both feet in the correct position, and could maintain your balance, you may have a good grasp of life at the moment. However, if you had one foot on the floor, you aren’t quite ready for something yet. Everything is in place, but you are hesitant to begin. What is stopping you?

Similarly, if you were wobbling about while cycling, even if the terrain was flat, you may be struggling to get to grips with something. The dream could be telling you to persevere- no one gets it right the first time, so keep going and soon it will become second nature. 

Cycling fast down a hill implies that you are a risk taker and are doing something unsafe in your waking hours right now. Be careful, while it might seem like fun and a good idea on paper, in reality, there is a good chance you could get hurt. Who are you really doing it for? If it’s to impress other people, then forget it- your safety is more important.
