Even when the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome was opened and its track tested by the great man himself, I was unmoved.
But after queuing for more than an hour at the Bike Store in Glasgow to buy our son a bike, I am a convert.
The guy who finally served us said this was nothing unusual and that Scotland is going bike crazy – and that's two years before the games start!
Looks like I was wrong, so here's to a bright sporting future in the wake of what I hope will be a super sporting event.

I READ with disgust in the Evening Times about Glasgow City Council charging OAPs for emergency alarms (October 8).
I am sick to the back teeth of this constant OAP bashing.
What else can we expect?
Shame on the lot of you at George Square.
HOW can Glasgow City Council spend millions of pounds on the Commonwealth Games, then say that due to ongoing financial pressure they will have to charge OAPs for emergency alarms?
A bill of £3 a week or £156 a year might not sound a lot to the council big wigs, so maybe they can take a pay cut to pay for this service. They probably spend more on lunch and don't bat an eye.
YOUR Memories picture of Crookston Cottage Homes on October 1 made we wonder where the money from the sale of the site went?
I remember when this was about to happen, in the 1980s, being told by a councillor that the area would benefit and be improved by this sale.
Since then, I have waited in vain.
I believe the local children's park was upgraded but that was all.
Perhaps someone could enlighten me as to where all the cash went.
