Based on this limited, anecdotal evidence I would say that it is only cyclists who act like this. I can't be wrong drawing this conclusion because anecdotal evidence is but highest form of evidence you can get according to many pro - helmet cyclists. That means they have to accept my conclusion as fact!
No, not just cyclists. Every group of people I've ever interacted with that was large and diverse had some members who put on airs and thought they were better than everyone else, some members who were nice, and helpful, brought the sandwiches and made the tea sorts, some members who were jerks, some who were gossips, and lots of people who were absolutely fine, enjoyed themselves and didn't judge others.
That includes, parents at school, football clubs, university classes/majors, work colleagues, bands, choirs, orchestras, cycling clubs, train clubs, riding clubs, swimming clubs, reenactment groups, theatre groups, tour groups, stategy game clubs, people staying in a youth hostel at the same time, people attending conventions...
