More women cyclists are needed
Oh how sweet. You still think of them as the gentler sex, do you?

Do they pass the time of day or say hello? No - the leader of the pack just says "why aren't you wearing a helmet" as does another rider "yea, why aren't you wearing a helmet". Friendly lot aren't they
one near the back suggested "get on the back"

Now I accept that the members here mostly present themselves either a dedicated campaigner or a grizzled old timer happily living in their own heyday ( no objections to that, its also me), so I should not expect the thoughts of a bunch of sportive bashers, but sometimes this place comes across as a hot bed of hypocracy. Are we welcoming to allxyclusts or not?
If yes, don't whinge.
If no be honest.
I'm honest. I don't condemn other riders but I don't care a monkeys about urban campaigning or recruitment to the cause.
There are idiots the world over. Some ride bikes. Some go too fast, some go too slow! Accept them all or be honest.
Where are these rude clubs? Never met any. The only problem I ever meet is uninformed novice's and wannabes who can't ride 2 wide. If they had come through the club system properly they would rather than riding as the internet tells them.
