Re: Are MBs the Beverly Hillbillies of bicycledom?
Dirt Road Cowboy, you must have encountered Road Bike Snobs. There are lots of road cyclists that are friendly and pleasant, especially middle aged folks who ride in social groups and touring events. Road racers are jocks, and like other jocks, some just don't talk to anybody who is not part of their subculture. The global warming hipsters don't like MaBs either. They make the skunk face and ignore you like you wore the wrong band t-shirt to their hole-in-the-wall bar no one is supposed to know about lol.
I have loved road cycling and racing since I was young, but it is just a fact, that bike snobs exist, and road bike snobs are the snobbiest.
