Obviously, I'm no better than Dave Moulton's when I sink to his level of name-calling by noting that there is obviously another splinter group: SOBs, Snobs On Bicycles.
Sadly, there are competing groups of SOBs. I have often noted that cyclists are the most disparate group I've ever been associatated with.
Dave Moulton: "I get tired of my reputation being tarnished by another group who should not even be categorized as cyclists."
Tough cookies, dude. Deal with it.
I take it that Moulton considers himself a real cyclist.
Bully for him!
Everyone who rides a bike is a cyclist. That's what the word "cyclist" means, notwithstanding the attempts of a few elitists to try and reserve the word for only people who ride like they do. Other cyclists may be bad cyclists, or dangerous cyclists, or poor cyclists - but they are still cyclists.
