    Is a clydesdale considered....

    ...to be a cyclist who is the right weight for his or her height, or a cyclist who is both the right weight for his or her height & over weight regardless of height?

    If a clydesdale is a both I am right there with you at 5' 11", 290 pounds. So what do I get for being part of the "club"

    The separation has more to do with racing then anything, as a larger rider can put some undue force on a smaller rider. A 145# espoirs does not want to get into a shoulder rubbing contest with a 270# clydsdale at speed. Since you ride a 'bent, rubbing shoulders is moot.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    At present, Im 205, and will prolly get to about 185 by springtime. But at 185, I'm only 2 weeks, a case of beer, and a dozen tainted doughnuts from 200 so I will always be a Clyde regardless of weight. After all, they call me Da-HOSS!

    Welcome!

    As part of 'The Club', you might just get a Clyde jersey. I think someone here is designing one.

    Maybe I can't rub shoulders since I am on a bent too, but It sure makes shoving a stick in your spokes alot easier
