There is some severe issues occurring locally and I wonder if it is just a local problem or a national issue as well.
Here, there seems to be a large amount of animosity between pure cyclists and triathletes. The local club has decided to ban trial bikes from the group rides which means six of my favorite riding partners will not be joining the rides anymore.
This all stems from ONE person on a tri bike which has some issues shifting while riding in a pace line. Recently this same cyclist CRASHED while riding a road bike.
The cycling club decided to ban TT/Tri bikes despite the local triathletes asking them to handle things on an individual basis.
I just wonder, is this kind of bitterness a universal thing or purely local? I am a little new to the world of cycling. Please tell me how things work at your local cycling club.
