They do the same races over and over again, does that make racing reenactment? The people that started calling radonneuring that should know better. Although some of them are just snide, horrible people, pretty much.

If you ever went to an Ohio Randonneurs event, you would find out how wrong you are. Although you have to get up fairly early for that.
I'd call wearing wool knickers reenactment, along with the use of square bags trimmed in leather on pizza racks. and Using era specific bikes and era looking head lamps reenactment. It also comes across as projecting an image of how they wish people to see them.

but this is why I asked the Question, I wasn't sure if that was a minority, or majority.
