well, i think cyclists as a whole are the nicest, most friendly and generally good people of about any group of people.

sure, maybe i'm biased b/c im a cyclist, but in all the other 'groups' of simliar people i've ever been in, i have not experienced as much good.

most cyclists will stop and help other cyclists, pedestrains, motorists when motorists speed by with their windows up...

or maybe it's just b/c most cyclists are also pedestrains, car drivers, etc. when others are not also cyclists...

and when not cycling, i am often surprised when i meet someone really great and mabye half the time later i find out he or she's a cyclist too...

the snobbery of cycling is small and i think less than in most other sports or hobbies (uh, golf, skiing, cars, etc)
