Roadies appear to spend a lot of time and money having their wheels trued.
I think they are jealous we can batter through potholes and the like and suffer no damage
Personally i always nod or smile at a fellow bikee
if they dont want to smile/wave/nod/etc no biggie,though that does make me feel somewhat smug.Dont know why just does
Let us not forget they bore the brunt and still do for every lycra joke ever written.
TBH its that their sport is all about fitness and times and i think it makes them too serious,they are just grumpy
Do we get pissed when someone walking on the street doesnt say hello or wave? Or when other bus users ignore us? No. SO why should we feel compelled to acknowledge other cyclists?
Special club,joint interest,its was separates us from the general populous.
Take sailing.We always acknowledge other sailors and boaters we pass doing our thing.
Is that so hard to understand.
