What made you believe I was accusing you of negatively stereotyping lycra clad riders?
I have been reading the thread

Have a look at the large numbers that are out riding - commuters in the inner suburbs, recreation riders on a Sunday with families on the bike paths. I have said all this in an earlier post.
OK but that doesn't address my point, which was that the thread addresses negative lycra stereotyping
If you see it that way you are misreading the issue completely

Perhaps it was, If so it was a point that needed to be made. Personally I am sick of reading negative bias from a particular poster, about Lycra and what it supposedly says about those who wear it.
This bit then appears to say that those who don't wear Lycra have been commented on negatively so it counteracts the negative comments by 909.
Yet I am misreading the issue?

Remember the continuous references to POBSOs, riders with 'beards and long socks'?? Let he who is without sin.....
