    I think this post belongs here rather than were the angry people live, as I am not passing a judgement or expressing an opinion.

    Does anyone on here with a religious faith go for club-runs on a Sunday and if so how do they square it up with the big entity or, conversely, does anyone with faith not do Sunday club-runs?

    I'm religiously atheist, but I'd have thought that the idea of havnig a special sabbath or whatever one likes to call it is one of the more obviously "man'-made" constructs? Each to his own, anyway; my parents were a bit religious, and it seemed to help them through life a bit, just not for me! :biggrin: I cycle past some churches often on a sunday... always seems plenty of peeps there.

    Hello ,I go to church and go cycling on some sundays.It is not a problem.There is nothing to square up with anyone.I have also just made a very big decision to leave my church that i have attended for 21 years.And start going to another .And all of our mates have wished us well for the future.

    I suppose there would be no problem if your faith does not strictly forbid cycling (or what it may represent) on a day of rest or worship.

    is the church that far away or is it known to house axe murderers?:biggrin:

    Neither, I suspect. After attending the same church for 21 years, you're bound to get to know the other members. It'd be bad manners not to wish him well when he decided to leave.

    I don't cycle with a club, mainly because all the major club runs for clubs round here are on Sunday mornings. With my family I personally think it is more important to go to church on Sunday than ride. Occasionally however I do the odd one off ride on a sunday

    No one from my local Mosque cycles. They even have a sign in the door banning people from bringing their bikes inside :biggrin:

    I've been known to shout "Jesus Christ!!!" when some moron in a car hurtles past on a Sunday morning 3 inches away from my elbow but that's about as far as it goes.

    Same here. I leave my steed tied to the railings outside. Serves me right for trying to put the 'fun' back into 'fundamentalism' and the 'laugh' back into...er...'slaughter'? :tongue::biggrin:
