I cycle with my local cycling club and run with my local running club (cycling I like, running is just convenient exercise ), I'm not really a club person, but tha gathering allow me to muse on the similarities and differences of each sports enthusiasts. Certainly both camps are fanatical about their sport, their performance, nutrition etc. Cyclist are much more interested in 'kit' cos they have more and runners seem more concerned with orthotics and pronation. But, the big difference is that the runners just seem soooo much more intense, really intense and serious all the time. The cyclist are also very focused but in a different, less intense way and when not pedalling are a much more diverse, joyous, noisy and animated bunch. Runners seem more introverted and the cyclist more extrovert. Does anybody else notice this or is it simply a quirk of my local clubs?
