TO THE EDITOR, Sin, —These few lines are written not with the intention of justifying the action of the local cycling clubs with respect to their affiliation to the League of New Zealand Wheelman, but with the idea of endeavoring to show those cyclists who talk of resigniog from the clubs the absurdity of such a step. These members talk of resigning because the clubs, tired of the hypocrisy and deceit practised by out so-called amateur riders, have decided to do away with the open order system, and compel them to race either as pure amateurs or as cash amateurs. Also, these members are resigning because the local clubs have fallen in with the times by bringing themselves into touch and placing themselves in the same position as all the great cycling clubs throughout Great Britain and Australia. It is evident that these members have not given the question much consideration, especially when they see so many other members who have worked for the clubs for years doing their utmost to bring about this change.—l am, etc., ■ True Amateur. • Dunedin, November 11.
