I've seen that before. A lot of bike clubs don't like members to ride tri-bikes on the group rides either. The usual reason is the aero bar setup on a tri-bike. Your hands are grouped together on the center of the bike instead of out to the sides on the drop bars of a standard bike which makes the bikes a bit "twitchier" to steer, since you are essentially steering with your elbows. Also, the aero bars have no brakes, so it takes an extra second to pull your hands from the bars and move them to the brake levers. When you're riding in close proxmity to other riders of varying skill levels, the "collision factor" risk greatly increases.

Strange Rules. Seems like they would want to encourage participation not discourage it. I guess you're just too fast on your tri-bike. Speedy guys like you should push a fat-tire mountain bike.
