Why worry about how bicycling is portrayed in the media? Do you think it could possibly be worse? Besides, most people who do not ride probably think the guy is going the right way!
Complain if you want, but I doubt if any media types check with BikeForums before they print something about cycling. Let's enjoy our sport/hobby/passion without worrying so much about perceptions. Besides not having anything to do with this thread, it is also something we can do nothing about - we have absolutely no control over how media writers choose to portray us.
Whether it forces me to ride there or not, I am likely to ride there anyway because it is kind of scary riding that stretch now with cars passing close by at 50-60 mph. I have been commuting on that stretch for about 4 years, and I usually hammer to get through it as quickly as possible.
