"It just seems (women) aren't as excited about the fact that I don't own a car, and don't want to own a car, as I am," Becker wrote on Bikeforums.net, asking other bikers for advice.

I cut off cars, pregnant women, kids, and the elderly every day when I bike to work, and when they give me crap about it, I say, post on bikeforums about it, where I might actually give a d**n.

Ahh I'm just kidding.

Andy's luck seems to be changing: Getting girls?

I really thought is was a troll or a scam or something when I got the PM from the AP columnist. Everything checked-out, so I did the interview. Since he said he was interviewing 10 or more people for the piece, I never expected to be in it, let along in the first paragraph.
