We all have people who criticize us for commuting by bike, but what about those friends and relatives who just rag on you for riding your bike- as if it somehow takes away from important things? I'm a grown woman and my father chews me out for riding a bike because I'm job hunting. It doesn't take away from anything! Don't you hate that you feel like you have to explain or justify riding a bike? I don't rag on other people for what they do! Gee....would it be better if I sat around boozing?
