Ummmm... what is unreasonable about his response? We have a different perspective, but from his perspective it seems pretty reasonable. Before I started commuting, I probably would have said the same thing. I see him as looking at the practical disadvantages of cycling, and doesn't have enough desire to try to overcome them.
