A Bicyclist Does Not an Anarchist Make

"Two-Wheelin' Down the Highway" (March 15) presents an interesting look at bikeways, past and future, but the first sentence seems to indicate some rather biased thinking.

Apparently bicycle fanatics, those of us who believe in energy-efficient, nonpolluting, healthy means of transport, are "anarchists, rosy-cheeked environmentalists, punk couriers, thrill seekers."

Conversely, I suppose, those who spend inordinate amounts of their lives paying for or driving their autos, almost surgically attached to their internal combustion engines, slaves to Big Oil and Big Auto, must be fine upstanding citizens and normal, fully functional people.
