Bicycle commuting — healthy, green and dangerous

River Laker is “Carless Brit,” an advocate for cycling as a way of life. Unfortunately, he’s had a lot of run-ins with nasty drivers who find cyclists on “their” roads offensive. So he decided to hit a gun show (first time, obviously) and shop for protection. Like the Brit, I have been run off the road or shouted at by drivers while on my bike. One time, two — um, fellows — yanked me off on purpose. I don’t condone shooting at careless drivers, but getting exercise, reducing pollution and enjoying fresh air shouldn’t be dangerous, either.
