Letters: Get off that high Schwinn, cyclist
Re: ‘Cyclists are the most selfless humans’ (Metro, Jan. 23)
The angry, uneducated rant putting entertainingly misguided insults on “selfish people … too lazy to bike” called to raise the cost of public transport and, in turn, fares for many — some of whom are incapable of riding bikes or commuting many miles in varying weather. Get off that high horse (or Schwinn); after all, you wouldn’t have your beloved bikes without our “machines of laziness” to manufacture, deliver, sell and repair them. You, sir, may not be lawless, but you are clueless.

When letter writer Milton Katzis isn’t cycling or walking on water, he should realize that if the state wants to raise money, rather than a “pollution tax” on drivers, it should start citing cyclists who ignore the laws of the road, running red lights, riding on the sidewalk, etc. We could balance the budget in no time.
