As you might know I am a stealth commuter. Especially as I near the office. My clothes,shoes, and bag are all geared so within minutes I look like all the other workers who drove or bused or walked to work.
Yesterday evening as I was walking out of my office complex I fell in step with a client, an successful insurance businessman of Asian origin. We exchanged pleasantries.
He asked if i was still riding my bike. I proudly confirmed and said even today.
I was dressed is office slacks and button down shirt, leather shoes and carrying a briefcase.
He said I was crazy so I asked why?
He replied " Well that is why they made cars."
I couldn't believe my ears.
I retorted that the side effects of cars is global warming, pollution, congestion, ill health, etc.
He agreed but I don't think I converted him.
