I ride my bicycle for fitness and for entertainment. In addition to riding around my home area in South Carolina, I ride longer distances and in areas to tour and see the local sights. I often stay in hotels, purchase meals and supplies, visit local attractions, and so on - generally spending between $100 and $200 a day. I also set up trips, and influence local clubs and groups that set up trips for groups. Given the treatment of this bicycle rider, and the nonsensical tone of this editorial "response", I have no problem taking my bicycle trips and money elsewhere.
