I was Heckled by Anarchists

Sure, people shout at me all the time from their cars as I stubbornly cycle along their roads. I’m used to it, and I’m not too proud to admit that at least some of the time it’s for something I’ve actually done wrong. But then there was the summer the anarchists were in town for their international convention, and as if that weren’t already oxymoronic enough, the group I encountered were crowded into an old gas-guzzler chugging along Harbord when one leaned out of his window with a broad smile and shouted: “Hey, get a load of Mr. Appropriate Technology!”

  1. If you're not doing anything wrong, then they are another A-word, with 7 or 8 letters.


  2. I admire you for what you are doing. Don't listen to silly remarks.
    I have no car and can't drive either , but I cycle everywhere. I am almost 80 now and I feel happy with my old bike and I don't pollute the environment .

  3. Keep on biking! The rest of us thank you for helping the environment!

  4. Way to go!
    My knees just can't bicycle anymore.
