I personally know quite a few roadies who do commute, but anyway, it's refreshing to read a mature opinion. I don't get the bashing either. I'll say hats off to any man that can get on a bicycle and pedal 100 miles. Plus, I've never been put into a ditch or worried about being hit by someone on a bicycle.
Interesting dynamic, this need to bash of other bicyclists. I frequent a number of cycling forums and never see any mention of motored bikes or the riders who use them.
