Joy Meets Necessity

Thank you for your article about Santa Barbara cyclists who just want to have fun. The story evokes the joy of the sport in the midst of its positive health and environmental implications.

I also notice people in Santa Barbara who ride bicycles for another reason: A bike is the cheapest mode of transportation in the city. These riders usually lack state-of-the-art attire, helmets, and not infrequently bicycle lights at night. Perhaps you might write an article about them. They are another part of our diverse community.
