letters | A BIKE COMMUTER’S WAY

Wait — wasn’t God his copilot?

I enjoyed Ty Burr’s G section cover story on cycling through the city (“Why I bike,” Oct. 9). I had to roll my eyes, however, when I realized that you’d done a number on him. Near the end of the article, Burr lists the three reasons he’s reminded he is still cyling: “the grace of God, my wits, and a healthy respect for everyone else on the road.” On the cover of the G section, you’ve adapted this to “Wits, luck, respect.” What’s missing, and why am I not surprised?

Why are you so afraid to paraphrase him truthfully? You could even have replaced “luck” with “grace” and kept the religious overtones to a safe minimum.
