California, 1999:  Cycling home with son on the back of my bike – our usual mode of transport in that small, flat, university town – when a woman yells at me from her car. “Shame on you! How dare you jeopardize your child’s life? You have no right to risk your child’s life, cycling through traffic. I have two children and I would never put their lives at risk! Shame on you!”
