Why does riding a bike or moped get looked down on in much of the USA?


I live in southern USA, and it seems that here there is a negative view of people who ride bikes or mopeds or even walk to get where they need to go. It is seen by many as being poor or low class. Isn't riding bikes or mopeds a normal thing in bigger cities? Are people in big cities looked down on too? I'd like for me and my husband to get bikes and start conserving on our vehicle but my husband is hesitant due to other's perceptions.

    Hmmm...here on the Niagara Frontier (New York) people usually ride their riding mowers and tractors when they lose their licenses. Not good, but all too common.

    I think many in larger cities have incomes and are not in poverty but ride by choice. It's sad when trying to reduce debt and costs equals loser.
