Refused service at a Wendy's drive-thru window because you're on a bike. Why?

Someone who uses a bike as his primary mode of transport told me this story tonight: He rode to a Wendy's drive-thru and tried to order, but couldn't get the folks inside to notice him (maybe because they listen for engine noise or he didn't weigh enough or whatever). When he rode up to the checkout window, they told him they couldn't serve him. Other folks have told me similar stories, and I've encountered it once on a bike at a drive-through window at a branch of my bank.
Why do they do this? I find it difficult to believe that robbers on bikes are really that much tougher to catch than robbers in cars.
