I still think it's fair to point out that there is a learning curve for any new vehicle. Does anyone doubt that teenage drivers get in more accidents? People take kayaking classes, and skydiving lessons, but seem to think it's elitist to suggest the same for cyclists, or if not a course at least some time on the road. I don't claim to be a "real" cyclist, but I do claim to be more way more experienced than about 90% of the riders who cross my path on my daily commute.
