    I have discovered, after years of cycling, how to achieve the perfect safety record!

    The answer is simple: don't ride.

    Yes, folks, that's the perfect way to avoid any mishaps on a bike--just stay off it. I know it's hard to swallow, but it's true. The sad truth is that more cycling accidents happen to those who ride bikes than to those who do not.

    Now, we can all rejoice! We have found the perfect way to be perfectly safe and avoid any mishaps on the bike--don't ride.

    Who's with me?
    No worries

    While that may be true... according to a g'mint study, you can also decrease accidents simply by increasing the number of trips taken... 'course that there study didn't make the number go down to zero, but then those folks actually went somewheres...

    Just make sure that whatever you're not riding, you're doing so in the legal vehicular manner.

    Is it a tandem we're not riding?.....Does that make us doubly safe?....

    I took my first ride of the year yesterday to see if anything besides my legs had siezed up over the winter. No mishap, so I guess I had better take your advice and hang it up till next March while I'm batting 1000 .

    Not me.

    If I gave up the bike, I'd end up tripping on my own feet, falling in front of a car and getting squished.
