Utility Cycling - Help on the Way
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I found this picture on the web today and thought everyone would like it. We have a few EMT bicycle responders here but only in the summer time when there is large groups of folks like festivals and such.

Where in NC is that at? I live near Fort Bragg and haven't seen those yet.
The picture is from London. I'm in Durham and our EMS responders only come out in the warmer months. Durham PD has a whole crew of bicycle police folk. They are riding almost everyday.

We have bike EMS responders in a lot of UK towns, all year round.They are best suited to cities with old medieaval street layouts having lots of narrow lanes. More here (http://www.eastanglianambulance.com/content/services/emergency/bicycleParamedic.asp)
Thanks Michael for the link. I'm wondering if any major U.S. cities are using this approach? Seems like it would work well in NYC.

Cool picture. I've got a buddy who is a paramedic, I'll ask him if they do anything like this around here.
