    It is difficult to know what a given statistic means. If the number of bicyclists who visit an ER goes up during 2009, does it mean that the "average" cyclist is getting injured more often, or does it reflect more people riding, and especially more NEW folks riding? Hard to know.

    Hard to also determine how many of these accidents involve "cyclists" and how many are people riding bikes such as kids and MUP riders....Two completely different types of activity that are classified as one..

    7 accidents so far this year...I'd bet the majority, if not all, occurred at intersections with the Sippo trail or O&E Towpath.
    "Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey
