    A helmet is probably a good idea for new or inexperienced riders. The LAB guidelines seem to be very realistic and practical. "Driving" a bicycle is a good way to convey that riding a bicycle on a...

    I lived in Europe for almost 5 years, never drove but rode a lot. The driving skills are better, but drivers tend to be far more agressive and rude.

    I don't think videos of driving from Russia are going to show much more than universal mayhem. Alcohol was probably involved.

    Electronic devices are here to stay, no laws or restrictions are going to change that. It's a cycling issue because cyclists are using them too.

    That's perfectly reasonable and logical.
    I'm not taking a lane for no reason other than another cyclist might come from the other direction riding too fast for the road conditions.
