    update: Facebook was rather ineffective in tracking people interested in actually joining the tour, versus "fans" of the page. So a dedicated website has been started, but not only for EuroTour...

    Very much so the case. It's been shown in various ways in Denmark and Netherlands that cycling 'en masse' is far safer than individually, regardless of wearing a helmet or not. Motor vehicle...

    If being a loser means having more money in your pocket at the end of a pay period (not spending it on car things like gas and insurance and costly repairs), better health and higher chance of living...

    Your point is moot because the UCI deals with racing conditions, not day-to-day riding. Several of these "studies" you mention (since you don't mention specific ones I have to generalize just a bit)...

    Well it might have, but we don't have any information on how the accident happened. But I do agree, it's rather silly to say the helmet did it's job when DocsDad's friend needed facial repair and...

    Never wear a helmet, so never have the temptation! :) Bike helmets are still too under-engineered for the task at hand.

    Correction, I did wear a helmet a couple of times around 2004-2007 but...

    Or on a recumbent trike or quad with appropriate rear rack and bags, which can later be upgraded to a velomobile so that you can ride all year 'round in greater comfort, speed, and cargo capacity. :)

    Not to de-rail the thread too much, but seat comfort was my key reason for switching from uprights to recumbents - specifically recumbent trikes (then later velomobiles). I started doing long 1,000+...

    Agreed. Quite hard on the battery, but very good for the chores of offline maps (especially cycle maps from http://www.opencyclemap.org/), navigation, or finding points of interest.

    I've been cycling for my commute and for recreation since about 1990. I did it because it was cheaper over all and made me more fit. Gas prices have never entered my mind since 1990. No longer...
