Re: Is 'ethical cycling' also a protected belief?

I recall some cyclists in Australia who had serious problems when bike helmet law came in. It impacted on them by trying to make them change their cycling approach and caused them distress. When any activity becomes a prominent part of life, contributing to well being and mental health, imposed chan...

Re: Is 'ethical cycling' also a protected belief?

Ethical cycling may be worthy of considering a protected belief in some respects. If for example, a person has cycled for many years and it plays a large part of their life and they gain a feeling of it providing the best means for them to travel unassisted and it supports their health and well bein...

Table 3 regarding boxing indicates more impacts to the helmet than would occur for a bare head.

So it needs a UK Cycling Strategy to make improvements for cycling in general detailing how to achieve the objectives.

Re: Helimeds.

I do not recall any specific statistical analysis detailing parts to seriously question the findings. Doctors may well ask about helmets for general information or to see if the person can discuss the accident and is showing any signs of concussion. The important part is knowing why the accident hap...

Re: Helmet reports show up concerns

Jake Olivier wrote; Clarke’s primary argument is what I call the ‘helmet law as cycling deterrent’ hypothesis. There’s no real, solid evidence to support this hypothesis, yet it has not stopped those like Clarke to proclaim its truth to anyone who cares to listen Olivier gave evidence to the Austral...

Re: East Ridng rural village under threat

Is the problem because it's a prison or would a new factory provoke the same outcry? A new factory with the same level of traffic would also be bad for the location. A prison is somewhat different, in that drug dealers may frequent the area and prisoner being released may have no home to go to. A c...

Re: East Ridng rural village under threat

The development would result in about 32000 trips per month and a proportion would use part of the NCN. Many cyclists from the York area use these roads on a regular basis in addition to locals and tourists. A very small proportion of staff may use a bicycle but 95% of journeys would be by car. Abou...

Re: East Ridng rural village under threat

In the East Riding a mega prison planning application for Full Sutton with an additional prison for 1440 inmates has been approved, close to the NCN route 66. The area is used by cyclists frequently from across the area, especially from York. The prison ...

Re: Evaluating the impact of cycle helmet use...

see Table 12 for reported differences between helmeted and non-helmeted in the USA
The BMJ report details for alcohol 2% v 15%.
It appears other factors could be involved.
