"Cycling is Dangerous"

No it isn't.

Motoring is dangerous : cyclists are endangered...
... as are pedestrians and even other motorists !

Those that say "Cycling is Dangerous" have obviously given the subject no thought.

Their aim may be to exaggerate the fear of motorists, in a word, terrorism.

I've even experienced the argument taken to extremes:
"It's dangerous because if you get in my way, I'll get angry and I might do something dangerous - that could get you killed."
So ... do we roll over in the gutter and let the terrorists have their way ?
"Kid killed - how dangerous are 'Balance Bikes'?"
