  1. There's a coverage of a study on Cycling and Health at
    http://www.derbycyclinggroup.org.uk/content.asp?tag=DCG363

    It's too long to include here, but one interesting figure is that in the UK in 2001, 111 adults and
    25 children were killed during cycling, whilst 236,000 people were killed by cardiovascular disease.

    All these figures are too high, but perhaps we should not bother with compulsory helmet wearing, and
    concentrate on compulsory exercise!

    ...unfortunately, I'm one of those non sylph-like people who's in danger on either side of this
    equation...

    HTH,

    Pete.
