    Cyclist are wussies and motorcyclist are manly men

    I completely agree with you. People driving cars there is also a common thought that all cyclist are a danger in traffic and should be removed immediately whilst bikers are thinking that motor vehicle drivers are lazy people who are not willing to ride a bike and won't therefore respect them.

    How to be seen and safe from all directions

    I have acquired LED lights for my bike to be seen in the traffic. If it is even a little bit dark I put then on immediately to prevent accidents. In my opinion it is futile to keep them on at the day time.

    Cycling and music

    I listen to the music only if I am riding country roads since in the city it would be too dangerous. You have to hear what is happening around you and it many countries it is illegal to listen to music at the same time when riding a vehicle.

    Summer heat discourages cycling

    I have been feeling the same way since the weather conditions are improving quite quickly and therefore I feel less eager to climb on a bike and go for a ride. 20 degrees is still quite comfortable but anything above 30 is just a pain in the ass.

    How do you feel about child seats on bikes?

    It is a good idea to carry a child in these kind of seats and I have sat on them when I was a kid. Those could be a little dangerous but it is easy to take a child with you wherever you may go.

    power-assist,is it bicycling or not ?

    The answer is quite simple. If you are only using a help of an electric motor for instance in uphills then it is bicycling if you pedal once in a while. However if you are running with electric motor full time then it is just electric biking.

    Banning Night Riding

    Banning night riding would not be the solution for this problem. It is only lack of common sense to not act safely in the traffic and use at least one lightning equipment.

    Would A Commute Bag With Built-in Lights Make Sense?

    It would be a great addition to be seen better in the dark winter season. It seriously grinds my gears when someone is for example riding or jogging without any lights. They are quite hard to spot in traffic.

    Children On Bikes

    It sometimes looks really dangerous when really young children are riding with their parents. They drive really slow and don't watch where they are going or is someone behind them.
