--Jim (@jwbener) sent over a recent study has confirmed that women cyclists are more likely to die while riding bikes. I wonder what the results would have been if they'd judged by skill level instead of gender.
Eiter way, here's a tip from another study Lucas sent over: don't wear a helmet at all. That's right. According to this study, cyclists wearing helmets are more likely to be hit. The theory is that when a car sees a cyclist without a helmet they assume it's a novice and stay clear. Despite the results, before you go super Fred and stop wearing a helmet, consider the study was conducted in a little Euro-town and here in the US of A we have an order of magnitude more cars than there.
