    See, I get that, but I have a few problems… the reason for their low number of head injuries is “slow speeds”. This is something that’s always bugged me about bike friendly communities. They almost all suppose slow speeds. I don’t want slow any more than I want an electric bike to do my pedaling for me, which is to say, “no thank you “.
