Study finds no matter what you wear, motorist will still run you over

Even if you are just a disembodied head Motorist will still run your ass over

Even if you're just a disembodied head motorist will still run your ass over
A study from the University of Bath concluded that drivers the leeway when overtaking cyclists was not effected by safety clothing or the precieved skill level of cyclists. While I believe the study has some methodical and reasoning errors it is still an interesting read, check it out for yourself here.

It would seem that Firefly is about to depart from their Titanium and Stainless steel focus to produce a Cro-mo frame? The teaser videos are somewhat annoying, but it's worth putting up with since their bike are absolutely perfect. If your not familiar with firefly you should really heck them out here.

Canadian Docotors Reccomend Cyclist Wear Body Amour

KidWrappedInBubbleWrap
 study by Surgeons at the Foothills Medical Center in Calgary, found common injuries between mountain bikers and commuter cyclist. To reduce cycling related injuries the good doctors (probably not cyclists) recommend that both commuter and mountain bikers should use thoracic protection in addition to helmets to to reduce injuries.

While cyclist often pose a risk to themselves, a study from March this year, from the University of Calgary, showed that collisions with motor vehicles pose the greatest threat to cyclists.  After compiling a meta analysis of these studies the team at Cat6racer.com has concluded that Cars should be padded to protect cyclist, pedestrians and motorist alike.
