Always a risk when you have to rely on badly designed motor vehicles in your
otherwise excellent scheme.

Why rely on them at all?

Just leave the bikes wherever they happen to be when their users have no
further use for them. Sorted.

Oh that is funny!

So, Simple Simon. Whats the alternative to "badly designed motor vehicles"
then.

This is going to be good.

Thanks for posting that.

Do you think that cycling is becoming more dangerous?

Stopping distances for bicycles do not appear in the HC ... and so
cannot be of any consequence.
