1. Tell us a bit about your h
ometown. Where do you insist on taking out of town guests?
2. Where is your favorite place to take your Po Campo?
3. A suggestion for women who are interested in biking but have safety concerns?
I try to educate myself about the safety issues because it is easy to react emotionally rather than be logical and informed. Most of the danger is perception rather than fact- in the Boston area biking is just about as safe as walking. Bike crashes are unusual occurrences and reported more by the media- because of that we are more likely remember them. Car crashes are much more common but we don't dwell on them other than what the impact to traffic will be. But if people reacted appropriately to the real dangers- car crashes would be taken more seriously, cars would be much more regulated and roads better designed. Over 40,000 people are killed in car crashes annually the U.S. making it top most preventable causes of death.
