Re: Cycling in Switzerland

The flaw was, their sample was flawed; they had analysed only the surviving/retrieved aircraft. The ones which were perhaps hit on other sections were down under sea or blown beyond retrieval.

Most of us who are narrating our experiences have had brushes in the bike path…those who had brushes in the main roads perhaps aren’t alive to narrate their stories? So the hypothesis is, bike paths are high probability low intensity risk, whereas main roads are low probability but high intensity risk…Perhaps to an experienced biker like Patrick this insight is embedded in his intuition, that’s why he “feels” bike paths are safer, although he might have had several close calls on bike paths…

I personally have insufficient experience here to take a position on which one is safer...just trying to make the discussion interesting and balanced.
