I would never claim, by the way, that bicycling is without danger. Just getting out of bed in the morning puts you in danger because danger is all around us. It’s how effectively we mitigate danger though our choices/actions/attitutes that largely creates a situation of danger versus relative safety.
I claim that bicycling is not dangerous. I’ve seen no statistics, nor heard any arguments, that convince me otherwise. I’ve experienced nothing on the streets that convinces me otherwise. I’ve seen how assertive, lawful bicycle driving mitigates the most common crashes and conflicts.
If you want to experience bicycling as a dangerous activity, go ride like an oblivious child.
