Innsbruck Bans Downhill Bikes from Public Transport
@BadgerBacker: In alpine nations (Switzerland, Austria, France, Italy, etc.) there is strong precedence for "right to roam" because most of the mountain paths are ancient, strongly constrained by geography, and essential for travel between small alpine communities. As Aerik indicates, you see less of this as you head north into the flatlands where there is little to impede the network of public roads, or people building big, long fences. As for this Dude, he appreciates the complement, dude. Not a lawyer, but spent many years living in N.Europe and teaching European cultural history in US.

Everyone has full insurance coverage, so it never occurs to anyone to sue to assure medical expenses are covered, because they already are. Their lawyer-per-capita number is a tiny fragment of California's, their legal code is not a house of cards built on shoddy precedence like ours, and there are no ignorant jurors on duty to hand out sweepstakes-mega-millions just because someone played their irrational heart-strings. Punchline: you need premeditated gross negligence on a scale vast enough to get a public prosecutor involved before that sort of case would get heard, and private parties don't get to play the system like a slot machine. This will get resolved by city officials because promoting cycling & access to public transit are two core European civic virtues: it will have zero.zero to do with fear of litigation.

5 Things We Learned at EWS Madeira 2019
@tremeer023: The nerve struck here is called Isolationism. Over half the US population is literally sick to its collective stomach over our recent return to insular, petty, provincial thinking. A bit ironic that a couple of Brits don't get that given A) our former British colony inherited this cyclical disorder from our island motherland, and B) you've just had an isolationist relapse yourselves in Brexit.

Endura's New MT500 Full Face Trail Helmet and MT500 Knee Pads - Garda Trentino 2019
Yes, I can't believe another cycling helmet maker has adopted this deeply-flawed technology: Koroyd obstructs airflow, plain & simple. I own a Smith Koroyd ski helmet, and on warm spring days, it doesn't breathe anywhere near as well as the non-Koroyd version my wife uses. As much as I like the idea of additional puncture-protection, orienting those little straws perpendicular to incoming air flow is just plain stupid. Did I mention they clog like crazy as soon as the snow flies? I'd hate to have to clean all that honeycomb after a muddy ride on a rainy day.
