I just pinched this off another thread in commuting http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/8296971.stm Quite an interesting article, and wondered what others thought about the differences between men and women on bikes. Are they more likely to put themselves in danger, and subsequently hae an accident. Is it stereotyping?Over generalisation? Or first hand experienced fact? Personally I'm a lot more cautious than most of the blokes I know who cycle, but I'm also more "rule" aware, I don't pavement hop and I ride in primary and signal clearly. I also seem to have more "incidents" than anyone else, all of them misses though.
