I think it depends on the operating company most of the stations with Bike & Go are operated by Northern Rail and Mersey Rail which according to their website
"Who is Northern Rail?....... a subsidiary of NS Dutch Railways. In addition to the Northern franchise, they also hold the 25-year concession to run Merseyrail services"
So it looks like in this case, we are getting a little bit of Dutch thinking...

Amazing how small both those prizes are though. I mean, you could win an elite-level professional race and not earn enough money to buy the equipment you used, let alone enough for dinner on top!

I have misgivings about some of of this.
While collecting data and analysing information about injuries is good and valid, some of the aims seem odd to me, and great care is going to be needed with the analysis and conclusions.
Using the data collected by injured cyclists to analyse LA interventions, and analysing injury risk based solely on the people coming though the ED doors will need to be done carefully.
It needs to be compared with the levels of people cycling at the same location that are not getting injured.
It would be very easy to analyse the data and find as that the majority of injuries were to the head, that helmets would be a good thing. IF that sample was only a very small sample of the number of cyclists overall though, then the conclusion would be bogus.

I could do that job. I'd just write them all a list saying;

2. Enhance risk of disease by sticking it in anything that moves

2. Do some ****ing real training
3. Grow a pair
Would fall on deaf ears though.

- Sir Dave Brailsford to give England footballers pre-World Cup pep talk1 year 9 weeks agoPerhaps the England team
Perhaps the England team should be picked, and it's tactics decided, by a text vote of tabloid "readers". Save everybody the expense, pretense and farce of having an England manager like Roy Hodgson.
As an aside, where do Brailsford's football allegiances lie? Is there a chance that he is doing an undercover/inside job for the Welsh?

- London hospital charity launches £650k Safe Cycling Appeal1 year 9 weeks agoActually this could be money
Actually this could be money well spent. At the moment there is a big hoo hah about helmets. vis Chris Boardman having to find strategies to get through that question and on to the real issues.
I watched a BBC breakfast telly programme last year and he was being interviewed and there was footage of him riding without a helmet. Both presenters zeroed in on this and wouldn't let go. He ended up saying he didn't want to get into the helmets issue because it wasn't relevant. After the interview there was a comment by one presenter that implied CB didn't want to talk about helmets because he was being irresponsible not wearing one.
So if the main hospital in the UK treating cyclists injured it RTCs gives us a definitive report then it will make Boardman's life a lot easier. Most cyclist killed or seriously suffer crushing or blunt trauma to the torso.
Anyway knowledge is power. Paramedics need info on likeliest internal injuries. possible complications and best ways top treat. So some cyclists may well get better immediate treatment as well.

Cause that injury in any other way with a piece of machinery, and terms like Grievous Bodily Harm and Assault will feature in the charges to be answered - so why do we persist in having that 'special exclusion' for the offences when committed using a motor vehicle.

About time too
It seems mad that riders as brilliant as Vos and Wyman could be racing for so much less money than their male counterparts.
We need more companies like Twenty20 Cycling who can recognise the massive potential of sponsoring women's cycling.
Let's hope this is the start of a trend.

- Man gets payout after ambulance that picked him up from bike crash injures him even more1 year 9 weeks agoAs someone else has already
As someone else has already mentioned the cyclist was suing the HSE and the Motor Insurance Bureau. The HSE were exonerated as the ambulance driver was found not to be at fault. The driver of the car who caused the ambulance to stop suddenly was found to be at fault.
Because he was uninsured the Motor Insurance Bureau took responsibility for the insurance - (in Ireland all insurance companies contribute to this so that in the event of an accident with an uninsured driver there is still recourse for the victim of the accident).
For those of you carping about state paying, money grabbing git etc please re-read the full story instead of skimming it.

- London hospital charity launches £650k Safe Cycling Appeal1 year 9 weeks agoIf the investigations are
If the investigations are holistic, thorough, and objective, and the results are fully published - like those for air and rail crashes - than I believe we may have a big step in the right direction.
It would really be wonderful if a report on a crash spells out the hazards that caused it, and the risks management that can mitigate, where the hazards cannot be totally eliminated, as well as analysing the injuries and how these were influenced by the causal factors of the incident.
If it delivers something even slightly more objective that most of the all too rare Coroner's Prevention of Future Deaths reports, then lest see it happening.
