Question 1: Does the city really do anything right? How is this statistically insignificant amount of crashes any more or less important than car crashes, or pedestrians accidents? Are you just trying to scare people into not biking?
B-Boy's Answer: You just don't get it! It's all part of the massive conspiracy with the all powerful SF bike coalition that dates back all the way to the Kennedy assassination. Also, have I ever told you about how much I hate muslins. Those cotton delicate sheers really grind my gears!
Question 2: Wait, the study says that there's more AVB (Automobile Vs. Bicycle) accidents than CO (Cyclist Only) accidents. Doesn't that suggest that many of these accidents could be prevented by simply having motorists behave better on the roads and design better, safer, streets?
Bobbert's Answer: Don't distract yourself from the real conclusion of this study. People got hurt biking so it would be better if we simply create more barriers to stop cyclists from ever setting ass on a bike. Do you really think that motorists are going to behave any better, ever?
Question 3: Don't the authors of this study come to the following conclusion: "Access to bicycling and other non-motorized modes of transportation is a significant need, especially in light of the public health issues resulting from inactivity. To encourage bicycling, improved roadways and management of risk and risk perception is key."
Bobby's Answer: They're a bunch of brain washed dicks! The point is that even if you touch a bike you run the risk of winding up in the emergency room.

Bababui's Answer: Those are in different cities and countries, so I absolutely and conveniently cannot comment on them. It has nothing to do with my inability to see outside of my own bias and weigh evidence from various points of view.
Question 5: The study also mentions "Surveillance data from both police records and hospital records will enable a better understanding of the needs for cycling infrastructure and public health education through evidence based research on both national and international scales." Are you suggesting that they're intelligent when it comes to uncovering the facts, but they're terrible interpreting the facts and making recommendations?
Bobboy's Answer: Shut up! The government should be scaring the shit out of anyone who bikes in the city! They should actively discourage people from foolishly attempting to travel a densely packed 50 square mile city by bike. Here's a picture of a mangled bike. Put on your "Everything was Amazing in the 50s" glasses and read that study again!
