Safety Fears Stop Bikes For Africa

Here's an appropriate little 'wedgie' in the Fear of Cycling series. The Isle of Wight County Press Online [big name for a little paper :-)] reports that the Hampshire Constabulary has cut off supplying unclaimed stolen bikes to a charity that sends bikes to Africa.

They are, get this... afraid of being sued if someone gets hurt whilst using one of them. You'd think that they were talking about barrels of toxic waste.

Here's the link to the article, and thanks to Sally for the link.
