Re: Riding a bicycle without brakes

It appears to me that in the two clips the pedestrians stepped into the path of the oncoming riders whilst looking the wrong way. If a pedestrian steps into the path of a two wheeled vehicle, even if travelling at slow speed, the rider has little chance. In fact even if they can avoid hitting the p...
