Large groups I don't know what's best exactly - it's bad for them to get split up, and if they're not too large a group they can get through in about the same time as a big truck or something so it's not that insane for them to go together.
This list of countries by traffic-related death rate shows the annual number of road fatalities per capita per year and per vehicle-km in some countries in the year the data was collected.
According to the World Health Organization, road traffic injuries caused an estimated 1.25 million deaths worldwide in the year 2010. That is one person is killed every 25 seconds. Only 28 countries, representing 449 million people (7% of the world’s population), have adequate laws that address all five risk factors (speed, drink–driving, helmets, seat-belts and child restraints). Over a third of road traffic...
This list puts Germany in a slightly worse position than Holland.
> - Despite extremely high rates of cycling and negligible helmet use the odds of being killed while cycling in the Netherlands are extremely low. - Nationally the total of bicycle accident deaths hovers around 200. - In Amsterdam about 6 people die in bike-related accidents yearly.
If the number of deaths were proportional, we should have had 10 deaths in Amsterdam.
And that's not counting any tourists or visitors.
And bike use in Amsterdam is far above average anyway.
And Amsterdammers pay less attention to traffic lights than most other places.
So...things appear to be going fairly smoothly, despite the extremely risky things one sees bikers do here.
I'm lucky in that I have a safe bike route from my house to the train station. Sometimes I'll bring my bike in on the Ⓣ, but then I'll mostly ride on the sidewalk — I'm just too afraid to ride alongside traffic.
Not so sure about that... the elliptical makes things easier on your legs and doesn't really use upper body much, while bike without seat forces you to use leg strength to maintain balance at parts of the pedal stroke when you'd normally have weight on the seat.
Although I am not obese I tend to get very exhausted after 2-3 minutes of running (max). So how can I increase the stamina for running.
Although I take healthy diet but still get exhausted easily. I have no heart condition either.
@Arrowfar From what I understand, it takes time to build up your endurance. Running is an intensive cardio-vascular exercise. You're not building up your leg muscles as much as you're building up your heart and lungs.
@Arrowfar Regardless of whether you achieve it through biking, swimming, running, or dancing; when you get your heart up to that target rate and maintain it for twenty minutes or so, your brain benefits and releases endorphins to help you. Sometimes it's called the "runner's high".
