    What is strange to me, is that numbers seem to have increased in the winter months, I would have expected them to drop as less people ride daily in the winter months. Acknowledged, this is only part of a one year cycle, so maybe there are just more bikes on the road, or could it be that cold weather causes slower reaction times and misty visors/windscreens add to visibility problems?

    Edit. Could cold tyres be a contributing factor?

    It could purely mean that, during winter, more people call the other ambulance service.

    Just showing how useless it is to try and use stats when, not in context, especially for Think Bike.

    As at Jan-15 we had 15 calls
    As at Feb-15 we had 10 calls
    etc.

    Nope, the stats run from the 1st to the end of the month.

    Jan-15 = January 2015

    Cool. Fact remains it wasn't 1515 patients in Jan and 1510 in Feb and 1531 in March as the forum formatting made it look once Alex re-quoted.
