Disclaimer and sage wisdom

We freely offer advice based on our decades of personal experience with bicycling. However, cycling has risks and we're not going to be responsible for what you do with that advice.

Are you an idiot? If you're an adult, you should know by now, but judging from what we've seen on the internet, maybe not. So let us explain that if you get a brilliant idea after reading something on this website, stop, take a deep breath and ask a friend who is not an idiot whether trying it out is a good idea.

If you are not an adult, go ask your parents. If your parents are idiots, good for you for recognizing this. Still, go ask them, you need their permission. Then go ask an adult who is not an idiot.

If you are a parent who wants their kids not to be idiots, good for you. Managed exposure to appropriate level risk makes strong kids, wrapping them in the bubble wrap the toy came with does not. Books like "50 Dangerous Things You Should Let Your Children Do" and visits to Berkeley's Adventure Playground are a good start. If you're having trouble, entrusting them to that uncle who knows about explosives, but somehow still has all his fingers is also good.

And believe this, if you do somehow decide to sue us after doing something stupid, we're poor. And we're dedicated to not making things easy. You will lose money even if you win the case, and we will take it to trial just so we can make fun of your lawyer in open court.

Ok then. Here it is again, spelled out in legalese, just in case you really are that dense.
