The web is not secure. As of August 2016, only 45.5 percent of Firefox page loads are HTTPS, according to Josh Aas, co-founder and executive director of Internet Security Research Group. This number should be 100 percent, he said in his talk called “Let’s Encrypt: A Free, Automated, and Open Certificate Authority” at LinuxCon North America.

As long as my hosting company is charging me $300/year, yeah, not so much.

The helmet debate has been raging for years. The way things look, it shows no signs of abating.

+Pedal Pusher I agree with most of your comments and your comment re speed. I tend to ride at an average of 25Km/h with occasional periodsof up to 40Km/H (max I've gone is 60!).
I prefer a helmet.
A great problem with statistical analysis of cycling accidents is that most are not reported unless they're quite serious.
If someone is to have a collision/accident and the helmet worked, they're not reporting a head injury.
The most recent research I've seen looked at whether helmets helped where the person broke another bone in their body.
This doesn't address those instances where you don't need a hospital but the helmet saved you from a more serious injury.

In addition you have those 'pedestrian' cyclists who travel at a slow jog, rather than those like me who tend to go as fast as they can.

Helmets are not a significant issue for slow riders.

All that said, my son had an accident recently. The helmet saved him from a more serious injury (he ended up with lots of scrapes etc).

It's a complicated issue.

My cargo trailer search has narrowed down to the Burley Flatbed and not much else. I think it's almost big enough for what I want to do (haul branches to the composting facility, mostly) and the price is right. If I were going to tour with a trailer, I think I'd really prefer something a bit more streamlined with one wheel. Like a Yak or Ibex.
