"The safest biking cities are places like Amsterdam and Copenhagen, where middle-aged commuters are mainstay riders and the fraction of adults in helmets is minuscule."

I've not been to Copenhagen, but in Amsterdam most of the bicycles are utilitarian single speed coaster brake beasts pedaled along at walking pace by people going to/from work and shopping, and not the 21 speed titanium/carbon fiber wonders of modern science hustled at 35 mph by fitness freaks.
