Bicycle safety is certainly on-topic. For example:
- How to find a helmet that fits
- Safety vests and visibility strategies
But what about potentially inflammatory topics such as:
- Should I wear a helmet?
- Is it safe to listen to music while cycling?
I'd like to have something to point to when people ask why something is off-topic. If the community decides to allow helmet arguments, for example, I'm fine with it but we should have a way to address anything that turns into a flame war (which I don't think has happened yet). If we can find a way to debate these flame-worthy topics on this forum, it'd be great, but it would have to fit within the SE Q&A format.
I'll keep this updated with the consensus as to what's on topic and what isn't.
