1. Yes, the Berlin GAIR lift is what this is called. As I explored the various sites of Berlin in my attempt to learn all about Germany and Jewish life there before WW II I had an unexpected experience. Trying to be a typical Berliner I rented a bike at my hotel. Why not, even old people here are on bikes! I did not consider the facts though. I am an old, short, fat, ugly guy who has had several back operations over the years. My bike had a loose handle bar and it turned out that when I hit a bump the handle bars swiveled downward towards the ground 3 times. This in turn pitched me onto the ground, at one point twisted and pinned under the bike. This is a slideshow of the medical escort airlift that was done by the travel insurance company to transport this body of mine back to the USA. I first spent 10 days in a Berlin Hospital in the neurosurgery dept.
