How safe is cycling? Perception vs. reality.

Perception:

  • 72 per cent of parents believe that there are more [cycling] accidents in 2007 than ten years ago.

Reality:

  • Serious accidents involving all riders, particularly children, are now in sharp decline, while the number of cyclists has edged up 4%.
  • The number of children killed or seriously injured on bikes has dropped by 55 per cent over the last decade.

From Cycling England’s ‘Staying Safe‘ consultation.
