The increasing numbers of cyclists on our roads reflect the rapidly growing interest in the sport. Whilst this is very encouraging, given the environmental and health benefits of cycling, when cross-referenced with the numbers of cars on our roads, it is easy to understand why cycling accidents are common. At the end of 2016, there were 30.9 million cars licensed for the roads of Great Britain. Approximately 19,000 cycle accidents are reported each year. It is believed many more are not reported.
Cyclists face many risks on our roads. Common causes of accidents include:
Cyclists can sustain a whole range of injuries and unfortunately, all too often cycle accidents can result in life-changing and even fatal injuries.
