The number of people who go cycling has been increasing, as bikes are used more often for both standard transportation and for recreation and exercise. Along with this increase, there has been an uptick in accidents and injuries. While this is to be expected, it's very much worth noting that the amount of injuries is actually climbing at a faster rate than the amount of new cyclists.
While some cyclists crash on their own, the vast majority are involved in accidents with other vehicles on the road. Only about 8 per cent crashed with no other involvement, while 92 per cent collided with other cyclists or motor vehicles.
