Cyclists urged to help tackle cycling safety mystery
NHS Bristol, working in partnership with Greater Bristol's Cycling City team and the West of England Road Safety Partnership, is urging cyclists to help find out more about what causes ‘non-collision cycling incidents’.
In England last year, 8,540 cyclists were admitted to hospital in an emergency following a non-collision incident - four times more than the number knocked off their bikes by vehicles. But because the police are rarely involved little is known about the pattern of incidents and injuries that result.
Cllr Jon Rogers, Bristol City Council, said: “It’s interesting that the biggest hazards cyclists face appears to be, more or less, under our own influence.
“By carrying out this survey into the causes of non-collision incidents we hope to help people avoid the irritating incidents that can sometimes result in serious injury.”
