The Highs and Lows of Cycle Safety (Video)
In the last decade, bicycle ownership has doubled in the UK and cycling on the road has increased by 12%. As a country, we are spending more on bikes and less on cars, which is great news for our health and for the environment. However, with 16,000 cycling injuries reported in the UK every year, cycle safety still has some way to go before our roads are truly safe for cyclists and we start to see a reduction in these types of accident claims. This video provides a range of UK statistics around cycle safety and takes a look at the pros and cons of biking in Britain.
