What a fantastic little film, provides a source of optimism, if only it was compulsory viewing for City planners.

I would be very interested to know about cycling accidents in Amsterdam. very sure serious car related injuries and fatalities would be down, but with the sheer number of cyclists on the road, wondering if minor accidents are more frequent per riding capita than in other cities.

And of course (dare I mention it) what the effect of sooo many riders with no helmets is.

Their stats show safety in numbers also gets more incidents, so people not crashing in cars are still crashing on bikes. I had to stop at the helmets there is a thread for that :D

Far the majority of western countries have experienced a decrease in the total number of injuries in transport at the same time as the number of kilometres travelled has increased significantly.


Copenhagen's distance cycled and serious injuries

European cycling risk (US and Australia are well off the scale of this graph)

Figures on cycling and cycling risk from Vienna 1980-1992 ("Unfallrisiko means "accident risk" and "Wege" means "trips"). Huge increase in cycling and an associated three fourth decrease in accident risk [12].

I also did some research into Dutch cycling stats and discovered:
SWOV (the Dutch national road safety research institute) have said that only 20 percent of cycling accidents involve motor vehicles. The other 80 percent involve only an individual or other cyclists.
Usage is huge: Nationally the total of bicycle accident deaths hovers around 200.16 million Dutch own 18 million bikes.
About half the population of the NL rides a bike once a day.
The average distance traveled by bike per person per day was 2.5km in 2006.
The bicycle is used for almost a quarter of all journeys, and 35% of journeys below 7.5km.

Overall traffic safety in NL is the best in Europe with 45 deaths per million inhabitants per year.
The US has 147 deaths per million inhabitants per year.
You’re more likely to die of murder in the US than by cycling in the Netherlands.
You’re more likely to die by drowning in the Netherlands than by cycling.
In Amsterdam about 6 people die in bike-related accidents yearly.

There are some emerging problems with bike congestion and parking issues, however from what I've read, the upside is massive.

An interesting comparison of cycling in te US compared to Netherlands:

It doesn't please you that more people cycling actually really does make for a safer, happier society? In contrast to the myths of the naysayers.

I'm sorry, I didn't even look at the numbers, all I just saw was links to reports & graphs. I started having cold sweats and flashbacks to monthly report meetings and knowing what a lot of number fudgery went on there.

Good or bad, there are lies, damn lies and then there are statistics. This aside people will read and believe what they want to. Including those old sociopathic managers of mine. Quoting one of the better ones I had when I queried the make up of some numbers once; "It doesn't matter if you're wrong - just as long as your consistently wrong"

Please stick to the pics in this thread.

"I will choose a bicycle that reflects my personality and style"

Shoot me now. The smugness in that comment is straight out of a Jeep Cherokee/BMX X5 ad.

Anyway, what was I saying about pictures?
