Cycling Fatality Statistics

People are increasingly bicycling to commute, for exercise, and for fun. As you might expect, because cyclists are exposed (as opposed to enclosed with a frame around them like in a car) when a crash occurs between a vehicle and a bike, it’s the cyclist who is most likely to be injured. Between 2017 and 2018 there was a more than 6% increase in cycling fatalities in the United States. Here are some key statistics about cycling fatalities:
