Cycling Risk Assessment Study

"You can’t solve a problem until you can measure it." - late Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan

The New York Cycle Club (NYCC) is conducting a survey to gather bicycling accident information from a diverse population of cyclists. Anyone may submit one or more bicycling accident survey responses. Whether you had a minor or major accident, or observed one, live in New York or far away, please click here to enter a survey response.

The results of this ongoing world-wide survey will eventually be compiled, analyzed, and published here. In the meantime, below are links to a few other cycling safety related studies that may be of interest to you. It is worth noting, these studies are the result of compiling accident statistics from police reports or by performing a controlled experiment.

The NYCC Cycling Risk Assessment Study differs as the information collected is completely voluntarily and in most cases represents first hand accounts by the person experiencing the accident or someone closely related to such person. In turn it will provide more up-to-date research as most of the studies cited below are at least 7 years old.
