Cycling Fact: Safety in Numbers

If someone asks, “What can I do to make the road safer for cyclists?” you can tell them, “Get your own butt on a bike!”

Data from Minneapolis-St. Paul reviewed by the Star Tribune (and found by us via Urban Velo) has shown “cyclist-motorist accident rate dropping as the number of bike commuters grows.”

I love the notion of an activity making itself safer automatically as more people participate in the activity.  So do your neighbors a favor and make the streets safer for them and their families: get on a bike today!

This and more fun facts can be found on our Cycling Facts page.
