It’s a joy to explore London on a bicycle in the warm summer months. Riding is fun and has tremendous benefits to one’s cardiovascular fitness, but with cyclists competing with other road users for a space on the tarmac, it also means that there are more cycling accidents reported on the road unfortunately, particularly between May and September.
Of all the cycling accidents that were reported in 2016, 80% occurred during daylight hours, 75% happened near a junction, and 75% of fatal accidents happened in urban areas. Busy junctions, heavy vehicles on the road, and a lack of awareness of cyclists means that London can be a risky place to manoeuvre on a bike.
