Special Issue "The Return of Cycling—Safety Implications"
A special issue of Safety (ISSN 2313-576X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (29 February 2016).
There has been a surge in cycling across many countries in the past decade. Part of this increase can be attributed to sport cycling among older men, often termed middle-aged men in Lycra or MAMILs, but there have also been increases in recreational, commuting, and utilitarian cycling. This is good news on many fronts, as cycling offers health benefits over motor vehicle travel, can substantially alleviate traffic congestion in urban areas, and has a small carbon footprint. The injury costs, however, can be quite substantial, including fatalities, traumatic brain injuries, and long bone fractures. With increases in cyclists there will likely be more injuries and, although dedicated cycling infrastructure appears to be a key component to ameliorating cycling injury, it is not fully understood which cycling safety strategies work best. This Special issue will explore the factors associated with reducing cycling injury with a focus to the potential increased health burden with more cyclists. Researchers are invited to submit manuscripts regarding any aspect of cycling safety.
