Safer cycling: A Partnership Project to Better Understand Cycling Patterns, Hazards, and Incidents

The project is following a cohort of cyclists over a 12-month period, obtaining information about their cycling patterns, injury and near miss experiences, and attitudinal and behavioural factors, in order to:

  • Develop measures of cyclist crash, near miss and injury rates for a broadly representative population of cyclists from metropolitan and regional New South Wales
  • Identify factors that contribute to crash, near miss and injury rates, e.g. human factors and road environment.Assess the risks for cyclists associated with cycling on roads, bicycle lanes and cycle ways.
