Bike Falls may be Fatal


"The lack of an informed choice

re cycling participation promotion

as to the risks of death and serious injury    

and risk reduction measures


may be negligent"



Pete Dowe 
Road Safety Advocate



Bike Falls aka Bicycle Alone Accidents



called bicycle alone accidents as no other vehicle was involved


" Around 80% of all cyclist hospitalisations are for crashes 

that do not involve motor vehicles."


"All the cyclists who have a crash ‘all by themselves’, called bicycle alone or single vehicle crashes. 


These account for around 80% of all hospitalisations."
