    The most dangerous cities to cycle within the UK


    Every day in the UK, thousands of people climb aboard a bike. Cycling is often a cheap way of commuting, and it can also save you from getting stuck in traffic at rush hour. When you get on your bike, you don’t want to think about not arriving at your destination in one piece, but cycling accidents are fairly common. If you’re a cyclist, here are some of the most dangerous cities to cycle within the UK, and some tips to help you stay safe.

    The most dangerous cities to cycle within the UK

    We’re often encouraged to leave the car at home and cycle or walk to work. This has benefits for both our health and the environment, but there are risks involved. Figures from RoSPA suggest that more than 21,100 people were injured in cycling accidents in 2014. The most dangerous cities to cycle within the UK include:

    • London
    • Brighton
    • Bradford
    • Manchester
    • Liverpool
    • Bristol

    Cycling accidents can occur as a result of a loss of control or failure to look on the part of a cyclist or errors made by pedestrians and drivers. It’s not possible to prevent all cycling accidents, but many could be avoided if cyclists were able to use designated cycle lanes and drivers paid more attention to bikes on the road. Cycling injuries can range from minor cuts and bruises to fractures, head injuries and spinal injuries.

    Cycling safety tips

    If you’re cycling on the road, bear these tips in mind:

    • Always wear high visibility clothing
    • Wear a helmet
    • Stick to cycle lanes where possible
    • Use your lights when it’s foggy or dark
    • Avoid cycling in adverse weather conditions
    • Always check around you before setting off or pulling over

    If you’ve been injured on a bike, and you weren’t to blame, you may be toying with the idea of making a compensation claim. Claiming compensation for a cycling accident could provide you with a cushion if you’ve been forced to take time off work. Or, tide you over if your earnings have been affected. If you’d like to find out more about claiming for a bike accident, call Accident Advice Helpline. If you’ve been injured as a result of somebody else’s negligence in the last 3 years, we are here to help. Our expert personal injury lawyers will take over your case, and leave you to focus on getting better. Our lines are open now on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone.
