Cycling to work has never been so popular with commuters. Rising rents and utility bills coupled with relatively static wages and soaring transportation costs has seen droves of commuters reject cramped tubes and trains in favour of bicycles. The government backed initiative of Cycle to Work has meant that workers can spread the cost of their bicycle purchase over several months and if they cancel the gym membership they are pretty much quids in.
However, whilst cycling to work certainly reduces one’s monthly outgoings, the open road or cycle lane does have its downside and they come in the form of other road users. Cycle lanes are sporadic at best and not all commuters have the advantage of dedicated cycle lanes from their place of residence to their place of work.
Cyclists are vulnerable road users and this vulnerability is especially apparent during peak commuting times as drivers are either tired because they have just woken up or have had a long day, it can be dark and they are in a rush to get home or to get to work on time.
Common cycling injuries include:
- Limb Injuries
- Chest/Abdomen Injuries
- Head Injuries
