We can say that bike riding is very safe, based on how many accidents bikers have. In 2017, about 66 million Americans rode a bike more than six times.
Fewer than 900 people die in bike accidents each year. Compare that to the 35,000 who die each year in motor vehicle accidents. About 500,000 bicyclists visit emergency rooms each year. Most of those injuries are quickly treated. The people leave that day. Some basic safety tips can help make those numbers even lower.
