Bike riding is very safe. We know that from looking at how many accidents bikers have.
In 2017, about 66 million Americans took seven or more bike rides. Fewer than 900 people die in bike accidents each year. But motor vehicle accidents kill 35,000 each year. About 500,000 bicyclists go to emergency rooms each year. Most are treated and go home soon. Some basic precautions help keep riders safe.
