Common Risks Associated With Bicycle Commuting

There is always a risk associated with bicycle commuting. A recent study found that “cycling was associated with a higher risk of injury to arms and legs, the torso, the head or neck, and fracture injuries.” This is true of all types of cycling, from commuting to recreation. For bicycle commuters, traveling every day in close proximity to motor vehicles, the likelihood that injury will befall them is very high. The daily swells and congestion of traffic can sometimes lead to negligence on the part of both motor vehicle drivers and bicycle commuters. For this reason, it is crucial that you ensure that you and your loved ones are following the appropriate safety measures, whether you are the one behind the wheel or on the bicycle, in order to ensure your own personal safety as well as the safety of others.



Benefits of Bicycle Commuting

While a recent study by the BMJ Medical Journal did find that there was a greater likelihood of hospital admission associated with individuals who frequently biked, 45% to be exact, the health benefits that accompany riding a bicycle every day were, in their opinion, worth the risk. Even though cycling to work might lead to an accident, it also has the long-term benefits of reduced risk of heart attack or strokes, lower risk of cancer, and a higher life expectancy overall.

With the advance of technology and the seemingly unending workday, it is becoming harder and harder to set aside personal time. Cycling is a great way to spend time with friends and family. For commuters, it introduces exercise to the daily work routine and saves money that might otherwise be spent on gas and car repairs.
