Separate Bikes-Only Lanes in Cities Cut Injury Rate: Study
Date:2/17/2011

cular track.

And when they looked at all the cycle tracks together, the research team pegged the overall relative risk of injury as 28 percent lower on the separated tracks versus biking on a street in traffic.

"Based on the lower relative safety risk, we think that the construction of cycle tracks should not be discouraged," Lusk said.

Susan Finn, chairwoman of the American Council for Fitness & Nutrition in Washington, D.C, said Lusk's findings "all make sense," given that the focus should be on encouraging, rather than discouraging, the biking habit.

"I'm not necessarily talking about those people who are tremendous athletes with great skills who can perhaps handle sharing the road with cars," Finn noted. "I'm talking about those who would likely feel safer in a separated bike path, and therefore be more likely to actually get out and go biking in that kind of environment."

"So if what we want is to motivate people to be active and safe, regardless of the level of expertise, then it seems to me that a designated cycle path would really serve the majority of people we want to see getting out there," she added. "Those who maybe aren't the jocks but who want to engage in purposeful activity."
