Bicycle safety experienced by cyclists within city limits in The Netherlands

Jeanette van 't ZelfdeConference room

  • Over 6000 Dutch cyclists, both pedelec and non-electric bicycle riders, joined a research on cycling safety within city limits
  • Both groups stand out in the judgement of their own way of cycling, rated with an 8.4 for safety and an 8.6 for confidence
  • Respondents with a pedelec tend to take more safety measures themselves than other cyclists
  • Differences in speeds and sizes on cycle paths make 23% of cyclists always or often feel unsafe
  • Infrastructural improvements, law enforcement and new or adjustment of legislation are the top 3 safety measures
