    That 20 cyclists died in 2011 is very worrying. It is a big jump from the already bad 9 or 10 deaths annually, over the last ten years or so. Why the huge increase? Perhaps there are more people cycling – but a sudden doubling is unlikely, and anyway, in other places, as cycling has grown, the absolute number of fatalities has come DOWN, as all road users adjust and drive more safely.

    Either it is a very severe ‘unlucky’ year, or the lack of public awareness about cycling, and of proper cycling training, is worse than we thought.

    Either way, we will be remembering them all on 16th May 2012, on the Ride of Silence (http://www.rideofsilence.org) and working hard to understand and help reduce future fatalities and injuries.
