Guidance: Bicyclist Behaviors & Crash Risk

Vehicular cycling is a philosophy that cycling is generally safest when cyclists use roads in the same way as motor vehicles. While most urban cyclists come up with more pragmatic approaches, where required to share roads with vehicles, understanding the principles of vehicular cycling is worthwhile.

"Successful bicyclist behavior is driven by knowledge of common crash types and the behaviors needed to successfully avoid those crash types. Bicyclist behavior comes in a spectrum with three main behaviors, and in this article we aim to briefly describe the spectrum and show how those behaviors fare in common crossing conflict crash scenarios with diagrams and supportive video."
