Decrease in cyclist deaths
The figures reported on Irish Cycle today show that the number of cyclists killed on Irish roads this year was at an all time low.
On the face of it this is encouraging, but until there’s a consistent trend I’m inclined to believe this is down to pure luck rather than safer driving and cycling.
Quite frankly I’m amazed only five cyclists were killed. Take a bike for a spin down some rural roads and you’ll see why I say that.
