Worldwide Bicycle Accident Survey

Biking ElsewhereThe New York Cycle Club, a 1,600+ member organization, located in New York City, is conducting a worldwide bicycle accident survey. The results will be published as part of a cycling risk assessment study that will be made freely available to the public at the conclusion of the survey. It is for education and advocacy purposes. The survey contains dozens of data points and its design is streamlined to have folks get through the survey as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Please consider entering one or more accident survey responses. The more responses, the more meaningful the results will be. Thank you.

Thank you very much for your consideration.

Route to work?

Biking in BaltimoreHi. I'm moving to Baltimore from Chicago, where I currently have a 15 mile round trip commute.

In Baltimore, I will be working at JHU's medical campus, and sometimes at Bayview. I am considering living near the subway stations along Park Heights (e.g., Reistertown or Rogers metro stations), so that I can take the subway sometimes, but I would also like to bike sometimes as well. Is there a safe way to go from there to JHU if I'm traveling only in the daytime?
