Did you know bicycles can be dangerous?

By John Singleton on September 21, 2015

With the UCI World Road Cycling Championships happening in Richmond, everyone is talking about cycling.

But did you know that more people end up in the emergency room for head injuries from bicycling than any other sport? (Source: “Consumer Reports”)

In fact, cycling causes twice as many head injuries as football, and 3.5 times more than soccer.

What can you do? Always wear a helmet when riding a bike. A quality helmet can reduce the risk of traumatic brain injury by nearly 70 percent. Remember, the law requires a white light on the front, and we recommend a blinking red light on the back of your bike.
