BikeSpot Survey 2020 – Bike safety

BikeSpot 2020 results are in!

They received over 31,000 submissions (spots, comments and ‘likes’) overall in the 2 month period between 31 March 2020 and 31 May 2020. This is an increase of 260% from of the BikeSpot project conducted back in 2016.

The top 5 findings are:

  • 1. Cyclists and drivers want dedicated space from other transport modes
  • 2. Traffic speed causes the most stress for cyclists

(followed by ‘Too much vehicle traffic’ and ‘Car dooring’ fears).

  • 3. Want more confident riders? — Build a connected network

‘Interested but concerned’ cyclists (least experienced / least confident cyclists) rank on average ‘Cycle lane ends’ as their top stress experience.

  • 4. Fear of car dooring — a daily concern

Top submitted fears that cyclists experience multiple times per week.
