Older cyclists views on their own possibilities to improve their safety
Older cyclists views – Magnus Andersson 2021
During the period 2015-2019, 105 cyclists died in Sweden. Of these, 61 cyclists were over 65, which corresponds to 58 per cent of all cyclists killed. The project ”Older cyclists views on their own possibilities to improve their safety” was conducted in 2020 by road safety consultant Magnus Andersson, Cajoma Consulting, Sweden. The project was based on a literature review and 17 interviews with cyclists between 65 and 83 years of age. The project focused on three areas: bicycle helmet use, bicycle status and risk situations in the traffic. The study contains 22 recommendations directed to older cyclists. Among these recommendations arethe following: To always use a bicycle helmet, even at shorter distances. To always abstain from alcohol in connection with cycling. To try to avoid cycling at intersections without traffic lights. Not to blindly trust the priority to the right rule at intersections. To try to lead the bike at passages that are perceived to be unsafe. To look safest way to cycle even if it is not equal to the nearest way. To lower the saddle height so that the cyclist can always have ground contact with the feet when sitting on the saddle. When buying a bicycle, to choose a type of bicycle of the right size and which enables the saddle height to be lowered sufficiently. To make a balance analysis in connection with health checks. The study was funded by Skyltfonden at the Swedish Transport Administration
