Statistically, cycling is about 2-3 times safer in Europe than in North America. I'd wager there are a few reasons for this: better road infrastructure, cyclists who know how to ride properly, and more aware, tolerant drivers (not necessarily in that order).

My point in writing this article is that cycling is already safer than driving, even with our current infrastructure and drivers, and that the way you ride makes a huge difference in your risk of injury in all conditions.
