‘Cycling safety in pandemic time’

The pandemic we are witnessing has clearly affected all aspects of our society, not the least when it comes to transportation. Many people turned to bicycles for commuting to avoid congested public transport. Many cities support this movement by improving bicycle infrastructure, taking space from cars to make bicycle lanes and so on.

What are the safety effects of this sudden process? Do more cyclists imply more cycling accidents? Or is there safety-in-number effect in place? Do cyclists behave differently, for example keeping ‘social distance’? Do car drivers behave differently seeing more cyclists around?

ICSC opens a possibility to submit additional contribution on the topic of cycling safety in pandemic time. If you have started (or plan to start) a study related to this, consider sharing your (early) results during the conference.

Please, get in touch with the conference organisers at to discuss your ideas and how they can be presented during the conference.


Special session II: ‘Components of a safe system for cycling’

The session will focus on essential issues related to a safe system for cycling by presenting some major components of such a system. A starting point is the analysis of predicted injury development based on increased cycling in Sweden from a comparative perspective in relation to the sustainability goal for active mobility. Further, the session presents examples and ideas of how various traffic safety factors like infrastructure design, speed management and protective devices can mitigate and prevent accidents and severe injuries for cyclists.

The session is organised in close co-operation with the Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket).

The session is chaired by Rugerro Ceci, Safety Advisor at Swedish Transport Administration.
