This talk will present the results of a multi-center case-crossover study of the influence of route design on cycling injuries. It will describe how the study design controls for both exposure to risk and personal and trip characteristics, to allow the focus to be on infrastructure. Cycling injuries in British Columbia will be put in context, by comparing them to injuries incurred via other modes of travel, to cycling injuries in other countries, and to the health benefits of cycling.
