Cycling as a mode of transportation or leisure activity has many benefits, not only for the individual who rides a bike, but also for a society at large. However, due to a lack of personal protection and/or suitable infrastructure, cyclists are vulnerable on the road. This section provides access to TIRF’s research on this topic.

“Tackling safety issues requires solving complex problems and TIRF’s ability to provide forums to connect government, business, industry, traffic safety agencies, and non-profit organizations helps to identify bold and multi faceted solutions to some of our most persistent road safety issues. The ability to bring together stakeholders in road safety provides an opportunity for collaboration and connection that would otherwise not exist.”
