Bicycles back on the road, fatalities down in Minnesota


Bicyclists are back on the road, and together, motorists and bicyclists must share the road, according to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety and Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT).

From 2011 to 2013, 18 bicyclists died on Minnesota roads and 2,634 were injured. Of those injuries, 155 or 6 percent were serious injuries. This is a decline from the previous three-year period. From 2008-2010, 32 bicyclists were killed and 2,836 bicyclists were injured.
