Olympic Gold Medallist, Ryan Bailey, recently declared that he would never ride his bike on the road again given the significant number of injuries and deaths suffered by bicycle riders.
Bailey is married with young children and has won gold medals in track cycling at the Athens Olympics in 2004.
With the boom in cycling in recent years, partly inspired by the victory of Cadel Evans in the Tour de France in 2011, there has been a significant increase in the number of accidents involving bicycle riders.
Shared cycle and pedestrian paths are more crowded and the same applies for roads.
At Bradford Legal, we have always been concerned about the dangers posed by riding on WA roads.
The Government has been slow to address the issue as most WA roads have not been built with designated cycle lanes.
We continue to represent a number of bicycle riders who have often suffered very serious injuries in accidents.
