CARSP 2019 Abstract

Aim: To assess injury outcomes and circumstances related to child bicyclist injuries in three urban centres across Canada

Conclusions: Additional child specific information on bicyclist injuries from this study can inform the development of primary prevention interventions. By looking at the distribution and type of injuries sustained we will be able to better provide an evidence base for recommendations to create safer built environments for child bicyclists while encouraging bicycling behavior across Canada
