As a part of a series of 4 analyses looking at crashes involving injured adult cyclists in Berkshire, this looks at the ‘When’ dimension.
Unsurprisingly given the urban nature of most of Berkshire, the majority of crashes (77%) happen in 20 and 30 limits with only 5% on high-speed roads. Only 24% of collisions happen away from junctions with T-Junctions being the most common places for crashes to happen with over a third of all incidents.
Cyclists crashing in Berkshire are on average 4.7km from home (as the crow flies) but that figure varies considerably around the county. Cyclists crashing in Slough are only 2.9km from home with Reading, Bracknell Forest and Wokingham being only slightly father away.
