Bicycle Safety

Minnesotans want to feel safe and comfortable when bicycling, whether to meet everyday needs or enjoy the state's many resources.

Approximately eight bicyclists are killed annually—that's one bicyclist killed every six weeks. One in every fifty people killed in a motor vehicle crash is a bicyclist (based on 2015 to 2019 data).

Safety is a universal issue. Whether you walk, bike, or drive, everyone plays a role in keeping our roadways safe. Make responsible decisions, be alert, and have respect for each other. In addition, there are a variety of resources when planning streets that work for all people and modes of travel.
