Europe's most dangerous city for cyclists

Nicolas Kayser-Bril has collected data on fatalties and casualties in several Euroepan cities to determine in wich ones cyclists are more likely to get hurt.

Data journalist and EDJNet’s contributor Nicolas Kayser-Bril has collected data on fatalties and casualties in five large Euroepan cities to determine in wich ones cyclists are more likely to get hurt.

Berlin appears to be the most dangerous city (although Amsterdam, not included in the survey, also has a bad reputation) for cyclists, also due to the higher number of daily rides (360,000 against 70,000 in Paris for example).

We liked this work because it shows among others that the quality of data on urban cycling vary remarkably from one city and country to another, just like data on injuries and what is considered as a “serious injury”, making it difficult to compare cities – something Kayser-Bril explains extensively. We also liked it because all the data gathered by Nicolas is available on Github.
