Abstract

Senior bicycle riders have special safety and injury prevention needs. They are at greater risk for injury and mortality. Very few educational materials have been developed to assist this group in improving their riding abilities and preventing injury to themselves. This article reviews the risks encountered by older bicyclists, discusses injury revention, and describes the development of an educational video developed especially for senior riders consistent with the goals of the National Bicycle Safety Conference.
