Abstract

•This paper investigates cycling injury risk in relation to exposure, in London.•Study benefits from spatially detailed models of cyclist and motor traffic volume.•Residential or 20 mph streets have lower injury odds than other street types.•Bus lanes have no impact on cycling injury odds, after controlling for other factors.•Increasing cyclist and reducing motor traffic volumes or speed limits reduces risks.
