Is there a report anywhere that covers this? A friend of mine argues that cycling is inherently dangerous on the road and that riding regularly on the road is, therefore, like repeated rounds of Russian roulette with the same gun and eventually you're sure to be hit.
My logical mind sees his point but also raises the question of the influence of experience of riding on roads and how that impacts the rate of accidents and lessens it to a certain statistical minimum (not trending to zero obviously).
Does anyone know of a study into this? A light Googling turned up little of interest.
