As part of a larger study of bicycling safety, the bicyclist's exposure to risk is measured in terms of the number of times each of 851 functions are encountered. Data from a roadside census survey show that bicyclists are forced into using major highways both by the design of the road system and by the bicyclist's preferences in route choice.
