BICYCLE-RELATED INJURIES AMONG YOUNG CHILDREN RELATED TO AGE AT DEBUT OF CYCLING

The study's aim was to analyze if the risk of bicycle related injuries was related to age at debut of bicycling. Random samples of 1200 children were drawn from the official registry of inhabitants in the city of Bergen, Norway. This study shows that age at debut of cycling is an important factor for the risk of getting a bicycle related injury during the first two years of cycling. There is less risk of getting injured during this period if the children wait to start cycling until, for example, 6 or 7 years instead of at 4 or 5 years.
