The aim of this study was to characterize bicycle riders, bicycle-related injuries and utilization of protective equipment among adults (18+ years) in Israel in order to identify higher risk groups. A cross-sectional survey was performed using questionnaires completed by cyclists aged 18 years and older. Data were collected in 10 major bicycling areas in Israel during two weekends in May 2008 and focused on riding characteristics, bicycle-related injuries, and use of protective equipment. Comparisons were performed based on primary type of riding activity - park, on-road and off-road.
