A good, quick read with an illustrative graph at the end.

Probably not a groundbreaking discovery for most of us, but major roads with no bike lanes and parked cars are dangerous, while cycling roads are not. :D

What was new to me was this:
"The research will provide weighty evidence for advocates of dedicated bike infrastructure precisely because transportation engineers have long believed the exact opposite to be true. For years, they’ve counter-intuitively argued that you’re actually better off learning to ride alongside cars than having your own bike lane."

I think that being able to bike with cars is a good skill to have, but I think we'd all prefer to have a cycling lane if presented with the option.;)
