In spite of the fact that this report presented some important conclusions regarding bike safety, it was not without criticism. The research, for example was too narrow in scope. It focused on the physical effects of cycling and not the mental benefits that regular exercise could have. Incomplete data in some countries prevented comparisons between them, which would have allowed valuable insight into the best ways to encourage safe cycling practices among different populations. In addition, more robust methodologies could have helped gather more information about stakeholders during the process. The results would then be more accurate and reliable to use in determining how best to move forward with the goals that were set today.
