Higher temperatures lead to more bicyclist deaths, injuries
Warmer temperatures mean more bicyclists will return to the road, and together, motorists and bicyclists must share the road, according to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety and Minnesota Department of Transportation.
In the last five years (2008-12), 44 bicyclists died on Minnesota roads and 4,599 were injured. During this period, more than half of bicyclist deaths (24) and 60 percent of injuries (2,852) occurred between June and September.
