In many ways Dundee is ideal for cycling. Although its hilly north/south terrain will keep you sweating enough to make you fit, its east/west terrain is flat enough for a pleasant and leisurely cycle.
However, the city's cycling infrastructure still has considerable room for improvement. For example, despite investment in lowered kerbs and footways, enhanced pedestrian access and dedicated cycling lanes, accidents remain a cause for concern.
Cyclists remain vulnerable to shortcomings both in infrastructure and in the awareness of other road users around them. For example, according to Transport Scotland there were 729 pedal cycle casualties in Scotland in 2017 (8% less than 2016); this includes 5 fatalities (3 less than 2016).*
