Riding bicycles has become more than a form of exercise. For most Californians, riding a bike has become their preferred mode of transportation. The warm and dry climate throughout the majority of the year allows residents to safely ride their bicycles for many reasons, such as going to work, shopping, and exercising. However, as popular as bicycles may be, they can also result in serious accidents, especially when the accident involves an automobile.

- Head injuries, such as a traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injuries
- Severe cuts and bruises
- Internal bleeding
