This paper is concerned with the modelling of cyclist road traffic crashes by considering the personal attributes, i.e. gender and age of the cyclists. There are 21 different types of variables considered for each crash, which broadly fall into spatial, infrastructure, and environment categories. The study area of Tyne and Wear county in the north-east of England is selected for investigation. Six deep learning-based safety models are constructed using historic crash data. The effectiveness of deep learning methodology for road safety analysis is demonstrated, and it is found that spatial, infrastructural, and environmental conditions affect the safety interactions of a particular cyclist. These variables can be used for determining/predicting safety for a rider at a location. The model can predict age and gender of the rider, which is likely to be the most unsafe based upon the specific input variables. The significant accuracy is obtained for the constructed models with an overall accuracy of 84%. It is hoped that the proposed models can help in better designing of cyclist network, design, and planning, which will contribute to a sustainable transportation system.
