seen a lot of shoddy cycling

seen a lot of shoddy driving/riding a motorcycle

cyclist+bicycle weight rarely exceeds 130kg, soft and mushy for most part, speed rarely exceeds 20 mph

car weight - circa 1500kg, made from solid metal, speeds often around 50 in 20 mph zones

delivery vans/drop side lorries - anywhere up to 3.5 tonnes, metal all round, speed - depending if they are late to go home after a job, pick a number anywhere from speed limit + 20 mph to maximum speed of said vehicle

which is most likely to kill or injure?
