Not too surprising. Speculating from the armchair, the vast majority of reportable injuries are crashes by the cyclist sans motor vehicle. The vast majority of cyclist fatalities involve a motor vehicle. So if motor vehicles are traveling less or behaving more safely for some other reason, we would see an improvement in cycling fatalities. As for injuries, some of it may be "safer cars". But I suspect that as cycling becomes more popular, that there is an inherant difference in new cyclists in that they are relatively more risk adverse and consequently take less risks.
