right-hook, where a car turns right in front of the cyclist headed straight. lf cars do not pass, such a conflict becomes impossible. Riding in the center of the lane also enhances cyclist visibility. Second, speeds within a roundabout are low. They are typically between 10-20 mph. So a cyclist would probably be travelling at the prevailing speed anyway. Bike lanes are specifically not supposed to exist within roundabouts for this reason. Pedestrians should use the crosswalks at a roundabout if they are marked. In areas where crosswalks are not designated, how should pedestrians cross such an intersection?
