Diversifying and normalising cycling in London, UK: an exploratory study on the influence of infrastructure

Publisher: 
Journal of Transport and Health
Publication date: 
November 2016
Abstract: 

This article examines the extent to which protected infrastructure is associated with greater diversity and normalisation of cycling. In the UK, cyclists are predominantly male and often wear distinctive cycle clothing rather than everyday clothes. This is not the case in higher-cycling countries such as the Netherlands and Germany. It has been argued that the UK's demographic skewing may be partly due to poor quality infrastructure which can be off-putting for many, but particularly for women, children and older people.

Impact of offering cycle training in schools upon cycling behaviour: a natural experimental study

Publisher: 
International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity
Publication date: 
March 2016
Abstract: 

Background: England’s national cycle training scheme, ‘Bikeability’, aims to give children in England the confidence to cycle more. There is, however, little evidence on the effectiveness of cycle training in achieving this. We therefore examined whether delivering Bikeability was associated with cycling frequency or with independent cycling.

Cambridgeshire ‘floating bus stops’ interaction analysis

Publisher: 
Sustrans
Publication date: 
December 2015
Abstract: 

Cambridgeshire County Council (CCC) are implementing a series of ‘floating bus stops’ within the Cambridgeshire area. Due to this new planned infrastructure, CCC are interested in establishing whether the new ‘floating bus stops’ designs are generating any unsafe interactions between road users, in particular cyclists and pedestrians. To do this, two sites where ‘floating bus stops’ are already in place were monitored: Huntingdon Road and Hills Road.
