Abstract: 

This paper investigates the place of utility cycling (cycling as a means of transport rather than as a sport or leisure activity) under urban modernism in the UK. In many western contexts the dominant feature of urban modernism was its emphasis on accommodating private vehicles to the neglect of other forms of mobility. The result was the production of a ‘car-system’ with significant change to urban and rural environments.

Strategic Cycling Analysis - Identifying future cycling demand in London

Abstract: 

The Mayor has asked Transport for London to put the Healthy Streets Approach at the heart of its decision making. Set out in ‘Healthy Streets for London’, this approach is a system of policies and strategies to help Londoners use cars less and walk, cycle and use public transport more often.

To achieve this it is important to plan a longer-term and coherent cycle network across London in a way that will complement walking and public transport priorities. This document provides a robust, analytical framework to help do this.

Abstract: 

Too many people in the UK feel they have no choice but to travel in ways that are dangerous, unhealthy, polluting and costly, not just to their own wallets but also to the public purse. Urgent action is required to address Britain’s chronic levels of obesity, heart disease, air pollution and congestion if we are to catch up with other countries in the developed world.

Gearing up - An investigation into safer cycling in London

Abstract: 

London has a long way to go to achieve the Mayor’s objective of a cycling revolution. Only 2 per cent of journeys in London are made by bicycle. This falls short of other UK cities like Bristol, Cambridge and Hull, and it is significantly less than the Netherlands – where 26 per cent of journeys are made by bicycle – and Copenhagen, which sees 36 per cent of work and study-related trips cycled.
