A Guide to Inclusive Cycling (2nd Edition)

Publisher: 
Wheels for Wellbeing
Publication date: 
June 2019
Abstract: 

This guide does not claim to be the answer to everything about inclusive cycling. Nor is it a highly technical set of design guidelines. Rather, it is somewhere in between: an accessible but thorough guide on the basic principles of inclusive cycling. We hope that it will be a useful tool for local authorities, transport bodies, civil engineers, academics, cycling organisations, disability charities, campaign groups and, of course, Disabled cyclists themselves.

20 Good Reasons for Street Transformations in Neighbourhoods

Publisher: 
EU Metamorphosis Project
Publication date: 
April 2019
Abstract: 

The concept of roads has been around for a long time, much longer than we have had cars. In the past, the space between the houses in our cities has been used for a variety of activities and purposes, including work, entertainment, communication, as a marketplace and for transport. Of course, our streets were also the perfect place for children to develop – to play, to argue, to fraternise, to grow up, and to become better adjusted to society. This has been the case for many centuries, but the situation changed radically over the last 60 years.

Sharing Road Space: Drivers and Cyclists as Equal Road Users

Publication date:

Abstract: 

The Government has made a commitment to sustainable transport as part of an integrated transport strategy, encouraging a decrease in the use of cars and increasing the use of cycling as a viable mode of transport. As one element of their transportation policies, local authorities are expected to produce local cycling strategies which include the implementation of improvements to infrastructure and the initiation of traffic management measures.

Disappearing traffic? The story so far

Publisher:

Publication date: 
March 2002
Abstract: 

Reallocating roadspace from general traffic, to improve conditions for pedestrians or cyclists or buses or on-street light rail or other high-occupancy vehicles, is often pre- dicted to cause major traffic problems on neighbouring streets. This paper reports on two phases of research, resulting in the examination of over 70 case studies of roadspace reallocation from eleven countries, and the collation of opinions from over 200 transport professionals worldwide.

Children's independent mobility: a comparative study in England and Germany (1971-2010)

Publisher: 
Policy Studies Institute
Publication date: 
January 2013
Abstract: 

Children’s well-being and health, the quality of the environments they are brought up in and the impact of a range of social and technological developments in the lives of children has been the subject of much research, public concern and debate. This report presents new research on one factor that is affected by (and affects) these issues – children’s independent mobility. This can bedefined as ‘the freedom of children to travel around their own neighbourhood or city without adult supervision’ (Tranter and Whitelegg, 1994).

The Netherlands is a country of bikes. We have a population of around 17 million people, and almost 23 million bicycles!

So, cycling rules!

Creating Enjoyable Cities - Low Traffic Neighbourhoods

Publisher: 
Christopher Martin
Publication date: 
February 2019
Abstract: 

The following guide offers my thoughts on how we can better shape cities around communities and people, both in emerging cities where this issue is of critical importance, and in developed cities. All cities need to offer the advantages of urban living to more and more people, but have to do so in a way that is best for people, best for the city, and best for society as a whole. Shaping cities around low-traffic neighbourhoods is key to creating inclusive, sustainable, and enjoyable places.

Cycling in the City: A Compendium of International Practice

Publisher: 
Urban Movement
Publication date: 
May 2013
Abstract: 

This document aims simply to collect in one place a range of urban cycle design guidance, for features great and small, from different countries. We looked up what Compendiummeans, and we’ve tried to adhere to the following definition: “A concise, yet comprehensive, compilation of a body of knowledge.” What we wanted to do was to help provide a reference resource for fellow practitioners and others involved in making streets more attractive to cycle along.

Enabling Cycling Cities - Ingredients for Success

Publisher: 
Civitas Mimosa
Publication date: 
April 2013
Abstract: 

City administrations across Europe and beyond have made real progress in planning and providing for cycling in their cities. Support both for cycling measures and this book has come from the European Commission. Their support has been most valuable, but this was not the start of their involvement. In 1999, the then European Environment Commissioner, Ritt Bjerregard wrote the following foreword to their publication ‘Cycling: The way ahead for towns and cities’:
