Abstract: 

Research on cycle infrastructure preferences generally suggests a preference for off-road cycle infrastructure and segregation from motor traffic, among both existing cyclists and non-cyclists. However, studies have so far not explored how the presence of children might shape adults’ attitudes to cycle infrastructure. Similarly, studies on the determinants of child cycling have not as yet looked in depth at the impact of parental attitudes to specific infrastructure types.

This paper reports on an online survey about how people’s preferences might vary, depending on whether they were making a cycle journey alone, travelling with a child, or considering whether to let an older child travel alone. Respondents were also asked whether they thought each of ten infrastructure scenarios were suitable for ‘most people’. The paper discusses findings from the online survey, identifying changes in preferences and investigating subgroup variation. The presence of children makes a major difference to people’s willingness to cycle in the more challenging situations. There is substantial consensus across subgroups over the extent to which the various examples are suitable for cycling with children.

Research that shows Bikeability training does give children more confidence to negotiate roads, but doesn't appear to lead to any increase in cycling frequency among children.

Promoting walking and cycling

Publisher: 
Policy Press, University of Bristol
Publication date: 
August 2013
Abstract: 

Promoting walking and cycling proposes solutions to one of the most pressing problems in contemporary British transport planning. The need to develop more sustainable urban mobility lies at the heart of energy and environmental policies and has major implications for the planning of cities and for the structure of economy and society. However, most people feel either unable or unwilling to incorporate travel on foot or by bike into their everyday journeys. This book uses innovative quantitative and qualitative research methods to examine in depth, and in an international and historical context, why so many people fail to travel in ways that are deemed by most to be desirable. It proposes evidence-based policy solutions that could increase levels of walking and cycling substantially. This book is essential reading for planners and policy makers who are developing and implementing transport policies at both national and local levels, plus researchers and students in the fields of mobility, transport, sustainability and urban planning.
