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.

Safer Cycling Through Improved Infrastructure

Publisher: 
American Journal of Public Health
Publication date: 
December 2016
Abstract: 

It is crucial to improve cycling safety in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s injury statistics Web site (WISQARS) reports that in 2014, there were 902 cyclist fatalities and 35 206 serious cyclist injuries (requiring hospi- talization). The United States has much higher fatality and serious injury rates per kilometer cycled than comparable high- income countries.

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.

Cycle Traffic and the Strategic Road Network

Publisher: 
Highways England
Publication date: 
October 2016
Abstract: 

 

The Strategic Road Network (SRN) makes up a small proportion of the national highway network but has an important role to play in supporting journeys made by cycle as referenced in the Highways England Cycling Strategy.

This document provides requirements and advice relevant to the SRN for the planning and design of infrastructure for cycle traffic and is intended to be used by highway design professionals. 

Key changes to the Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions (TSRGD) that affect cycling and walking - TIN41 Revised

Publisher:

Publication date: 
April 2016
Abstract: 

This note summarises the key changes in the revised Traffic Signs Regulations and General Directions (TSRGD) 20161 that affect cycling and walking. It has been compiled from an initial reading of the document but at this early stage it is likely that there are some omissions and it should be regarded as work in progress; we invite comments, suggestions, questions, insights and feedback2.

In addition, DfT have indicated that they will be providing some accompanying advice and there will be an update of the Traffic Signs Manual in due course.

Analysing cycling as a social practice: An empirical grounding for behaviour change

Publisher: 
Elsevier
Publication date: 
December 2014
Abstract: 

Despite significant national and local efforts over the last decade to stimulate uptake of cycling in the UK, levels of cycling (particularly utility cycling) remain at around 2% of journeys. Understanding of cycling behaviour and subsequent development of interventions has typically been undertaken using an individualist approach, often relying on psychologically based models of behaviour.
