Abstract: 

Transport Focus represents the interests of users of England’s motorways and major ‘A’ roads (the Strategic Road Network or SRN) and therefore wanted to understand the experiences and needs of cyclists, pedestrians, equestrians and carriage drivers who travel along SRN ‘A’ roads or need to cross any part of the SRN.

Future Thinking was commissioned to study these audiences, exploring not only their attitudes towards and interactions with the SRN but to also gauge views of the best means by which to achieve a robust future measurement of SRN satisfaction for these groups.

Performance of Municipal Cycling Policies in Medium-Sized Cities in the Netherlands since 2000

Abstract: 

With its high cycling mode share, the Netherlands is often seen as a best practice for cycling policies. However, there is little insight into the drivers behind this phenomenon, specifically which policy interventions increased cycling rates and which did not. The knowledge gap on the effec- tiveness of cycling policies seriously limits the potential for learning from the Dutch experience. This paper will address this gap, by exploring the performance of Dutch cycling policies in 22 medium- sized cities since 2000.

Health, physical inactivity, obesity and cycling

The New Year is traditionally the time when we renounce the excess of the festive season and make resolutions - formal or otherwise - to change our diet and to fit exercise into our busy daily lives. Resolutions that are broken all too often.

Toolbox for Cycle-Friendly Junctions in Amsterdam

Publication date: 
February 2017
Abstract: 

To improve the flow of cycle traffic, measures have to be taken regarding infrastructure and traffic regulations. Infrastructure measures focus on the required physical space, traffic control measures focus on the distribution of green and red times. Both types of measures obviously affect each other, but they can certainly prove their worth, in isolation.

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.
