Book Description

This book explores the reasons for difficulties in making cycling mainstream in many cultures, despite its claims for being one of the most sustainable forms of transport. The topic is looked at from the varying perspectives of people, the environment and the economy with multi-disciplinary contributions from the UK, Denmark, the Netherlands, Sweden, Spain, Germany, Australia, China and USA. Initially, it examines the cultural development of cycling in countries with high use and the differences in use between different sub-groups of the population. It then explores issues of urban form, and the attributes of the network and the system for appropriately accommodating cycle users. Cross-cultural issues are once again investigated through an exposition of research in developing countries and the environment in which scheme promoters and users operate. The book draws to a close with an exploration of state-of-the-art thinking on demand model.

Product Description


The book 'Cycling and Sustainability' is a very fine collection putting light on the cycling-society nexus - [it] makes a substantial contribution to our understanding of this fascinating and important mode of transport. Ole B. Jensen, Aalborg University, Denmark This is a valuable collection of essays by leading researchers which provides a comprehensive view of recent research on the role of cycling as a means of everyday travel. Colin G. Pooley, Lancaster University, UK A finely crafted volume of state-of-the-art thinking and research about cycling. It links the bicycle with people and society, the environment and the economy within a sustainable and realistic context. Valuable reading for those already switched on to the benefits of cycling, or wanting to understand why cycling offers so much potential. Chris Rissel, The University of Sydney, Australia
