Note Editore

This volume addresses key contemporary aspects in cycling policy, practice and research. Cycling has seen a sharp increase in scientific and policy attention in the past decade. The amount of research has surged over the past couple decades. Also, levels of cycling have increased substantially in many countries and cities, and many areas have seen increases in infrastructure investments. In addition, the last decade has seen innovations in bicycle technology, in particularly the rise of electric-assist (e-bikes) and dock-less bike sharing schemes.

This volume reviews the state of the art on cycling from various angles. As such it explores planners' (engineers', policy makers') provisions for cycling, of cyclists' (and non-cyclists') travel behaviour, and resulting consequences for individuals and society. One focus is on demand-side aspects, including the use of bicycles and their users including patterns and trends in cycling, determinants of cycling, and modelling of cycling. Another focus is on impacts of cycling, such as emissions, safety aspects, as well as changes during the COVID pandemic.

  • Contemporary overview of key aspects in cycling research and bicycle planning
  • A focus on design for cycling, behavior of cyclists and consequences of cycling

Prof. Dr. Eva Heinen is a Professor in transport at the TU Dortmund, and a Professor II at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. Previously, she was full Professor at the University of Leeds, Institute for Transport Studies (ITS), worked at the University of Cambridge in the Medical Research Council (MRC) Epidemiology and Centre of Diet and Activity Research (CEDAR), as well as worked at Delft University of Technology. Prior to that, she was an Assistant Professor of Infrastructure Planning and Mobility at the Department of Spatial Planning and Environment at the University of Groningen. She received her PhD in 2011 from Delft University of Technology on bicycle commuting. Before her academic career, she worked at the Ministry of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment in the Netherlands, the Netherlands Institute of Spatial Research (RPB), and the Transport Department of the Dutch Embassy in Berlin. Eva is a transport research scientist with an interest in travel behaviour change. In her research she seeks to test causal relationships and employ a variety of research methods, both quantitative and qualitative. Her research focusses on: Determinants of active travel, particularly cycling; Behavioural change; 'Soft factors' (such as identity and attitudes) and individual transport choices; Evaluating intervention in the built environment on travel behaviour; Variability and stability of behaviour; Transport and Health; Safety and security. Eva has experience with longitudinal data collections and analyses, natural experimental studies and international qualitative research. She has published a wide variety of papers with co-authors from all over the world in transport, public health, and urban planning journals. Her research is empirically driven and combines different fields including transport, public health and urban planning.
Dr. Thomas Götschi is an internationally recognized expert in sustainable transportation research with a focus on active transportation and related health aspects. He specializes in issues around data collection and quantitative methods. In over ten years of research he has worked on and led a diversity of projects, including developments of data collection apps and tools, innovative travel survey designs, analysis of travel behavior data, and modeling travel related impacts on carbon emissions and health. The most recent projects include Physical Activity through Sustainable Transport Approaches (PASTA), a travel and health survey in over 10,000 Europeans; World Health Organization's (WHO) online impact calculator Health Economic Assessment Tool for walking and cycling (HEAT); Mobility in Switzerland (MOBIS), an experiment on mobility pricing in over 3,000 subjects using smartphone tracking data, and E-biking in Switzerland (EBIS), a study on carbon emission reductions through ebiking. Dr. Götschi is an environmental scientist (MS) and epidemiologist (PhD) by training. He is currently affiliated with the University of Oregon, School of Planning, Public Policy and Management, and also works for the WHO, leading the tool development of HEAT.
