Cycle-ology 201: New Strategies for Increasing Bicycle Usage and Mobility

This session will focus on design and policy strategies intended to expand the attractiveness of cycling to additional demographics. Projects from around the United States and internationally will emphasize the concept of low-stress cycling and how it relates to safety and mobility and will also touch on some of the opportunities to increase cycling activity by linking with other modes, such as transit.
Learning Objectives
  • Examine common reasons associated with low bicycle usage in certain regions and contexts
  • Understand the basic elements of low-stress bicycling
  • Identify strategies to leverage existing transportation systems (e.g., transit) to increase bicycle usage
