WP1: Cycling behaviour and its preconditions Thomas Sick Nielsen Trine Agervig Carstensen Ezra Goldman Why do people cycle and how do motivations and lifestyles interact with urban form and design? Main questions and methodological considerations.
Analysis of cycling and mobility based on a tailormade survey.
Interviews with selected respondents – including interviews on the background of GPS registrations of cycling behaviour and interviews of persons in ’life phase’ transition from young to adults where cycling tend to decrease.
How can we generally assess the character of the urban environment and its conduciveness to cycling?
Population density, job density
Structure of the road network and characteristics of traffic environment
Path networks (proxy – poor data)
Age of buildings
Accessibility to population, jobs, retail – distance weighted and possibly effort/discomfort weighted (mainly slope).
