Baseline data was collected in 2017 for the first INTERACT study site – Victoria, British Columbia—where we are examining the impact of an All Ages and Abilities (AAA) Bike Network. Over 300 participants, who ride a bicycle at least occasionally, were recruited for the 5-year longitudinal study.
The goal of the interviews was to gather descriptions of individual experiences of urban contexts, in general and with respect to the AAA bike network. Open-ended questions fell under the themes of neighborhood, well-being, social connectivity, facilitators and barriers to bicycling, and the intervention (AAA bike network). We invited participants to talk about their neighborhood, daily routines, social activities, travel modes, cycling behavior, and what they knew and how they felt about the AAA bike network.
