The growing interest in cycling in Australia and New Zealand, as in other parts of the world, is underpinned by three major concerns: health and fitness, congestion and liveability, pollution and climate change.
Australasian researchers, practitioners, policy makers and community members are engaged in a global discussion on the role of cycling in addressing these concerns. Contributors to (this) book report on and extend this discussion as they explore the insights generated locally and internationally on the past, present and future of cycling.
The focus of the first half of the book is largely on the current engagement with cycling, challenges faced by existing and would-be cyclists and the issues cycling might address. The second half of the book is concerned with strategies and processes of change. Contributors working from different ontological positions reflect on changing socio-spatial relations to enable the broadest possible participation in cycling.
From the 'Introduction'
'Today I was made aware of a new publication from Adelaide Uni rounding up a whole bunch of research into bike issues, laws, safety, promotion etc. etc. A superb read and I commend it to you. (...) Also great discussions on share paths, such as at Linear Park.
You can download a full version at the link, which is a nice touch from the Uni as this is the result of a considerable amount of work. Well worth a read for those interested in the subject.'
