Is Bike Sharing Contagious? Modeling its Effects on System Membership and General Population Cycling
This paper presents new evidence about the role of bike share systems in travel behavior based conceptually on diffusion of innovation theory. The authors hypothesize that bike share systems have spatial contagion or spillover effects on the (H1) propensity of individuals to adopt bike share and (H2) propensity to bicycle within the general population.

Encouraging Halmstad drivers to use e-bikes
The e-cyclist project was aimed at avid car users who wanted to start cycling. Participants were given a bike and helmet to borrow for a period of time. Some 100 people participated in the 2014 project and 300 people in the 2015 project. The participants received health coaching via a blog and a health expert, and also contributed on a joint internet forum. The computer display on the bikes recorded the kilometres and the cyclist who had cycled the most was then voted as Cyclist of the Month and Cyclist of the Year.

Bikesharing and Bicycle Safety
This study looks at bikesharing safety from qualitative and quantitative perspectives. Through a series of four focus groups, bikesharing usage and safety was discussed with bikesharing members and nonmembers in the Bay Area. Nationwide experts from a variety of fields evaluated these thoughtson bikesharing and safety. Finally, researchers conducted an analysis of bicycle and bikesharing activity data, as well as bicycle and bikesharing collisions to evaluate injury rates associated with bikesharing when compared with benchmarks of personal bicycling.
