A Comparison of Survey Methods for Bicycle Research

This paper compares responses to identical questions asked by convenience and intercept samples of bicyclists.  The analysis suggests that the use of different sampling methods do result in statistically different responses to identical questions compared in this analysis.

Bicycle headway modeling and its applications

This paper puts forward a novel composite headway model for bicycle flows. Based on a working definition of a bicycle headway, the model assumes that the headway is the sum of the so-called empty zone (the minimum headway that a cyclist will have with respect to the bicycle he or she is following) and the free headway (the additional headway that cyclists maintain when they are not following).

The Ability to Ride a Bicycle Prevents Reduced Social Function in Older Adults With Mobility Limits

The health benefits of bicycling in older adults with mobility limitation (ML) are unclear. We investigated ML and functional capacity of older cyclists by evaluating their instrumental activities of daily living (IADL), intellectual activity, and social function.

Understanding active commuting

This chapter is part of a larger natual experimental study of the Cambridgeshre Guided Busway and looks at a variety of methods to improve our understanding of active commuting. It focuses on understanding the baseline patterns of commuting behaviour, the relationships between active commuting and aspects of health and well-being, and the ways in which the social and physical environment shape active commuting.
