Improving Bicycle Detection Pavement Marking Symbols to Increase Comprehension at Traffic Signals

Building on previous research with the 9C- 7 bicycle detector marking and blue light detector feedback devices, there are two objectives of this research: 1) do users comprehend the 9C-7 marking and the blue light detector feedback device? 2) Does bicyclist behavior change due to a descriptive bicycle detector marking?

Does cycling infrastructure investment mirror gentrification and privilege in Portland and Chicago

This research assesses the geographic distribution of 8 cycling infrastructure with regard to community demographic characteristics to better assess claims that cycling investment arrives in tandem with incoming populations of privilege or is targeted towards neighborhoods with existing wealth.

Learning from Positive Examples of Cycling Promotion

This chapter seems to highlight the subtle ways in which the storyline of "separation" came to hinder cycling promotion, while at the same time showing how a new coalition of actors argueing for "integration" came to the contest and transformed ideas concerning "separation" in transport policy".
