Book Chapter

City cycling spaces for welcoming and engaging all ages


This chapter reviews ways in which cycling spaces can be designed to provide family oriented, community-building, social and physical activity as well as an additional mode of transportation. It argues that, for these designs to be realized, there first needs to be understanding and agreement among decision makers and stakeholders that city space is more than just mobility space and that a more sophisticated approach is needed to think about how current mobility space is utilized. This includes considering how such spaces could better function to promote generational inclusion and social belonging.
