Cycling research

Former Cycling Campaign member Paul Rosen, now at the Science & Technology Studies Unit at the University of York, has published a review of research on cycling. The review’s objective was to determine how well the research base has been supporting national priorities to increase cycling since the publication in 1996 of the National Cycling Strategy (NCS). Rosen’s review advises the Department for Transport to adopt a strategic research programme for cycling, covering the full range of research priorities identified in the NCS.

More information, including a searchable database of all the projects that were identified in the review, is available at www.york.ac.uk/org/satsu/Projects/whitehall.
