Abstract

As argued in our 2008 article “Making Cycling Irresistible”, cycling is probably the most sustainable urban transport mode, feasible not only for short trips but also for medium-distance trips too long to cover by walking (Pucher & Buehler, 2008). Cycling causes virtually no environmental damage, promotes health through physical activity, takes up little space and is economical, both in direct user costs and public infrastructure .
