Dutch cyclists rode down the world's first bike path made entirely of discarded plastic this week, in a move aimed at reducing the millions of tonnes wasted every year. The 30-metre (100-ft) cycling path in the 1,300-year-old northern town of Zwolle contains the equivalent of...
To increase levels of biking while improving safety, cities around the world have started building barrier-protected bicycle-exclusive cycle tracks between the sidewalk and the street. With cycle tracks, the unanswered urban planning issues include whether and where to plant street trees and, if planted, whether...
Australia demonstrates a unique spatial pattern whereby approximately half of the population resides within seven kilometres (and eighty-five percent within fifty kilometres) of the coast, and eighty-nine percent live in areas defined as ‘urban’ but that have a relatively low population density. This differs notably...
Beyond the benefits of dockless bike sharing for people’s mobility and health, these services are producing an ever more useful byproduct: journey data, which could be a powerful tool for city planners and policymakers
Crowdsourced data hold great potential in creating metrics which can support city planning.
This report argues that South Australia's cycling assets could be leveraged to grow the SA bike economy - connecting state priorities in tourism to regional development and health. It argues the bike economy could be a ‘smart specialisation’ for the state.
This survey provides data on cycling participation at a national level and allows for estimates of participation for each state and territory, and the capital cities and non-capital areas within each state and territory. It suggests an overall decline in cycling participation since 2011.
These maps draw on data from the Riderlog application. They are organised to show cycling activity in Melbourne organised by time, gender, age, duration, purpose and origin.
Understanding the flows of people moving through the built environment is a vital source of information for the planners and policy makers who shape our cities. Smart phone applications enable people to trace themselves through the city and these data can potentially be then aggregated...
Cycling is seen today as a panacea for many problems facing cities in Australia and the rest of the developed world, including issues of increasing traffic congestion, increasing rates of obesity and volatile oil prices. As a result, governments are increasingly looking to encourage the...
This visualisation provides interactive and synchronised maps and graphs, which allow online data analytics characterising bicycle trips in all Greater Capital Cities in Australia.
