John Pucher is a professor in the Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University. For over a decade Dr. Pucher’s research has focused on walking and biking for transportation. He recently wrote a 3-part series for Momentum Magazine titled “Cycling for Everyone”. If you’re interested in hearing from one of the top experts in the field on how to increase bicycle use, these articles are well worth a read.
Here’s a quote from Part 1:
“Cycling remains a marginal mode of transport in most North American cities because it is widely viewed as requiring special equipment and training, physical fitness, and the courage and willingness to battle with motor vehicles on streets without separate bike lanes or paths. Cycling is a mainstream mode of urban travel in Northern Europe precisely because it does not require any of those things.” —John Pucher
That just about sums it up.
