How to design a cycling city

 

London Cyclist magazine (which goes out to LCC members) featured a preview of the International Cycling Infrastructure Best Practice Study in the December 2014 issue written by one of its authors, John Dales.

You can now read the full 160 pages  complete with a list of the key factors that are present in cities where cycling has taken off. The study is based on visits to 16 leading cycling cities located on several continents.

 If you don’t have time for the full version and the London Cyclist article is not enough to satisfy your appetite BikeBiz has posted a useful summary.

The study provided input for the recently published new edition of the London Cycle Design Standard which you can now find on the Transport for London website .
