Where to install handles for bicyclists?

A small and inexpensive piece of street furniture can make life for bicyclists easier and more convenient: handles at intersections. There are different design versions on the market, ranging from foot rests (as in Copenhagen ) to simple grab handles (as in Heidelberg ). Different design versions of handles: stand-alone food rests with handle...

Bicycle observatory – why it makes sense

A Bicycle Observatory facilitates continuous measurements of various parameters of cycling mobility. We are familiar with this kind of observatory-based science from other domains, such as astronomy or climatology. Harvey Miller (2017 ) proposed the transfer of observatory-based methods to geographic information and suggested a Geographic Information...

Health effects of active commuting

As part of the GISMO research project, we conducted a clinical trial, in which we investigated the health effects of promotion measures. All results of this study are now published as a special issue in the scientific journal Journal of Medicine & Science in Sports (Impact Factor 3,255). The eight published papers cover the following topics:...

Insights into data usage

The last post provided a brief summary of the current status of cycling data, with regard to data sources, data availability, accessibility and suitability. I expanded these findings in a lecture, which is available in German language on Youtube and finally discussed the topic in a webinar at last week’s virtual AGIT conference with a number of experts...
