This paper is by John Pucher and Ralph Buehler of the Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University. Pucher and Buehler investigate how bicycling can be made a safe, convenient, and practical way to get around cities. The policies and programs needed to generate high overall levels of cycling are the same policies and programs that encourage a wide spectrum of social groups to cycle: extensive systems of separate cycling facilities, intersection modifications and priority bicycle traffic signals, traffic calming of neighborhoods, safe and convenient bike parking, coordination and integration of cycling with public transport, traffic education and training for both cyclists and motorists, and traffic laws that favor cyclists and pedestrians. This paper examines successful policies in the Netherlands, Denmark, and Germany, which have achieved impressive levels of cycling among almost all social groups. For comparison, the paper portrays the marginal status of cycling in the UK and USA, where only about one percent of trips are by bike. Published: 6 July 2007.

This paper by John Pucher and Ralph Buehler, and published in Transport Policy in 2006, explores why cycling levels are three times higher in Canada than in the U.S. despite colder climates. Higher residential density, lower incomes, and higher costs of owning and driving a car are a few of the explanations considered.
