Transcript of cycle BOOM Swansea Dec 2013
A study to understand cycling amongst the older population in the UK and how this affects independence, health and wellbeing
Many public open spaces in the UK
are not inclusive for older cyclists
Older cyclists are vastly
under-represented in the UK
Cycling may contribute to physical & mental health and to wellbeing through:
Access to activities outside the home
A sense of independence and control
Opportunities for social engagement
But there is little understanding of cycling by older people or existing design guidance
Understanding how the design of our towns and cities, and bicycle technology is shaping older people's experience of cycling
Creating a toolkit for policy makers and practitioners to enable more cycling by older people
Knowledge of cycling in older age and its impact
Success in encouraging cycling in two European cities
Older people about cycling in their lives
Older people on routine cycle journeys
Electric bikes and their benefits compared with regular cycling
People aged 50-59 and 60+
: Professor Colin Pooley
Developing more inclusive neighbourhoods, towns and cities
Developing a more sustainable and inclusive transport system
Designing products suited to the growing market of older people
Developing novel research methods and new understanding of cycling
'For too long the focus has been on advising individuals to take an active approach to life. There has been far too little consideration of the social and physical environments that enable such activity to be taken.'
