Transcript of Nationaal Fietscongress NL Keynote

Dr Tim Jones
Faculty of Technology Design & the Environment

Cyclists’ identities and practices have been shaped by acclimatization to current hostile cycling conditions to the extent that they sometimes struggle to understand why more people don’t cycle. And in so doing, they inadvertently perpetuate their identity as part of a ‘velomobile elite’.
To develop a better understanding of how the design of the built environment and technology shapes older peoples engagement with, and experience of cycling, and how this affects their independent mobility, health and wellbeing.

important indicator species of any just velomobile society.

develop a series of recommendations for various institutions to improve opportunities for older cycling;

formulate an urban design vocabulary for cycling and tool to assist designers attend to the experiential, rather than just the instrumental, components of cycling*
