A growing number of stakeholders and authorities recognize the benefits of cycling. Much is known already about the nature of cycling and the factors that influence it. The goal of this book is to bridge the gap between research and practice by allowing for that vital transfer of knowledge between researchers and practitioners. Each chapter provides a summary of important outcomes for policy making and outlines the lessons that practitioners can learn from the research. Cycling promotion can only be successful as part of integrated planning approaches. This introduction provides an overview of the research field covered by the book.
