Inspirational handbook for the design of cycle infrastructure
Experiments with new cycling services are appearing in cities worldwide. ‘The bicycle’ is of great value to mobility, the environment, and health. Moreover, thanks to the bike, there are enormous opportunities for spatial quality, economy, and quality of life, in particularly in cities.
Cycle Infrastructure is an inspiring handbook for anyone who engages in developing, designing, and promoting high-quality bicycle routes. The book makes a case for cycling infrastructure as an integral design challenge rather than a purely traffic-engineering task. The aim is to exploit the full potential of bicycles for the built and unbuilt environment.
The book includes international examples of cycle infrastructure, interviews with the creators of leading bike routes, and looks ahead to future innovations. A Spanish version of the book, Cicloinfraestructura (2016), was published in Colombia.
