Better Biking

Cycling is a male dominated activity in Australia, where twice as many men ride bikes than women. The Sustainable Mobility and Safety Research Group in the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences has been exploring opportunities to increase the proportion of women who cycle. Their research found that increasing women’s engagement in decisions about new bike infrastructure, including protected bike lanes, and financial incentives to expand the use of e-bikes are key to getting more women on the road.
