Call for papers for the special issue in Transportation Research Interdisciplinary Perspectives:
This special issue leverages scholarship on cycling and uses the bicycle as a lens to explore how users can play a role in accommodating (or rejecting) innovations in sustainable transportation. From debates over definitions of the bicycle as a physical object to exploring practices and meaning of cycling, concepts such as smart cities, socio-technical change, and mobility transitions are explored critically from user, industry, regulatory and governance perspectives. We invite contributions from scholars from diverse disciplines, including but not limited to, urban design, history of technology, transport planning, mobility studies, politics, and sociology. We encourage multidisciplinary perspectives to explore the relationships between urban planning, cycling and sustainable transport.
