Bicycle Research Team


To improve bicycling opportunities through research and service.


To conduct research projects pertaining to bicycling knowledge, processes and cycling-related systems. Our research is not limited by physical boundaries, and we work to increase knowledge associated with the community, economic and social costs and benefits of bicycling within the local, regional and global areas.

Bike sharing programs, bike-friendly cities and criteria, trail impact, the social, economic and cultural impacts of biking, factors that influence cycling, community and commuter relations and other areas where bicyclists interact with the community.
