Acceptance in numbers? – Determinants of cyclists’ choices on where to cycle in mixed traffic situations

S. Hantschel, B. Schröter, R. GerikeConference room

  • Video observation of 47,009 cyclists on 334 street sides in 13 German cities
  • A binary logistic regression was chosen to explain the likelihood that cyclists ride on the road (acceptance)
  • Acceptance increases with higher bicycle volumes
  • Low speeds and low volumes of motorised traffic have a positive influence on acceptance
  • Road spaces with high attractiveness for cycling also show high acceptance
