CYCLING: measures, modelling and monitoring

This 1-day course provides an overview of cycling measures, an understanding of the quantitative modelling of cycling, what this tells us about the determinants of cycle use, together with practical advice for monitoring cycling.


An overview of the different measures which can be used to increase the levels of cycling is followed by detailed coverage of mode choice modelling in relation to cycling. Within the UK policy context, important determinants of cycle use are also identified, plus the effect of changes in these determinants. The course examines potential interventions, how these might be valued by users and the lessons to be learnt from the European experience. It also includes a session covering good practice for monitoring, particularly using ATC counters. The heart of the course is the workshop session which considers relevant measures and the extent to which these can stimulate additional cycle use. These considerations develop the ability to set robust local targets for increased cycle use.


Outline programme


• Review of measures to promote cycle use including engineering, planning and other interventions
• Transport demand and mode choice modelling applied to cycling
• Monitoring cycling - best practice in using automated counters and other data collection methods
• Workshop on setting robust local targets for cycle use and monitoring these targets


The course will be held in ITS training facilities at the University of Leeds, Leeds LS2 9JT. The fee includes learning materials, lunch and refreshments during the course.  The course can also be delivered as bespoke or in-company training on a date and at a location chosen by the client organisation. 

The course benefits from the considerable expertise of research-active staff from ITS, the University of Bolton and Sky High Traffic Surveys.  For further details please visit the ITS website or for an informal discussion about the course, its content and relevance to your work please contact the course leaders - John Parkin (Tel: 01204 903 027, email [email protected]) or Matthew Page (0113 343 1789, [email protected]).
