The objective of this study is to strengthen literature about cyclist safety and help prevent bicycle crashes in the future. It looks into the gap about the relation between the obstacle space of cycling infrastructure (that involves the space that is available for cyclists to avoid crashes with the obstacles therein) and the visibility thereof,...

The bicycle production company Accell-group N.V. aims to improve their bicycle assembly lines. The assembly of bicycles requires fastening a large amount of parts using a variety of fastening techniques. In the investigated situation, these assembly operations are performed on an assembly line. The goal of this thesis is to structurally improve...

Recently many bicycle sharing programs have been introduced in cities worldwide. The combined use of shared bicycles and public transport could offer an attractive alternative for private motorised vehicles and could contribute to making cities better accessible and liveable. However, it is unsure whether this combination, especially with urban...

The increasing urbanisation leads to more traffic movements in cities. Since car traffic in particular has a negative impact on the livability in the city, an alternative for car travel should be investigated to discourage car use. A possible alternative for car use could be the integrated bicycle-transit mode. Although more and more research is...

Statistics show that cycling accidents have the biggest (and increasing) contribution to the overall number of hospital visits related to traffic accidents in the Netherlands. In the majority of these cycling accidents, no other road users are involved. Because the majority of the cycling accidents are so-called single vehicle accidents,...

Part of the goal of Europe’s Strategy Vision Zero is to eliminate all severe cycling accidents in Europe by 2030. The majority of cycling accidents are single vehicle accidents; this term indicates the absence of collisions with other road participants and implies a fall of the cyclist. Research has shown that mainly elderly cyclists are victim...

Experimental data were obtained from riding a steer-by-wire bicycle on the open road while perturbing balance with impulsive forces at the seat post (lateral pertubations) as well as perturbing balance with impulsive torques at the steering assembly (steering pertubations). The experiments were conducted at 2.6–5.6 m/s covering both the stable...

In a multimodal network with the bicycle as core, the design of the network is based on the use of the bicycle as access and egress mode. With the bicycle as access and egress mode instead of walking, travellers can travel much larger distances to bus/tram/metro (BTM) stops and train stations while having about the same travel time. This will...

Trials is a subdiscipline of mountain biking that consists of two variants: one practiced with a trials bicycle and one with a trials motorcycle. Though these two disciplines have the same basic requirements, there are clear distinctions in the technical sports gestures that the respective athletes employ. This is due to some fundamental...

In the competitive road race-cycling sport, having a frame that is lighter and aerodynamic, grants a competitive advantage. If we look at the market, the lighter and expensive bicycles are made from carbon where the cheaper models are made out of metal-alloys. This makes the consumer biased towards metal-alloy frames, mostly about the weight. To...

Research and design about the use of bicycles in and around the building. By stimulating cycling it can provide a solution for congestion in dense cities, be an alternative for the car and have 0 emissions but above all positively influence the health and well-being of people. The research and design show how to stimulate movement and how to use...

The objective of this research is to identify the passive response of the rider’s body to translational and rotational random perturbations. A custom made bicycle mock-up equipped with a system of sensors has been developed, capable of measuring the linear accelerations, angular velocity and the rider’s force responses in all translational axes...

Nowadays the city of São Paulo has to deal with a lot of traffic jams. Extending the road network is no option and the public transport network cannot keep up with the capacity either. A solution must be found in another type of transport: cycling. The current bicycle infrastructure is not sufficient in terms of connectivity. In this research, a...

A lot of research has been done on the behaviour of pneumatic tyres and this has led to various tyre models and a lot of measurement data. However, in the specific field of bicycle tyres, not so much measurement data is available. However, in 2013 Andrew Dressel received the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering at the University of...

Route choice of cyclists recently became a hot topic of research for different disciplines such as transport and urban planning. Among other factors that influence these route choices, the urban environment has been identified as one in a network, road or aesthetic level. However, how the morphology of the built environment influences the cyclists...

This research provides insight into coping with the appearance of dockless bicycle sharing systems (BSS) in a municipal context. Due to technological developments like GPS integration and smart locks, BSS evolved towards the latest development of dockless shared bicycles. Most BSS companies were from Asian origin and had a disruptive impact on...

This thesis provides an insight into the role of dockless shared-bikes (Mobike) in Delft. The objective of is to fill the knowledge gap about the users of shared-bicycles and their motivations to use shared-bikes in Delft. A survey is and finally gained 91 useful results. 76% of respondents are students, and in general, people are highly...

In the Netherlands, many cities aim to promote cycling as a solution for sustainable mobility. However, the bicycle parking shortage is common. The popularity of ‘car-free city’ concept provides the opportunity to solve the problem by replacing car parking spaces to bicycle parking spaces. This study used a GIS-based location-allocation method...

The bicycle tour, more than any other sporting event, is fundamentally dependent on the landscape. The landscape has been used not only to challenge the peloton physically but also as a visual background for the event that has been broadcast worldwide. Tour of Ireland was first organised in 1953 as a part of An Tóstal, an Irish cultural festival...

This report presents the design process and the design proposal of a non-stigmatising stabilised bicycle designed for the bicycle company Beixo. With the trendy three wheel cargobike that has been designed for the problem of stability and stigma, insecure cyclists, including elderly, can cycle with confidence and stay mobile and independent. A...
