Cycling, a sport with a rich history, is experiencing rapid growth in popularity (Braeckevelt, 2019). It is known for its numerous health benefits, including reducing cardiovascular risks and obesity (Oja et al., 2011).<br/><br/>Despite being perceived as a low-impact activity, research conducted by Delft University of Technology reveals that...

The goal of this graduation thesis is to design a bicycle computer mount (BCM) that connects bike computers with road cycling handlebars in a visually appealing, and aerodynamic way. Initiated between Delft University of Technology and a leading sports equipment company, the project addresses the evolving needs of cyclists regarding maximum...

The cycling industry is influenced by the approval of the tire pressure control system in competitive cycling. This system allows real-time adjustments to the tire-road interaction during races. The total rolling losses is the resistance resulting from tire-road interaction, incorporating resistance due to tire deformation and the dissipation of...

Kinematic joints are classified in lower pairs and higher pairs. Most multibody modelling techniques focus on lower pairs, because a complete classification in six types is available. Higher pairs are more diverse. In this article, higher pairs that can be exactly modelled by lower pairs are investigated. A complete classification of higher...

Automated vehicles pose a unique challenge to the safety of vulnerable road users. Research on cyclist-automated vehicle interaction has received relatively little attention compared to pedestrian safety. This exploratory study aims to bridge this gap by identifying cyclist-automated vehicle scenarios and providing recommendations for future...

The number of cars is increasing in the Netherlands, while the need for space and environmental regulations is increasing as well. The need for new mobility solutions is high. A shared bicycle system could be an indirect solution to these problems, by strengthening the chain journey and getting more people out of their cars. This research uses a...

Bicycles have been studied extensively over the past 200 years, with mathematical models providing valuable insights into various aspects of bicycle dynamics and rider control. However, the lack of a common framework for creating and sharing bicycle-rider models hinders the development of advanced models, research reproducibility, and...

This graduation project concerns the prevention of bicycling head-injuries in the Netherlands, by overcoming the socio-cultural unwillingness and undesirability of non-sports oriented bicyclists to wear a helmet. Getting cyclists to wear bicycle helmets is a task that requires behavioral change as well as a shift in perception from society. The...

Cycling has gained popularity worldwide, but little is known about the choice behaviour of people searching for a bicycle parking spot in the city centre. Formal parking spaces provided in the city centre are currently often underutilised, whilst many people use fly parking, which causes nuisance. This thesis aims to identify the most effective...

The second most used way of transport in the Netherlands is the bicycle. There is a great variety of city bicycles in which each person has their preference. One of the most critical aspects of personal preference is the cycling experience or feeling, better defined as Handling Qualities. Improving the Handling Qualities can lead to more comfort...

Ensuring equity is considered in all types of decision making, including with respect to cycling provision, is important. Studies have investigated equity in relation to provision of cycling infrastructure and facilities. However, identifying other factors that need consideration in cycling equity is important. This study explored the impact of...

Bicycles are more difficult to control at low speeds due to the vehicle’s unstable low-speed dynamics. This issue might be exacerbated by factors such as aging, disturbances, and multi-tasking. To address this issue, we developed a prototype ‘balance assist system’ with Royal Dutch Gazelle and Bosch eBike Systems at Delft University of...

Data-driven approaches are helpful for quantitative justification and performance evaluation. The Netherlands has made notable strides in establishing a national protocol for bicycle traffic counting and collecting GPS cycling data through initiatives such as the Talking Bikes program. This article addresses the need for a generic framework to...

In recent years, the interest in riding in cities using the two-wheeler (e.g., bicycles, electric bicycles, electric mopeds, etc.) increases. Mixed-traffic road segments are one of the most common traffic scenes where the mixed two-wheeler flows exist. Because the movements are often not restricted by lanes, the two-wheeler uses lateral road...

The operation of automated vehicles (AVs) on shared roads requires attention concerning their interactions with vulnerable road users (VRUs), such as cyclists. This study investigates the safety of cyclists when they interact with an AV and compares it with their interaction with a conventional vehicle. Overall, 29 cyclists participated in a...

In future traffic, intelligent user interfaces may aid cyclists in interpreting the behaviour of automated vehicles. Cyclists can be equipped with obstacle-detecting sensors, and an interface could display relevant information or use audible alerts to warn or inform cyclists of other road users' intent and potential hazards. Researching...

When making trips in urban environments, cyclists lose time as they stop and idle at signalized intersections. The main objective of this study was to show how augmenting the situational awareness of traffic signal controllers, using observations from moving sensor platforms, can enable prioritization of cyclists and reduce lost time within...

Despite the promised benefits, the introduction of Automated Vehicles (AVs) on roads will be confronted by many challenges, including public readiness to use those vehicles and share the roads with them. The risk profile of road users is a key determinant of their safety on roads. However, the relation of such risk profiles to road users’...
