This book examines emerging debates and questions around cycling to critically analyse and challenge dominant framings and prevalent conventions of 'good cycling'.


Cycling Societies brings to light the plurality of voices and forms of cycling in other societies, revealing the diversity and complexity of cycling across different socio-political regimes, geographies and cultures. It presents case studies from five continents and demonstrates the need of thinking comparatively about cycling and urban environments. The book pivots around the three themes of innovations, inequalities and governance and engages a diversity of voices: world-renowned academics in the field of cycling and urban mobility, cycling activists and transportation consultants.


Synthesising academic contributions with policy briefs, this innovative book will be of great interest to students, scholars and practitioners of sustainable transportation, urban planning and mobility studies.

"Cycling Societies is testament to the fact that cycling is in fact constituting societies. From smart e-bike solutions over gendered biking policies to nature explorations on bikes, Zuev, Psarikidou and Popan have collected an important and timely set of entries from some of the leading cycling scholars. A must read for cyclists and cycle activists, as well as for those who make the frame conditions for cycling." -- Ole B. Jensen, Professor, Aalborg University, Denmark

"The most comprehensive and up-to-date research on cycling innovations and inequalities around the world. Cycling Societies unwraps the transformations and governance of cycling in cities in Europe, Latin America, Africa, and Asia, when so many cities are politically conflicted over the adoption of cycling-friendly policies and the expansion of cycle paths, bike sharing systems and "smart" data collection. This volume is a timely reminder of the diversity of cycling and its complex relationship with automobility and urban space." -- Mimi Sheller, Drexel University, USA

"At the cutting edge of transport research and a gathering of great ideas. Essential reading to all of those around the world that are trying to deliver sustainable transport. If you want to view the future of transport and gain an understanding of how we can make this happen then this book is the place to start." -- Brian Deegan, Urban Movement, Principal Design Engineer, UK, and co-author of the London Cycling Design Standards at Transport for London (2014)

"Cycling Societies provides refreshing and new perspectives on the role and status of cycling in the modern city. The editors and authors show how cycling provides a powerful lens to look at diversity and the plurality of forms of emerging innovations, new inequalities and new forms of governance. Building on a wide range of insightful contributions from both academics and practitioners across the world, it is a brilliant book that shows the bicycle as a social, technological system existing in relation to the car and the plurality of cycling societies." -- Marianne Ryghaug, Professor of Science and Technology Studies, Head of Center for Energy, Climate and Environment at Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Norway.
