  2. A plug  Demonstration of the National Propensity to Cycle

    Tool (NPCT)  Wednesday, 4pm, 16:00 - 17:30 - Bring a laptop!
  3. Structure  Main findings  Policy impact  Next steps

    This presentation is based on Lovelace, R., Roberts, H., & Kellar, I. (2015). Who, where, when: the demographic and geographic distribution of bicycle crashes in West Yorkshire. Transportation Research Part F: Traffic Psychology and Behaviour.
  4. Context

  5. The case study area

  6. Bicycle crashes: an urban phenomonon?

  7. Cycle risk is focussed in Leeds?

  8. Estimating risk

  9. Other patterns in the data  Clear seasonality  Upward

    trend
  10. None
  11. None
  12. None
  13. Shock finding!

  14. II Policy Impact

  17.  Linking road network with perceptions  Psychological experiments 

    Analysis of entirety of UK  Links with Near Miss Project  Work on relative risk groups (MAMILS)  Route-allocated risk III Next steps
  18. <date/time> <footer> Conclusions Urgent need for crowd-sourced data on dangerous

    places Research on risk can be risky Best way to promote cycling: make it an everyday activity!
  19. Identifying best practice  Now this is more like it,
