This book offers a critical examination of existing cycling structures and the current policy and practices used to promote cycling in Europe. An international range of contributors provide an interdisciplinary analysis of the complex cultural politics of infrastructural provision and interrogate the pervasive bias against cyclists in city planning and transport systems across the globe. Infrastructural planning is revealed to be an intensely political act and its meaning variable according to larger political processes and contexts. The book also considers questions surrounding safety and risk, urban space wars and sustainable futures, connecting this to broader questions about citizenship and justice in contemporary cities.

"Full of compelling insights from some of the leading cycling researchers in the world, this volume brings the politics of infrastructure to bear in vibrant case studies of why and how cities continue to marginalize cycling despite its many known benefits." Mimi Sheller, Drexel University "In a day and age where human-powered mobility modes are praised for their sustainable potential, it is sobering to read this research showing the contested and stratified nature of velomobility across cities and societies." Ole B. Jensen, Aalborg University "An exciting and illuminating up and down ride through cycling infrastructures, policies and bike practices around different cities in the world." Professor Jonas Larsen, Roskilde University, Denmark.
