Bicycling as part of active and sustainable mobility in urbanized areas is gaining momentum. Innovation on different aspects of transport infrastructure, policy and governance is evident across geographies – bicycle (super)highways, solar/e-bikes, smart bikeshare programs, creative social media campaigns to name a few. One of the major challenges is developing, sustaining and promoting cycling practices, mainly from the perspective of providing for policy and governance of bicycling infrastructures; still, this includes a genuine commitment to a transition to an active and sustainable society and includes perspectives oriented to nudge individual’s behaviour.

This session invites papers on all aspects of cycling innovation, including but not limited to the role of cycling to:
- shift policy debates
- repurpose and renew infrastructure investments
- gain traction towards sustainable practices
- probe about cycling’s active and healthy lifestyle
- (re)develop road safety standards
- target mobility benefits for specific groups (e.g., children, elderly, migrants)
Particularly stimulating for this panel would be the ability to attract experiences and lessons from emerging and developing economies.

Submissions are welcome by November 10, 2019. Please submit abstracts (250 words) with five keywords and full affiliation and corresponding addresses of author(s) to
Provide your 8-digit Program Identification Number (PIN), as required by the AAG session organization guideline.
