Cyclingmobility to Focus on Policy, Planning

Published March 18, 2011

WASHINGTON D.C. (BRAIN)—The German specialist publishing house ‘verlag moderne industrie’ (mi) is launching an international quarterly journal called cyclingmobility.

Cyclingmobility will focus on urban planning, cycling policy, mobility research and development. Best practice examples and case studies from around the world will be shared with a highly selective readership. It will provide a comprehensive overview of the past, present and the all-important future of urban cycling mobility, according to a press release.

The publication is aimed at national, regional and local government officials, urban planners and planning departments, public transportation specialists, architects, cycling officers, cycling advocacy groups and decision makers in the industry. Cyclingmobility will answer significant questions such as “How can larger metropolitan areas and cities get out of gridlock, while improving the quality of life and general health of inner city inhabitants?”

Cyclingmobility will provide data and insight into possibilities and opportunities to improve the urban environment, plus a wide range of focused and comprehensive reports covering the latest information in research and development, planning, policy and legislation, public health and safety issues from across the globe. The high-quality print journal will also embrace digital channels including an iPad App, a comprehensive website, and social media interfaces such as Twitter @cyclingmobility and Facebook.

Ross Ringham, editor-in-chief of cyclingmobility, said, “In cities worldwide, from Denver and Washington to London and Seville, bike sharing programs are already popular, encouraging people to use bikes as an alternative to cars, buses, scooters and motorbikes. An ever-increasing number of communities across the globe are developing similar schemes to solve the complex issue of inner city mobility."

He added, “Cyclingmobility will not only deliver city planners and politicians useful and usable information, but will enable more informed decision making within the tourist, courier and bike industries."
