Originally developed by Roger Geller for the city of Portland, the "Four Types of Cyclists" typology (Strong and Fearless; Enthused and Confident; Interested but Concerned; No Way No How) has been adopted widely to help guide efforts to increase bicycling for transportation. This webinar will present findings from a new, national survey conducted in collaboration with the National Association of Realtors. We will address the following questions:

  • Does the Four Types of Cyclists typology apply nationally?
  • What are the characteristics of each type of cyclist?
  • How does the existing environment, including bicycle infrastructure, affect the share of people in each category/type?
  • What programs or infrastructure might increase bicycling for transportation among the different types of cyclists?

Her research interests focus on the interactions of transportation planning, travel behavior, health, the environment and land use. In general, she is interested in answering these questions: How do people make their travel and location decisions? How do those decisions impact the environment? How do our planning decisions impact people's travel and location decisions? Prior to entering academia, she worked as an environmental and transportation planner.
