    Increased cycling requires more than good cycle paths

    Increasing cycling is not just about building more and faster cycle lanes for those already on their bikes. In order to include more groups, city planners need to consider factors other than infrastructure, says researcher Zahra Hamidi. Accessibility and health are factors that play a role in the desire to cycle, Zahra Hamidi’s PhD dissertation Examining Inequalities in Cycling Motility: A pathway towards cycling justice shows.

    Disputation | Exercising on the edge: mitochondrial and metabolic responses to intense training | Mikael Flockhart, GIH, Torsdagen den 22 september 2022

    Mikael Flockharts doktorsavhandling handlar om hur mitokondriell funktion och blodsockerkontroll påverkas akut av träning. Uthållighetsträning används förebyggande och behandlande vid många sjukdomstillstånd. Flockhart har även undersökt påverkan vid hög träningsbelastning. Ett diagnostiskt test för att upptäcka negativa anpassningar till träning har utvecklats; i allvarliga fall kan överträningssyndrom diagnostiseras.

    Call for Papers | “Cycling Beyond Growth Economies”, Cycling and Society Research Group Annual Symposium 2022 | Hosted by the School of Geography and Planning, Cardiff University, Wales (UK)...

    Cycling and Society Research Group 2022 asks: what role can cycling play in questioning the emphasis on growth, lack of inclusivity, and relative neglect of Global South contexts? Accordingly, we seek submissions from cycling researchers who wish to engage with themes of sufficiency and no/de-growth; social value and its measurement; alternate qualities (e.g beyond speed, efficiency and directness); mobility justice and inclusivity; and post-colonial mobilities.

    Call for Papers | “Media, Society and Cycling Cultures”, Special Issue of Eracle. Journal of Sport and Social Sciences. Call ends March 31, 2022

    The interdisciplinary field of study ‘Cycling and Society’ represents a part of mobility studies. Cycling studies start from a critique of ‘automobility’, the dominant paradigm of contemporary mobility. They try to outline post-car mobility scenarios and focus on ’velomobility’. With the aim of contributing to this field of study, this call for papers invites articles focusing on the increasing mediatization and platformization of the experience of cycling.

    Workshop | Cycling through gendered lives: exploring the link between structural gender inequalities, gender norms and mobility practices in Japan and beyond | January 20–21 2022

    This workshop will explore the link between structural gender inequalities, cultural gender norms, and women’s bicycling practices. Research works from around the world will be confronted to the “critical case” of Tokyo to identify ways forward for research on gender and cycling. To accommodate researchers from several different countries, and given the ongoing travel uncertainties associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, this workshop will be held online.

    Call for Papers | Longer Distance Cycling: roles, requirements and impacts | Special Issue of Active Travel Studies. Call ends November 16, 2020

    While the combination of longer distance good quality infrastructure and e-bikes could act as an encouragement for some, the combination of the two may not be attractive to others. Overall the special issue is interested in the potential contribution of longer distance cycling and its implications, good and bad. On the positive side, there may be gains in accessibility and inclusion; on the negative, longer distance cycling may deter shorter (slower) cycling trips.

    PhD position for research on doping and professional cycling at Faculty of Social and Political Sciences, University of Lausanne

    The main research area is about doping in elite road cycling. The data collection and analysis are mainly qualitative (interviews with riders, sports directors, trainers, physicians) and relate to: the interplay between riders’ socialisation and teams’ organisation, the careers in elite cycling, the production of performance, the physical preparation, the use of pharmacological products (e.g. doping).
