Biography:

Cycling in the UK is relatively rare among the older population. 

The award-winning cycle BOOM study (www.cycleboom.org) investigated how e-biking shapes cycling as people get older and how this affects their mobility, health and wellbeing. We found that cycling offers many potential benefits but the older population is generally reluctant to cycle due to fears of safety and increasing difficulties with the ageing body, unsupportive built environment and technology ill adapted to their needs. 

However, there is the potential to engage a significant number of older people in cycling. This is especially true given the growth in the availability of e-bikes. These were found to provide health and wellbeing benefits on a par or better than pedal cycles - and to be the perfect tool for local microadventures.
