Perceptions of cycling among homeless young people in Sydney (Australia)

Shameless stolen from the Cycling Resource Centre

This research, published in the journal Youth Studies Australia in November 2012, examines the perceptions and attitudes toward cycling of young people who were experiencing or at risk of homelessness in central and south-western Sydney. The benefits of cycling for physical activity, personal transport, independence and social inclusion were recognised. Barriers to regular cycling included compliance with mandatory helmet legislation; a lack of cycling skills and experience; a paucity of cycling infrastructure and reliance on cars for personal transport; and access to affordable bicycles and equipment.
The rest of the summary can be found at the Cycling Resource Centre post and the article can be downloaded from my Dropbox.
