Cycling has been growing quickly in London but still remains a minority form of transport, with even lower participation in other parts of the UK. What status does this give cycling in culture? Are cyclists considered ‘outsiders’, and if so, what does this mean?

This half-day symposium organised by UCL Transport Institute will look at cycling and culture from a range of perspectives, attempting to shed light on how cyclists interact with their environment and with others.
