Strategies for Increasing Commuter Cycling in Winter: A Case Study of Calgary

In North American Cities with a winter climate, the use of the bicycle drops dramatically during the winter season. This research suggests that the drop in ridership is not determined solely by climate. Climactic variables will likely always cause some effect, however, If bikeways are properly maintained and designed, the effect of the winter will be far less dramatic.
