A stated preference experiment was performed in Edmonton in Canada to both examine the nature of various influences on bicycle use and obtain ratios among parameter values to be used in the development of a larger simulation of household travel behaviour. A total of 1128 questionnaires were completed and returned by current cyclists. Each questionnaire presented a pair of possible bicycle use alternatives and asked which was preferred for travel to a hypothetical all-day meeting or gathering… 
Effect of Bicycle Facilities on Travel Mode Choice Decisions
AbstractBicycle facilities are commonly invested in to reduce vehicle congestion, mitigate vehicle emissions, and promote physical activity by increasing the number of bicycle trips and reducing the
Cyclists' travel behaviour, from theory to reality
A lot of cities are experiencing an increase of cycling in their daily urban trips. This produce benefits for all citizens and many decision-makers are designing policies to improve bike use.
An analysis of bicycle route choice preferences in Texas, US
TLDR
The empirical results indicate that travel time (for commuters) and motorized traffic volume are the most important attributes in bicycle route choice.
Modeling the Effects of Pro Bicycle Infrastructure and Policies Toward Sustainable Urban Mobility
AbstractThis paper aims to determine the potential of the bicycle as a sustainable mode of transport in a medium-sized Spanish city (Santander, in northern Spain) with strong inclines and relatively
The effect of work-related factors on the bicycle commute mode choice in the Netherlands
Increasing the number of people cycling to work brings a number of benefits: it can lead to reductions in air pollution and traffic jams, and increases people’s physical activity levels. We
Understanding and Measuring Bicycling Behavior: a Focus on Travel Time and Route Choice
With rates of obesity, heart disease, and related health problems increasing in the U.S. , many policy makers are looking for ways to increase physical activity in everyday life. Using a bicycle
Impact of Work-Related Factors on Levels of Bicycle Commuting
Cycling is environmentally friendly, cheap, beneficial to health and requires relatively little space. Because of all these advantages, many governments are attempting to encourage cycling in general
The relationship between public and private bicycle use: the case of Seville
Despite the success achieved by Public Bicycle Sharing Systems (PBSS) across the world, several researchers provide evidence on their limitations and constraints in a medium-long term, and bicycle

Analysis of stated preferences for intermodal bicycle-transit interfaces
One proposed means of increasing use of both transit and bicycles is to replace long automobile trips with "bike and ride" trips. In this study, a stated-preference survey was conducted using
Real-Time Human Perceptions: Toward a Bicycle Level of Service
The primary focus of this study by Sprinkle Consulting Engineers, Inc. is to develop a bicycle-quality, or level-of-service, model for applications in U.S. metropolitan areas. Although there are

TLDR
The results of this survey should be of interest to policy makers, businesses, and advocates interested in promoting the use of the bicycle for transportation purposes.
If You Build Them, Commuters Will Use Them: Association Between Bicycle Facilities and Bicycle Commuting
Conventional wisdom suggests that if bicycle pathways are provided, people will use them. This assertion is based on a combination of anecdotes, a few case studies, and mostly wishful thinking. Until
EVALUATING SUITABILITY OF ROADWAYS FOR BICYCLE USE: TOWARD A CYCLING LEVEL-OF-SERVICE STANDARD
Since 1965, traffic engineers and planners have used a measurement known as level of service (LOS) to describe the operating conditions within a traffic stream and their perception by motorists,

EFFECTS OF BICYCLE ACCOMMODATIONS ON BICYCLE/MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY AND TRAFFIC OPERATIONS
TLDR
The report describes the assumptions, principles, and approaches used to develop the recommendations; provides a model planning process for identifying a network of routes on which designated bicycle facilities should be provided to accommodate bicyclists of moderate ability.
BICYCLE STRESS LEVEL AS A TOOL TO EVALUATE URBAN AND SUBURBAN BICYCLE COMPATIBILITY
TLDR
The authors have established bicycle stress levels ranging from 1 to 5 to account for traffic variables of volume, speed, and curb lane width to provide the full range of criteria needed to determine the bicycle compatibility of roadways.
