Honoursmodule: The City on Two Wheels

Obscured by its apparent simplicity, urban cycling is a complex phenomenon. Being an almost perfect human-machine hybrid, cycling is deeply rooted in a plethora of socio-technological systems.

Around the world, cycling is embraced as an important ingredient to tackle a wide variety of individual and societal challenges. At the same time, there are large differences in developments across time and space that allows for a better understanding of potential causal relations. 

The case of the Netherlands is often seen as ‘best practice’, in part because of its matured urban cycling environment and high participation rates. 

Using Amsterdam as a ‘living lab’, we will analyse cycling in relation to spatial, ecological, historical, social, cultural, economic, and political structures. This blended learning Honours course incorporates the state-of-the-art knowledge that emerges from research and practice on the Dutch cycling system.  

Timetable

We now expect that all lectures can take place on-campus. In case the situation changes, you will be notified. You can find the timetable on Datanose.
