Dear all,

And with apologies for cross-posting and the brazen publicity, please be aware that I have recently had the following published. See https://www.icebookshop.com/Products/Designing-for-Cycle-Traffic.aspx#more-info for more details.

I would hope this becomes a core text for anybody teaching or learning about designing for cycling.

Designing for Cycle Traffic: International principles and practice
AUTHOR(S): John Parkin
ISBN: 9780727763495
PUBLICATION DATE: 13 July 2018

Designing for Cycle Traffic compares and evaluates international principles and practices for designing for cycle traffic. It sets design for cycling in the wider context of public realm design, traffic planning, traffic engineering and traffic management. The book mainly draws on UK, Dutch, Danish and North American principles, and it enables readers to understand how effective design can create efficient transport systems that support economic vibrancy, social activity, and environmental sustainability. A key theme is that only distinct and separate provision for cycle traffic can ensure the creation of attractive and comfortable infrastructure for cyclists.

Coverage includes:
*         principles for design to ensure inclusivity
*         planning processes for cycle route networks
*         design approaches, including capacity calculations for links and junctions, roundabouts and crossings, and signal control
*         modelling and level of service assessment approaches.
*         each chapter is extensively illustrated, provides a concise overview of the topic, and includes an introductory overview and summary of chapter highlights.
Written in an accessible style by an established international authority, Designing for Cycle Traffic is essential reading for students, designers and planners in the fields of traffic and highway engineering, spatial and transport planning, architecture and urban design.


Chris Boardman, MBE, Greater Manchester cycling and walking commissioner:
John Parkin's book is a practical road map on how to create the kind of streets we want to walk and ride along, places we want our children to grow up. Space not just for transport, but for living.


John Pucher, Professor Emeritus, Rutgers University and co-editor of 'City Cycling' and 'The Future of City Cycling' by MIT Press:
This new book by John Parkin provides the most detailed and comprehensive guide to the engineering of cycling facilities I have ever seen.  'Designing for Cycle Traffic' is fully up-to-date, incorporating the state-of-the-art best practices that have been developed over recent decades.  A truly irresistible book for transport engineers and planners responsible for improving cycling facilities.

Paul Schepers, Senior road safety adviser at the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Waterworks and guest researcher at Utrecht University:
John Parkin's book is very important. His comprehensive overview of international design guidance and practices enables designers to design in accordance with the needs and abilities of cyclists, and to achieve safer and more pleasant cycling in a variety of countries. The book is all the more important based on the lack of an equivalent in cycling of the exchange of information platforms such as the World Road Association and the Conference of European Directors of Roads.



***Check out my new book just published 'Designing for cycle traffic<https://www.icebookshop.com/Products/Designing-for-Cycle-Traffic.aspx>': a must for anyone involved in designing for cycling.***
