Scenarios of cycling to school in England, and associated health and carbon impacts: Application of the ‘Propensity to Cycle Tool’
ConclusionCycling to school is uncommon in England compared with other Northern European countries. Trip distances and hilliness alone cannot explain the difference, suggesting substantial unmet potential. We show that policies resulting in substantial uptake of cycling to school would have important health and environmental benefits. At the level of road networks, the results can inform local investment in safe routes to school to help realise these potential benefits. (Source: Journal of Transport and Health)

Given the presence of compensation, we strongly recommend evaluations of transport interventions to measure and analyze both non-transport and transport physical activity.

Taking part in activities, an exploration of the role of discretionary travel in older people's wellbeing
ConclusionsLinks are seen between formal activity and mobility, but less so for informal activity. In both instances, activities are relatively local; suggesting endeavours to improve mobility and activity will achieve optimum wellbeing and community cohesion benefits at a local level. Activity theory does appear to offer promise as a way of exploring these issues. (Source: Journal of Transport and Health)

ConclusionDuring the last five years in Israel there is a dramatic increase in E-bike related hospitalized casualties corresponding to a substantial increase in E-bike usage. In comparison to M-bikers, there is a lower casualty rate but these casualties are more severely injured and utilize more hospital resources.
