Promoting Independent Cycling for Enhancing Later Life Experience and Social Synergy through Design (PrICELESS Design) - EP/K037242/1 led by Dr Tim Jones - Oxford Brookes University in collaboration with academics at University of Reading, University of the West of England, University of Cardiff.

Grant value 1.2 million

The team will use a novel mixed-methods approach with 240 participants from across four UK cities and will involve biographic interviews, secondary data analysis, mobile-interviews, and an experimental trial with new or returning cycle users.

The project will examine data from the UK and abroad to develop a toolkit for policy makers and practitioners. This will advise them on how the built environment and technology could be designed to support and promote cycling amongst current and future older generations. The findings will hopefully highlight how an ageing population can become or remain 'velomobile' and how this might benefit public health and wellbeing, as well as liveability of our cities.
