AbstractIn recent research I have been considering the question, “how do people ride in the city, when bicycling is a mundane phenomenon?” The core of this investigation builds on a discussion between the contributors to Cycling Cultures (Cox 2015) seeking to understand everyday practices and to evaluate appropriate methods for doing so. I wanted to explore in particular how important the physical spaces in which people ride are for the ways in which people ride. As sensory beings, our sensory experiences should have an important impact upon our choices and behaviours at a collective, as well as individual level. My working hypothesis was that they are very important but problematic to measure in any meaningful way.
