Mission statement

General mission statement of the symposia:

Cycling has long been bound up with wider social and political issues. In the symposia we unpack these connections and explore how cycling practices can drive social change.
We invite panels and papers on the cultural, historical, future and critical aspects of cycling especially in relation to social cleavages of class, gender, disabilities, ethnicity and other divisions and their intersectionality with past, existing and potential cycling practices. We welcome research contributions from individuals whether in academic, communities, consultancies, public policy, or other relevant settings.
The Cycling and Society network aims to create an accessible platform for sharing critical views in a convivial space.
