Biking uphill is satisfying, and other bicycle research from Transportation Research Board 2013

Humphrey School student, Jessica Schoner, presents her work on bike route connectivity.

Jessica Schoner of the University of Minnesota found that bike route connectivity was a significant factor in increasing mode share in the the 74 U.S. cities she studied - but, surprisingly, "fragmentation" is not. I asked if fragmentation wasn't just the lack of connectivity. She said fragments were "little islands of bike facility everywhere." The size of the bicycle network was also not a significant factor in mode share, according to her research.
