Welcome to the Manchester Cycling Lab!

The goal of the Manchester Cycling Lab was to turn Manchester into a real-life laboratory for the study of cycling. This involved working in collaboration with Manchester City Council, Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) and local businesses to identify the gaps in knowledge that need to be filled in order to facilitate the Better By Cycle programme and transform Manchester into a cycling city. Understanding user and stakeholder needs has been central to this approach in order to develop a complementary programme of applied research projects that support a cycling transition while harnessing the knowledge and capacity of the University.

The project has been funded by the Economic and Social Research Council Impact Acceleration Account.

The research has been taken forward within various projects in Greater Manchester. Please find latest updates and opportunities for enagement via Twitter (@McrCyclingLab) and contact Gabriele Schliwa (gabriele.schliwa@manchester.ac.uk) in case of any questions.
