Cycle Boom!

Just wanted to give a heads-up on an EPSRC/ESRC/AHRC funded project project I’m involved in called ‘Cycle Boom’. The project intends to explore the linkages between ageing, cycling, wellbeing and the built environment in four UK city-regions (Oxford, Bristol, Reading and Cardiff).

I’m very lucky to be working alongside Tim Jones (PI) at Oxford Brookes, Emma Street (CO-I) at Reading, Kiron Chaterjee (CO-I) at UWE and Carien Van Reekum (CO-I) also at Reading. We also have a lovely bunch of RAs working with us; Heather Jones, Ben Spencer, Nick Beale, Phillip Black and Nick Humes.

If you’re interested to find out more about it and how we’re progressing please visit the website http://cycleboom.org/ over the coming months to find out what we’re up to.

Justin has moved (well jobs at least)…

Dear anyone,

After a short but enjoyable stint at University of Southampton I have now moved to Cardiff University as a lecturer in Human Geography. I am continuing my research into urban mobility (at the moment with the EPSRC Priceless Design project and ongoing work into HGV and cyclist interactions) and research into product qualities and the structuring of demand (in the shape of a project focusing on the globalisation of the bike industry). You can find my updated contact details in the contacts tab if you want to get hold of me. Despite posting in February that I might, I evidently haven’t yet opened a Twitter account. Well at two posts per year it hardly seems worth it…
