For over three decades, he has examined differences in travel behavior, and transportation systems and policies in Europe, Canada, the USA, and Australia. Pucher’s more recent research has focused on walking and bicycling, and what we can learn from European cities to improve the safety, convenience, and feasibility of non-motorized modes.

Many people think of bicycling as a fun way to get exercise, but these stories show that it is far more than a simple activity. Simply put, bicycling changes lives.
Through bicycling, you’ve conquered life-threatening health problems like diabetes, obesity, and substance abuse. You’ve met the loves of your lives and rekindled broken relationships with close family. You’ve explored new places, near and far, and have seen things you never would have otherwise.
We think bicycling is an amazing and powerful activity that changes lives. If enough of us ride, we can change the world.
