Investigating Digitally Inflected Intercity Cycle Commuting

Cook, Matthew (2024). Investigating Digitally Inflected Intercity Cycle Commuting. Journal of Urban Technology (early access).



Multiple smart city cycle technologies have been developed to support cycle commuting and create lower carbon cities. Such technologies hold significant potential to reshape how cycle commuting is experienced, understood and governed. To investigate such phenomena, this paper provides a rich account of digitally inflected inter-city cycle commuting. It shows how technologies including gamification elements script cycle commuting and consequently reshape cycling practices and infrastructures. As such digitally inflected cycle commuting is revealed as a complex multifaceted process of selfhood, reflexivity, embodiment and social interaction which challenges imaginaries of mobile subjects underpinning standardised smart city transport policy prescriptions.
