4. Inclusive Cycling

In Holland over 50% of the cycle trips are made by Women, and perhaps this is a barometer to how cycle friendly a place really is. Children, families and the disabled are also under-represented when it comes to cycling. When designing filtered permeablity engineers should also consider the width of a wheelchair or a cargo bike for kids.
