At the Intersection of Mobility Modes: the Practice of Sharing Common Mobility Spaces by Cyclists
Complex Social Analysis
(Master’s programme)
2019
In this paper, we study the mode of mobility, as a way of bodily movement in space, governed by the strategies of political actors and architects. The main theoretical framework of the study is the sociology of mobility and social geography, which allow us to consider the practices of mobility in the city as a space of interaction between mobile actors. The purpose of the empirical research is to describe the basic spaces available and actually used by cyclists, and to characterize the interactions that occur in these spaces. To solve the tasks, both classical (interview, observation) and mobile methods (ride-along) are used. As a result of the study, the author obtained a typology of mobility spaces, and described what cycling tactics cyclists use to move around the city with maximum benefit for themselves.
