Bicyclists' Braking Profile on Several Types of Urban Pavements


Bicycling is considered to be one of the sustainable transport modes and its use is going to rise in the future, in order to promote the sustainable mobility in the urban road environment. Many cities are not ready to deal with the rising necessity of a safe and functional bicycle road network, which is critical for the bicyclists' safety. Bicyclists except for bikeways can ride their bikes on pedestrian areas, sidewalks or on road segments sharing the road with other vehicles. The purpose of this study is to investigate the necessary brake length and time until the bicycle is stopped, considering factors like the type of the road pavement and the speed of the bicycle.
