About the Programme
What does cycling experience look like in practice? How can we measure and conceptualize it? This course will take you through 7 examples of infrastructure using 2 lenses: the Heuristic Evaluation tool and the Social, Sensory, and Spatial Experience framework. In a practical exercise at the end you use one of these lenses in your own city, and are then given resources for further study.
Note: this is intended as a structured way to learn about infrastructure that addresses cycling experience. You can also individually reference our open examples here.
- Urban mobility professionals from a variety of roles (e.g. engineers, planners, designers, project managers, and decision makers) ready to relate their work to the end user’s experience.
- Private, public, and nonprofit professionals alike (not limited to one sector).
- Students interested in learning about the application of user experience in mobility planning.
Some background in cycling or urban planning and an interest in the human experience or background in user experience or social science and an interest in cycling.
Bicycle User Experience (BUX) envisions cities where cycling is an inclusive, accessible everyday form of transportation that fits seamlessly into people’s lives and benefits all.
We are based in the Netherlands and internationally-oriented with a global network of collaborators, learners, and clients. We help you to rethink bike planning: study people and fit the bicycle into their lives.
What we do
BUX provides learning opportunities on cycling experience and people-centered design, maintains an open toolkit of methods for human-centered bikeways, and offers professional services to equip planning organizations with the tools to understand and design for everyday people's experiences while cycling.
