Research and Speakers
Dr. Kay Teschke's Cycling in Cities research program has contributed scientific evidence for building infrastructure that welcome cycling in North America. She has contributed to municipal, provincial, national, and international policies related to cycling, including reviews of traffic deaths and injuries, traffic law reform, benchmarking, helmet law reviews, and design toolkits.
In January 2022, TraC hosted a lecture from Dr. Kay Teschke where she presented the results of two studies examining which types of cycle route infrastructure best promote biking and decrease injury risk.
