This research used a survey approach with parents and school children, considering the factors that enable or present a barrier to cycling. They used a COM-B (capability, opportunity, and motivation to engage in an identified behaviour) model to help with the data interpretation. Participants were 246 children (aged 9-15 years) with one of their parents also involved. The findings included the potential influence of parents cycling frequency on their children’s engagement with cycling, as well as factors like access to a working cycle. Interventions are suggested in relation to parents and children’s attitudes towards cycling.
