John Pucher is a professor in the School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers University in New Jersey. For over three decades, he has examined differences in travel behavior, and transportation systems and policies in Europe, Canada, the USA, and Australia. Pucher’s more recent research has focused on walking and bicycling, and what we can learn from European cities to improve the safety, convenience, and feasibility of non-motorized modes. Pucher has published three books and over 100 peer-reviewed articles in academic and professional journals.

    Steep hills and lack of infrastructure, and a pliocy of not clearing bike lanes in winter hamper Stuttgart’s efforts. As well as obesity, I wonder what the Asthma levels are like in these cities?I know it’s not all hills though: I went through Dfcsseldorf on the Bakfiets last year and it’s flat as a pancake but not very bike friendly.
