Women On Wheels: A Study of Gender and Cycling in Chinese Cities

March 2023


It is well known that there persists a gender gap in cycling that prevents women from choosing cycling as a primary transport mode in many regions of the world, whether it is due to personal safety concerns, economic factors, or lack of basic infrastructure.

Through the global Cycling Cities campaign and the work of our regional teams, ITDP is committed to promoting cycling policies and infrastructure that makes cycling more accessible, inclusive, and safer for everyone. In 2021 and 2022, ITDP China conducted several cycling-related projects in three different cities. Beijing and Guangzhou, as cities with varying cycling infrastructure, and Nanning, as the city with the highest number of e-bikes in China, were surveyed.
