Tim Jones
Reader in Urban Mobility, Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment, Oxford Brookes University

Dr. Tim Jones is Reader in Urban Mobility with an interest in urban environments can be (re)configured to support and promote sustainable and healthy urban mobility, particularly walking and cycling.  He has led research on major research projects on walking and cycling including EPSRC Understanding Walking and Cycling; EPSRC cycle BOOM and ESRC Newton Healthy Urban Mobility.

Tim will talk about the award winning cycle BOOM study (Winner of Royal Town Planning Institute Award for Academic Excellence 2017) which sought to understand cycling among the older population and how this affected independence, health and wellbeing. The project was instrumental in advising policy makers and practitioners how our environment and technologies could be designed to help people to continue to cycle in older age or to reconnect with cycling. Tim will outline how people aged 50 and over, who were returning to cycling as part of an eight-week health and wellbeing trial, created their own cycling micro-adventures and the effect on their cognitive function and well-being.
