Abstract

This study analyzes the factors that contribute towards cycling to work and back home in Ireland in both males and females. The study has been carried out to analyze the factors amongst the middle-aged people in Ireland. Many governmental organizations in the developed countries are taking considerable measures to increase the use of a bicycle in commute distances. They are practicing different ways for increasing ensuring that cycling is very effective. The research work determines the impact of social influence, commute distance, cycling facilities and amenities provided by the organization, external factors, and cycling infrastructure impact on cycle to work. A quantitative research work has been carried out and a 5-point Likert scale has been used to obtain answers from the respondents. A total of 370 questionnaires have been collected. It is found that social influence, cycling facilities, external factors and cycling infrastructure impacts the level of cycling the most in Ireland in the cycle to work scheme. Amongst these independent variables, external factors impact the level of cycling the most. On the other hand, it was also found that commute distance does not impact the level of cycling amongst the people. Moreover, it also found that gender does not impact the level of cycling.
