Abstract [en]

Th is article employs a social practice approach to analyze the boom and bustof cycling in Stockholm around 1980, in the context of broader socioeconomic trends and under the infl uence of new cyclists, bicycle innovation, and local traffic policy. Within a predominantly car-based city traffic regime, which rendered some mobility practice more legitimate than others, measures intended for cyclists were taken at the expense of pedestrians rather than motorists. Because of a blend of more cyclists, faster bicycles, and design choices based on the car as norm, the image of the cyclist transformed from that of the victim (of automobility) to the villain, and, for this reason, cycling was less easily supportedby local politicians. Combined with the second wave of automobilityin the 1980s, bicycle policy and planning lost its steam, and cycling declined.
