Abstract [en]

In Sweden, as well as in many countries in Scandinavia and in northern Europe, there is a growing trend towards daily sport and exercise cycling and cycle commuting. Cycling on rural roads is, whether for health, exercise, sports, leisure or commuting, is hampered by feelings of insecurity and risk caused by motorised traffic passing too close to the cyclist sharing the rural road. A cyclist is often overtaken by cars and other motorised vehicles and does not have control over the distance between them and the other vehicles. However, if the cyclist had control over the distance between themselves and the motor vehicle/object, how much space would they give themselves?

The aim of this study was to investigate a scenario where the cyclists had control over the distance between themselves and a fictive motor vehicle or road side object and assess how much space they would give themselves.
