Compétent-e-s, mais exposé-e-s : du tricycle au vélo utilitaire, socialisations et trajectoires des cyclistes urbain-e-s

Abstract : Based on research carried out in Lyon and Saint-Étienne (France), this article examines the socialization processes that lead to the adoption of the bicycle as a daily mode of transportation in an urban context. The authors investigate the roles of socializing agents, technical devices and the physical environment on long-term cycling trajectories. The article shows the influence of primary socialization in the acquisition of basic motor skills as well as the initial experience of cycling as a leisure practice before its adoption as an everyday practice. Subsequently, peer groups help to develop other skills such as direction finding, negotiating motorized traffic and wearing appropriate clothes. In addition to the transposition of skills from one practice to another, the article explores how technical factors—self-service bikes, e-bikes, motorcycles—and the characteristics of the territory contribute to trends among urban cyclists.
