Abstract

•We examine bicycling through the lenses of Social Practice Theory and gender.•We suggest bicycling is a social activity bound to other daily life practices.•Children provide both social opportunities and constraints for mothers' bicycling.•Keeping children safe from traffic and time pressures are common constraints.
