Relationships among community characteristics and walking etc

A paper comparing walking and bicycling for transportation. The authors found that communities with more parks had significantly higher levels of walking and bicycling for transportation. Urban design features associated with leisure time physical activity might differ from those associated with transportation-related physical activity. Further studies are needed to articulate the relationships among community attributes and purposes of physical activity.
