Abstract - the built environment and human activity patterns - Document - Adobe PDF - Acrobat ReaderThis article reviews current public health, planning, and urban design research to determine, first, how walking and bicycling might be critically important exercise behaviours for improving public health, second, how urban form affects the frequency of walking and bicycling as a form of physical activity, and third, how the public health considerations outlined in this article might reorient planners' thinking toward the realization of health-promotive environments.
