This paper aims to investigate overriding factors that prevent female participation in leisure cycling. There has been little written about the influence of individual attitudes and perceptions of bicycle use and even less has been written about specifically female attitudes (Sener, Eluru and Bhat 2009). This research combines literature on LTPA gender constraints, cycle tourism and cycling in general to contribute to the little existing knowledge of female cycling constraints. Moreover, in contrast to other papers it considers personal attitudes as well as objective constraints that previous research has been criticised for lacking (Raymore 2002). This paper intends to expose constraints in leisure cycling to better prepare governments and organizations to serve females who have a desire to cycle for leisure.
