Welcome to the NCBW Forum

The NCBW Forum is one of the oldest, most trusted publications covering the field of bicycle and pedestrian design issues. First published in 1977 as Bicycle Forum, the quarterly newsletter changed its name in 2001 to become the NCBW Forum. This was done partially in response to the broadening focus of the organization; the content now explicitly includes pedestrian-related articles, references, and news items.

In September, 2003, the NCBW Forum moved from a print publication available via subscription only to an on-line publication open to all. The articles compendium is joined with an online message area where people can post comments about articles, start new discussions, and search for archived articles and posts. John Williams, the long-time editor of the print version of the NCBW Forum, remains at the helm of our NCBW Forum.
