TNO Kwaliteit van Leven Publication year 2010 Abstract This study examined built environmental correlates of children's walking and cycling behavior. Four hundred and forty-eight children from 10 Dutch neighborhoods completed a seven-day physical activity diary in which the number of walking and cycling trips for transportation, to school, and for recreation were assessed. The associations between observed built environmental characteristics and children's walking and cycling behavior were examined with multivariate linear regression analyses. The results showed that built environmental correlates of children's walking and cycling behavior differ by purpose and by commuting mode implying a behavior-specific approach for interventions and for future, preferably prospective, studies. © 2010 by the authors.
