Kat Jungnickel is a sociology lecturer at Goldsmiths, University of London. She is interested in mobility cultures, DiY and DiT (Doing-it-Together) technology practices and ideas around gender and citizenship. She worked with Rachel on the Cycling Cultures project and recently has been exploring Victorian women’s cycle wear. She rides lots of different kinds of bikes, commutes everyday, races occasionally and cycle tours when she gets time. During the pilot study she experienced a number of near misses, the most memorable being almost knocked over by a HGV that swerved across her path to avoid a motorist veering into his lane. She got the chance, which is not always possible on the road, to speak to the driver who was aware of what had and could have happened and was incredibly apologetic.
