Abstract [en]

Over the last decade, urban cycling has re-emerged as a popular mode oftransportation in Chinese cities. This article examines how grassroots activismcontributed to this cycling renaissance by considering the case ofGuangzhou. In the wake of rapid economic development, the Chinese gov-ernment modified its transportation policies such that cycling was revived,with Guangzhou playing a role in the“rise, fall, and re-emergence”of Chinaas a“cycling kingdom.”We contend that these sociopolitical circumstances ofeconomic development and political opening up provided a structuralopportunity for cycling activists, who gained public visibility and institutionalrecognition through their strategic interaction with both governmental andnongovernmental actors. In addition, activists empowered themselves byaccumulating and transforming their social capital. Their example resonatedwith other marginal organizations and the resulting alliances enhanced thelegitimacy of cycling as a movement. Finally, we identify the dilemmas andlimitations of cycling activism in urban China due to the closure of localgovernance channels and the perception that cycling issues are“nonurgent.”
