This research aims to explain the determinants of cycling behaviour to workplaces in Bogotá. Using a survey strategy data and an on-line questionnaire method sent on four workplaces in the city which had implemented Workplace Travel Plan (WTP), more than 700 commuters’ responses were collected. Through three binary logit model the determinants of cycling behaviour to work were explained. The choice of bicycle, the frequency of use and the acquisition of a new cycling behaviour were explained trough those models based on the individuals' needs, contextual opportunities, and abilities. The study found out that work-related factors which shape the individuals’ contextual opportunities have a crucial role in cycling behaviour and suggest that the regulation, promotion or encouragement of the implementation of WTP could lead to the achievement of a more sustainable mobility on the city.
