Popis The contemporary city is a highly fluid relational environment in which mobility and accessibility are the key qualities shaping the patterns of urban everydayness. We argue that each urban mobility practice produces and defines a specific ensemble of actors, technologies, places and times. The aim of the paper is to explore the embeddedness of bike commuting practices into a regular spatiotemporal organization of everyday urban life. We seek to explore the spatiotemporal contexts and situations in which ‘pragmatic cycling‘ seems to be an appropriate mean of mobility. A special attention will be paid to the rhythms integrating bike commuting with specific urban locales and specific urban times. In a mixed research design carried out in the city of Brno (Czech Republic), we will use aggregated quantitative data as a basis for identifying and qualitatively interpretation of bike-commuting related spatio-temporalities. Information from bike-sharing companies on the rides and station occupancies will be used as a kind of proxy-data to outline the spatial type and temporal identity of places animated by pragmatic cycling. The position of these locales within the overall mobility-based rhythms of the city will then be commented on in greater detail.
