By modifying the Ecological approach in the Cycling-Friendly Neighbourhood enhancement for the cycling infrastructure in Malaysia, the awareness and experience of the people are required to evaluate. Henceforth, the relationship between perceived environment, cycling participation level and cycling-oriented design factor will take part later to validate the significant relationship for each construct through empirical study. The convenience infrastructure design factors have been highlighted in the study comprises four elements such as safety and security, accessibility and connectivity, attractiveness and aesthetic and convenience and comfort. Thus, it will give interest and facilitate the stakeholders in creating the cycling-friendly environment in the residential neighbourhood through supportive infrastructure for the communities.
