Resumo

O objetivo deste estudo foi identificar as características das rotas utilizadas para o uso de bicicleta de acordo com o sexo em uma amostra de adolescentes da cidade de Curitiba, Brasil. O estudo foi realizado em 2013 com 147 adolescentes de 12 a 17 anos, que usaram acelerômetro e receptores de Sistema de Posicionamento Global para avaliar a atividade física e a localização geográfica. Um total de 38 participantes (50,0% meninas) apresentaram pelo menos uma rota em bicicleta e, por isso, foram incluídos na amostra analítica. Foram identificadas 386 rotas. Quase todas as rotas incluíam meios de transporte público, praças e áreas residencial, comercial, de alimentos ou de lazer (> 97,0%), enquanto ciclovias (62,7%) e academias ao ar livre eram menos frequentes (71,8%). As estações de ônibus de transporte rápido (BRT), parques e terrenos vazios foram as menos frequentes nas rotas (37,3%; 17,1%; e 7,5%, respectivamente). As rotas utilizadas pelas meninas tiveram menos terrenos vazios (3,9%; p = 0,001) e mais residenciais, varejo, serviços de alimentação e recreação (99,6% ; p = 0,003; 99,1%; p = 0,011; 98,7%; p = 0,030, respectivamente) quando comparado com meninos. Os resultados sugerem que as rotas utilizadas pelos adolescentes têm uso misto e diversificado do solo e que meninas trafegam por rotas com maior infraestrutura de bicicleta e serviços e menos terrenos vazios quando comparado com meninos.
