    Womens Racing Survey

    Hey All,

    One of my teammates is one of the coordinators in the area for women's racing and wanted some input from racers.

    If you could fill it out, that would be great. The survey takes about 5-10 minutes. The survey will close on 5/25/2015.

    Guys are also welcome to respond as feedback information does not discriminate.

    Cheers,
    J

    Glad to help. I wanted to share this awesome question and answer option:

    Q: How much time and energy do you intend to put into road racing?

    One of the answer options is:
    There’s an end to race season? Every group ride is a training race



    Haaaaahahahaha. Love it.

    Done.

    The survey did not have an option to indicate that one could currently be a mentor, i.e.:

    I currently mentor racers and intend to continue mentoring.
    I currently mentor racers and do not intend to continue mentoring.

    Cool idea, but "Feminist Killjoy"???? WTF? Also, what is a low impact and sustainable tour?

    I like the idea, but the implementation leaves me confused.

    It's sort of a feminist inside joke. We get accused of not having a sense of humor or being incapable of having fun. So it's a play on that. That's the one going on my bike ^_^

    I think 'low impact' means ecologically low impact (e.g., camping with only what you carry on your back).

    Bike racing is not low impact. I drive 30K a year - and work at home.
    Just walk a RR course - there are foot prints (and GUE wrappers etc. etc.) left behind.

    Did you read it? It's about touring, not racing.

    Glanced only. I assumed being in a racing forum it was about racing.
