I'm curious as to the demographics of the cycling advocates that participate on this forum.

Thank you for participating in this anonymous poll.

A cycling advocate is simply one who promotes or advocates cycling as an activity, transportation, sport, etc., and/or defends or promotes the interests and rights of cyclists in general, one way or another.

Thank you for including 'committed', which includes all legally recognized relationships and those without legal recognition. Many Americans forget that other countries have legal recognition of common-law and other couples not married.

Next time I won't even include "married", just "committed" rather than "married/committed", since committed basically includes married. And if you're married but not committed, that's effectively "single" anyway!

Point.
What if you're divorced? "Single, with scars"?

divorced = single (again)

I find it interesting that so far we have no singles with minor dependents. I suspect those folks don't have the time for particiipating in this kind of activity.

I just checked in and added myself. Over time I have moved from Single, more than one to single with one. May end up changing catagories again sometime but not in the life of this poll. (Had a child decide to move to mother's)
