Hi everyone im currently in my last year of university and Im currently carrying out my stupid disertation research into New Labours Transport Policies concerning cycling.
Part of my research invovles interviewing cyclists so If you would be kind enough to answer a few questions (see below) I would be most grateful.
How often do you use your bike?
Why do you use your bike?
What is it that you enjoy about cycling?
How safe do you feel cycling on the roads within your local borough?
Have you noticed any significant differences/changes in other road users attitudes towards you when cycling on the roads in your local borough?
Have you noticed any changes in road design/layout over the years?
Do you see these changes as a step forward for encouraging more people onto their bikes or a hindrance?
How confident are you when it comes to riding amongst other road users e.g. cars, motorbikes, buses lorries and so on?
What suggestion for changes would you want to see being made to the current road networks in your local borough?
How cycle friendly would you say the current situation is on a scale of 1-5 with 1 being the lowest and 5 the highest?
How would you describe your day-to-day experiences of riding in the roads?
Have you or any other cyclists, cycling organisations, cycling clubs in your area been involved in council plans to improve the roads?
If no. Would you like to see the council getting the people directly affected by these changes involved more, basically would like to have a say in providing for cyclists in the future?
What would you like to see happen in the future?
