    Hello all. My name is Will, and I have joined your forum because I have a class project. The project is to write a survey, and get 100 samples, then write a paper based on the survey results.

    3) How often do you ride your bike as transport?

    -Two to four times a week
    - Five or more times a week

    4) How far do you generally ride your bike?

    -Male


    2) What is your age?

    -40 to 50


    3) How often do you ride your bike as transport?


    -Very rarely as transportation


    4) How far do you generally ride your bike?

    - Seven or more miles

    5) What is your primary reason for riding a bike as transportation?

    - Exercise
    Your poll assumes using the bike as transportation and not for recreation/fun. I don't ride for transportation, unless my truck is in the shop. Your distances fit with your assumption. Many of my rides are 75mi in length or more.
    -------

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    I'm going to want to see the paper when you're done.

    1)-Male
    2)-19 to 28
    3)0x per week winter, 2-10x per week summer, depending on my mood, weather, etc. Probably averages out to around 3x/week overall in the summer.
    4)1-3 miles if for transportation, 15-50 miles if for entertainment (entertainment rides not included in the above count)
    5)Pleasure/exercise (more of the former as I don't really need more of the latter)

    All the same answers for me. I would have had a couple longer options for mileage, and an option for why do you ride--fun!

    1. Male
    2. 50+ (63)
    3. 5 or more - usually 6 (in wintertime, I move to a Schwinn Airdyne, inside, for 30-40 miles per day)
    4. 7 or more - actually average about 35 per day, about 900 miles per month, occasionally over 1,000
    5. Exercise - and utility, use it for all errands I can (economy, environment)

    Unasked 6. Because I really like it!

    I have to take exception to 50+ being the oldest category. Accordingly I refuse to participate.

    So, the only reason you have joined BikeForums is to gather information for a school project, eh? Pity you didn't have the motivation to join just for the sake of a true interest in cycling.

    Just what is the ambit of your "project"? You provide absolutely no details, yet people here are gullible enough to provide information you have solicited. For all we know, you are profiling people on Foo to stalk them.

    Otherwise, why don't you get off your backside, move away from the lazy-arsed computer, and take your survey out on to the streets and do direct interviews with the people who really count.

    You might get a somewhat more accurate idea of just where cycling sits among the general population, rather than skewing your figures by drawing the information from an already biased source (albeit one that is at the lower end of cycling participation on these forums).

    Or... maybe you are part of this current generation of spin where you "make the figures speak your language" no matter if the figures say the opposite. You'd make a fine employee for Internet Brands, in that case.
    Dream. Dare. Do.
