I've just joined the group and plan to do some back-reading....but I wanted to get this question out there first.
I have been hired (along with one other person) by a city in Canada to create a bike advocacy program. We're at the point in our research where we're trying to get into the mind of the beginning biker.....why they get on the bike and what we should tell them before they do. Any feedback on the following questions would be greatly appreciated.
1) What do you think brings the beginning rider out?
2) What do you think to be the #1 mistake of the beginning rider?
3) If you could talk to the beginning rider before they go out, what
are the things would tell them?
4) What do you think that everyone should know but seldom seem to know
when they start riding?
Any consideration you could give to these questions would be greatly appreciated.
