Hi everyone, my name is Ben Illingworth and I’m a master’s student currently studying Transport Planning at the Institute of Transport Studies at the University of Leeds. For my dissertation I am focusing on the travel patterns of people who participate in various forms of leisure cycling including road cycling. At present, many destinations (particular rural sites) are car dependent for many, as public transport poorly services these areas and do not cater for bike effectively. Obviously, I appreciate that for many road cyclists, the activity takes place from your door!
The link below is a survey that I hope that cyclists across the country will respond to and tell me their travel patterns and participation in cycling. Then I can understand the environmental impact of these travel patterns and propose various changes to make leisure cycling more accessible by all modes.
It would be of great help if anyone could take the time to complete the survey. It will take around 15 mins.
