Share Your Views in the 2013 Ultimate Cyclist Survey

Bicycles Network Australia Ultimate Cyclist Survey

This is your chance to share your views so that we can see where Australian Cyclists prefer to purchase bikes and cycling gear and whether, for example, GST makes a difference.

In 2010 we ran our last survey the results published in The Ultimate Guide Report received a staggering 10,000 downloads (we stopped counting in 2012). Are there  noticeable trends or even a shift in where and how Aussie cyclists prefer to purchase their gear? What do Local Bike Shops offer that make it worthwhile to buy in-store and likewise, what are the advantages and disadvantages of buying online?

    It is pretty rich to lure people to do a survey with the promise of prizes when the ‘prize’ is only a chance to enter a competition which is itself a game of skill – hardly adequate incentive for doing the survey and at odds with most other online surveys.

  3. Thank you for your interest. Yes, the prizes are an incentive and each participant has the CHANCE to win – we clearly disclose the nature of this. A prize is not promised just for participating and I feel it is unreasonable to assume that BNA, let alone most websites would be able to promise each participant a reward at this value.

    The ‘Prize’ is not a chance to to enter a competition rather in entering a competition which is a game of skill, participants have the chance to win these prizes.

    As we state on this page:
    “each participant has a chance to win one of these prizes”

    For your interest, it is necessary to run this as a game of skill as a licensed competition needs to be registered in every state in Australia and is quite expensive and would make it difficult to conduct this at all.

    I respect your choice not to take part. In our 2010 survey where no prizes were offered the published results were downloaded over 10,000 times in 18 months so in my view, many found value even though there was no incentive.
