Kur-ring-gai Chase National Parks Cycling Survey

Postby AUbicycles » Mon Sep 04, 2017 3:27 pm

This is being prepared by Bicycle NSW

"The Plan of Management (PoM) for Ku-ring-gai Chase and associated National Parks is being updated and contributions for the PoM have been requested. BNSW is preparing a contribution for this hugely popular cyclist destination. Please take 10 minutes to tell us about your use of Ku-ring-gai Chase NP to strengthen our submission on your behalf."

Very short, takes a few minutes and quite simple questions.

Some oddly worded questions in that lot. Survey seems slanted towards roadies in groups on sealed areas, very little to MTB riders.

Agreed, and IMO not a very well thought out survey from a quantitative view, i.e. doesn't distinguish between commuting, solo/training, group rides, road, CX, MTB etc.
Road: S-Works Tarmac SL5 etap
Commuter: Trek Boone 9, Ultegra cable
Offroad: Old school Yeti 575, XT/Sram mix

It may be slanted because it is about road changes or improvements rather than broader cycling activity.

It also fails to ask some relevant questions, eg where & when you are there. I have mostly been to Akuna Bay & West Head, early on a weekend morning when cycle traffic is high but motorised traffic is light. Bobo, McCarrs Ck Rd & other times or days & the experience may be quite different.

Also, the survey doesn't ask/allow for any recommendations. I'd advocate that the Three Gorges (Galston, Berowra and Bobbin Head) should all be 50km speed zones. These are national parks, not public race tracks.
