News from Bicycles Network Australia and the Australian Cycling Forums
Done. Very relevant and well formatted
If anyone wants an A4 poster or half A4 flyers (black white) to print and take to club races etc, just let me know.
Done as well.
Going to ride Mont Ventoux in 2014 - must train hard, must train hard
Whew - that took a while. I don't know how useful my responses are. But i thought i may as well as I do consider myself a bicyclist who just happens to have had to stop due to injury.
Unicyclists are NOT social animals.
Unicyclist's don't need a training wheel
Done, I expect my online purchases will increase a lot this year.
We are getting closer to the goal of 500 entries.
Currently 365 valid responses - and 60 are incomplete which actually means they will be treated as invalid.
If you know you have an incomplete/invalid response and did not use the option in the survey to save (and return later), you can restart the survey and completely.
Obviously we don't want duplicate entries so no need (and please don't) complete it more than once - instead, tell your cycling buddies.
480 valid responses - almost there.
Thank you to everyone who has taken part.
Over 500 valid responses (about 80 incomplete - this invalid).
We have fulfilled the quota, a nice number as a substantial basis to see what is happening.
Thank you everyone who has completed and who has shared this, a number of people have mentioned that they have shared the survey with friends and cycling groups which is fantastic.
Seemed well constructed and likely to produce some useful insights.
Only problem I had was that after answering that I hadn't had any problems with my online purchases I was forced to answer whether the problems I hadn't had were resolved to my satisfaction. No, they weren't resolved to my satisfaction because I didn't have any problems to resolve ? Or yes they were resolved because I didn't have any problems to resolve ?
Umm... the answer is probably a pineapple, but that wasn't an option.
This question would have only been asked based on a previous response - so if you previously indicated that you have had an order where there were problems, it is then asked whether the problems were solved to your satisfaction, and then if they were not, why.
It is all in the wording and the challenge and task on this side what to try and make the questions clear but also exact so there are no double meanings or influencing responses.
Appreciate the feedback.
An update - there are 720 valid responses. (about 120 invalid which means incomplete so will be discarded).
A great results, CyclingTipsBlog helped with a small announcement to attract about 150 extra participants.
My question for participants - of all the questions asked, which one or ones in particular would you love to find out the a resulst for, which are the highlight questions/results?
I forget...was there one about MHL? Only half kidding...
744 (complete) responses - and will close in just over 24 hours.
Lets get 6 more responses to crack the 750!

Got the 750... now 766, so thank you everyone who pitched in.
775 complete/valid responses at the survey end.
Thank you kindly to all who have participated, first step is to read the answers and choose the best ones as prize winners - then it is into the numbers to find the most interesting trends and share these.
The winners have been announced on BNA - and also below.
For a chance to win, participants were asked:
If you had 1 week, a bike of your choice and unlimited budget, tell us in 25 words or less what would you do?
Most people wanted to go to Europe, The Tour de France was the popular choice though we also saw people dreaming on tours in Asia, cycling and MTBing in New Zealand and of course bike trips in Australia. It was often about the journey and not the bike. Some suggested charitable ideas and there were a few suggestions to encourage the politicians to acknowledge cycling.
