The Reactivated Bike: take part in a riding research project

Researchers from Wollongong, Sydney and Canberra Universities are conducting a research program about how COVID-19 restrictions have affected bike riding.

Bike riders can complete a survey about what motivates them to reactivate their bicycles after a period of not riding, especially during pandemic conditions.

Data from the survey may be used to develop policies that will encourage more people to ride a bike, particularly as a mode of transport and not just for recreation.

The survey takes around 15 minutes to complete and includes questions about your bike riding behaviours before COVID-19 and after restrictions were imposed. There are also questions about the types of roads or trails you ride on and any bike-related purchases you might have made.

As well as a nationwide survey, semi-structured interviews are also being done with people who took up riding in the City of Sydney during the pandemic.
