    Hey Riders,

    I'm working on a project and need feedback from as many riders as possible.
    This feedback is going to directly affect how this project is created, manipulated and executed.
    Please answer this short list of questions and reply/comment with your responses.
    Any and all participation is very much appreciated.
    This project will be directly affecting the Riding community all across the city, and hopefully the world!


    1. How often do you ride your bike?

    2. Do you usually ride solo or in a group?

    3. What kind of bike/bikes do you ride?

    4. How would you describe your riding style: Passive, Neutral or Aggressive?

    5. Do you find it difficult to get a group to ride together during the day? At night?

    6. Would you ride more if you could get a group together more easily?

    7. If there were a solution to get a group ride together more easily would you use it?

    8. Do you feel safer riding solo or in a group?

    9. Have you ever been in a situation where you felt that it would have been safer if you were riding in a group?

    10. Do you feel it is more beneficial to ride solo or in a group?

    1. How often do you ride your bike? Short commutes once or twice weekly. Off road rides about twice a month.

    2. Do you usually ride solo or in a group? 50/50

    3. What kind of bike/bikes do you ride? 2013 DRZ400S

    4. How would you describe your riding style: Passive, Neutral or Aggressive? Defensive on road - Neutral off-road but pushing my skill level.

    5. Do you find it difficult to get a group to ride together during the day? At night? Somewhat as I am downtown TO without a trailer so not easy to get out for a quick ride but network is growing and have attended organized rides / events to meet others.

    6. Would you ride more if you could get a group together more easily? Only to a point as other obligations will allow.

    7. If there were a solution to get a group ride together more easily would you use it? Would give it a try.

    8. Do you feel safer riding solo or in a group? Safer for off-road.

    9. Have you ever been in a situation where you felt that it would have been safer if you were riding in a group? Yes - mechanical issue.

    10. Do you feel it is more beneficial to ride solo or in a group? Safer to ride in a group but I get enjoyment in both scenarios.
