Sorry, I did try, but it was an endless list of questions and I ran out of steam, so gave up. Also I have two sports, cycling and table tennis. Both have equal priority in my life for the last 50 years, but answers were not always the same.
 
I tried. I gave up.

Not everyone who cycles sees it as a sport, nor measures performance.
In fact, I'd suggest those who cycle for utility (commuting) or pleasure are in a different mindset (and therefore have different mental states and outcomes?) than "serious" competing, performance measuring athletes.

Personally, I believe that the rhythmic pedalling, the fresh air and the different views are incredibly important to a healthy mind. For a few weeks after I got a gps and started "racing" myself on a commute I lost that. I copped on.

Good idea, very poor execution. Sorry.

OK - felt I should give it a try as I cycle - and went to Bangor

gave up

not really relevant to some bloke who goes out riding a bike on his own 3-4 times a week (wife says s** off it's every damn day - whatever)
FAR too many VERY close questions which I just wasn;t really sure what the answer was

would apply really well to someone who plays rugby (e.g.) or RUNS in a competative manner but people who take part on a pure fitness and wellbeing level and have no interest in times and distances etc - it is too much


also - quite intrusive - do you REALLY need to know EXACTLY how old I am (between 1 and 100) and EXACTLY how long I have been in a committed relationship???

I suggest you talk to an expert in creating surveys - my wife used to do thinks like that which is why I know stuff

Otherwise -- good luck -sorry

I think I've come across this type of survey before. It starts off with easy Q&A's, but as it proceeds, it throws back at you similar questions, with ever increasingly difficult choices. The theory is that it becomes impossible to hide your true feelings. The scores are calculated and a black box spits out an analysis or a graph supporting the assumptions that were made in the first place.

When I was on the receiving end, the whole process was explained and we persevered to the end of the questions.
Without an explanation and when it is entirely voluntary, the option to quit half way through is the obvious choice.

To the OP, should you return, explain the process and make it simpler, otherwise the option to go out for a bike ride will be the choice that most on here will take.

I tried it as well, too much of a chore.

Also seems too weighted towards the sport/competition angle. Didn’t look very relevant to me as a commuter so is missing out on a sizeable chunk of people who cycle regularly.
