Recruiting Women+ for a Study on Mountain Biking in Atlantic Canada
Mountain biking is increasing in popularity across Atlantic Canada and we want to understand how mountain biking is experienced by women+ 19yrs and older.
What does Women+ mean?
Women+ intends an inclusive definition of women. We are welcoming and respectful of women, including trans women and those that are nonbinary, gender non-conforming, and any others who identify as a woman.
This study is focused on exploring motivation, enablers and constraints to participating in mountain biking and identifying women+’s social and economic impact on mountain biking communities in Atlantic Canada. Women+ ages 19yrs and older that reside in Atlantic Canada (NS, NB, PEI, NL) can voluntarily participate in a short survey. The survey will take 20-30 minutes to complete. The survey will be anonymous, and the sample population will be recruited through Mountain Bike Atlantic and other Atlantic Canada bike clubs and organizations.
Participants that complete the survey will have a chance to win a prize package of swag i.e. t-shirts, hats, coffee, mug, etc.
