An increase in cycling rates among all ages has sparked the need to learn more about how to make cycling possible and safe. Learning about why and how older adults cycle is no exception, especially since remaining physically active and engaged supports overall wellness.
Now in its fourth year, the Year 4 of the 50+ Cycling Survey will build on past survey findings, including how COVID impacts lives of older adults. Survey results provide transportation planners and engineers, public health professionals, and journalists with better information about the needs of older adults who cycle, similar to what we know about kids that walk or bike to school.
Input from all 50+ cyclists, regular or occasional, is encouraged. Past year respondents are also encouraged to take the survey for two important reasons:
There are three parts to the survey. The first two take 10 to 12 minutes to complete. The third, optional part is an online journal to be completed during or after a ride.

The survey will remain open through March 31, 2022.
