Women Specific Mountain Biking Survey

Mountain biking has gained a lot of popularity in the last few years. In addition, there has been a rise of female participation in outdoor adventure sports. I am a female, Recreation Management student at Appalachian State University conducting an evaluation study on women specific mountain bikes and how the design and market for gender specific biking gear is related to one's experience and performance on the trail. You can complete as much or as little of the survey as you desire, you may stop the survey at any time, and your responses will remain confidential if used for research purposes.
