KKBP November 2001 Bicycle Touring Survey
Here are the results of the touring survey run during November. To qualify for the survey, the touring trip had to be at least an overnight trip. No one was supposed to submit more than one trip for the year. I think the results are very interesting because they show us the variety of touring trips and therefore of touring cyclists taking those trips. We can see that some people travel for less than $20 per day, US while others spend more than $100 per day. We get to see the proportions of cyclists who use various methods.
Keep in mind the fact that this is not a random sampling of bicycle touring travelers. Therefore, the proportions among those taking the test are likely to be different from the proportions in the real world. In particular, I think people who take group trips, especially sagged trips, are underrepresented on this survey, although I have no clue what their true numbers are. How in the world a random survey could ever be conducted, however, is quite beyond me.
On this survey and none of the others, I worked to get people to take the survey. One reason for doing so was that fewer people were likely to take this survey as not everyone goes touring and as this survey asks for specific information, which is also likely to result in fewer responses. I also was less worried about someone spamming this survey. And finally, I was hoping to get results from touring cyclists who are less like me. I did so by asking the members of the touring@phred.org (on two occasions) to take the survey. I also wrote to Bike Bits, which is sent out by the Adventure Cycling Association, but Bike Bits did not respond, not even to acknowledge my message. Perhaps nobody reads that mailbox.
In addition, on this survey, and none of the others, I am not going to perform a subanalysis of the various groups. Why? First, I think that most of the conclusions would be pretty obvious and the others would be pretty meaningless. For instance, those who stay in paid lodgings are going to almost always eat in restaurants, have much higher daily expenses, and more likely a greater average daily distance. They are more likely to carry fewer bags as well. On the other hand, looking at the differences between Canadian touring cyclists and US Northeast touring cyclists is unlikely, in my opinion, to tell us anything about either touring or the cyclists. Second, I have put a large amount of effort into incorporating the one subanalysis that I considered the most important into the results; this is the percentage by distance. It seemed pretty obvious to me that the characteristics of longdistance tourers are likely to be somewhat different from those traveling on shorter trips, and for that reason, each result shows a double analysis: by person and by distance. In most cases, the two results are very similar; however, on ocassions they are quite different.
A much shorter subanalysis was also performed with questions ten, eleven, twelve, and thirteen. On these questions, I asked how often cyclists stayed at paid lodgings, free lodgings, paid camping, and free camping. Inasmuch as the nights per trip varied so much, the results are somewhat confusing, so I wrote into the program a calculation of these figures which provides a percentage of the total nights spent at each location.
The Touring Survey
The number of incomplete entries was 27.
The number of cyclists completing this poll was 173 (some of the incomplete entries had the same IP as the following complete entries).
The total number of miles traveled was 144300.
The total number of kilometers traveled was 232323.
That would be 834 miles or 1343 kilometers per cyclist.
The number of nights spent traveling was 2436.
That would be 14 nights per cyclist.
Q. A: What area do you live in?
1 chose "Please Select."
39 are from the US Northeast.
12 are from the US South.
28 are from the US MidWest.
17 are from the US Northwest.
16 are from the US Southwest.
5 are from elsewhere in the US.
29 are from Canada.
7 are from the United Kingdom.
5 are from Australia or New Zealand.
10 are from Europe.
0 are from the Middle East.
2 are from Asia.
0 are from Africa.
1 are from Latin America.
1 are from elsewhere in the world.
The Northeast USA was the most common, but the Canadians again made the best show proportionally.
Q. B: Where did your trip begin?
2 chose "Please Select."
27 began their trip in the US Northeast.
8 began their trip in the US South.
17 began their trip in the US MidWest.
27 began their trip in the US Northwest.
9 began their trip in the US Southwest.
6 began their trip elsewhere in the US.
33 began their trip in Canada.
6 began their trip in United Kingdom.
7 began their trip in Australia or New Zealand.
29 began their trip in Europe.
0 began their trip in the Middle East.
3 began their trip in Asia.
0 began their trip in Africa.
2 began their trip in Latin America.
1 began their trip elsewhere in the world.
Europe received the most attention in proportion to the number of cyclists taking this survey. The US Northwest came in second.
Q. C: Briefly, what was your trip?
NOTE: The answer to this question will be placed at the end, being rather long.
Question 1. What is your age?
1 cyclists ( 1%) or 0% by trip length: Under 16
11 cyclists ( 6%) or 4% by trip length: 1624
29 cyclists (17%) or 16% by trip length: 2534
41 cyclists (24%) or 23% by trip length: 3544
58 cyclists (34%) or 29% by trip length: 4554
29 cyclists (17%) or 16% by trip length: 5564
4 cyclists ( 2%) or 12% by trip length: 65 or over
I haven't computed an average age here, but it probably would be somewhat over 40 as in the past.
Question 2. What is your sex?
155 cyclists (90%) or 82% by trip length: Male
18 cyclists (10%) or 18% by trip length: Female
Note that while women are only ten percent of the survey takers, they have 18% of the total mileage.
Question 3. What kind of bike did you use on your touring trip?
2 cyclists ( 1%) or 0% by trip length: None of the following.
85 cyclists (49%) or 51% by trip length: A touring bike.
25 cyclists (14%) or 11% by trip length: A mountain bike.
21 cyclists (12%) or 9% by trip length: A hybrid bike.
13 cyclists ( 8%) or 6% by trip length: A tandem bike.
10 cyclists ( 6%) or 6% by trip length: Some other diamondframed bike.
14 cyclists ( 8%) or 5% by trip length: A recumbent bike.
3 cyclists ( 2%) or 11% by trip length: A folding bike.
Touring bikes dominate here, but barely. Due to the high average trip length, I wondered if the folding bikes were regular touring bikes with S and
S couplers, but one of the cyclists wrote to say that he used a custombuilt PBW.
Question 4. Where did you carry the bulk of your camping gear and extra clothing?
6 cyclists ( 3%) or 2% by trip length: None of the following.
6 cyclists ( 3%) or 1% by trip length: No camping gear or extra clothing was carried.
24 cyclists (14%) or 9% by trip length: Gear and clothing were carried in a motor vehicle.
56 cyclists (32%) or 19% by trip length: In rear panniers and on the rear carrier.
3 cyclists ( 2%) or 1% by trip length: In front panniers.
57 cyclists (33%) or 42% by trip length: In both front and rear panniers.
6 cyclists ( 3%) or 13% by trip length: In a large underseat bag (recumbent) or other nonpannier type bags.
12 cyclists ( 7%) or 11% by trip length: In a onewheeled bike trailer.
3 cyclists ( 2%) or 2% by trip length: In a twowheeled bike trailer.
NOTE: I made a mistake on this question in saying the underseat bag(s) of a recumbent is (are) not a pannier (panniers), which affected at least one answer. I haven't seen the bag, and I wonder if our definitions of "pannier" aren't different.
Question 5. How many bicycle travelers were on most or all of this tour?
0 cyclists ( 0%) or 0% by trip length: The number kept changing.
72 cyclists (42%) or 41% by trip length: One cyclist.
46 cyclists (27%) or 40% by trip length: Two cyclists.
5 cyclists ( 3%) or 2% by trip length: Three cyclists.
12 cyclists ( 7%) or 5% by trip length: Four to six cyclists.
14 cyclists ( 8%) or 3% by trip length: Six to fifteen cyclists.
13 cyclists ( 8%) or 5% by trip length: Over fifteen and less than two hundred.
4 cyclists ( 2%) or 2% by trip length: Two hundred to about a thousand.
7 cyclists ( 4%) or 2% by trip length: Over a thousand cyclists.
The one and twoparty trips dominate, at least in this survey. However, on my trips, I have met two groups of about 30 each, two groups of five, and the rest have been smaller, with singles and doubles predominating.
Question 6. How many miles did you bicycle on your tour?
20 cyclists (12%) or 1% by trip length: Less than 150 miles (250 kilometers).
36 cyclists (21%) or 6% by trip length: 150 to 300 miles (250 to 500 kilometers).
60 cyclists (35%) or 19% by trip length: 300 to 600 miles (500 to 1,000 kilometers).
32 cyclists (18%) or 20% by trip length: 600 to 1,200 miles (1,000 to 2,000 kilometers).
14 cyclists ( 8%) or 13% by trip length: 1,200 to 2,500 miles (2,000 to 4,000 kilometers).
8 cyclists ( 5%) or 21% by trip length: 2,500 to 5,000 miles (4,000 to 8,000 kilometers).
2 cyclists ( 1%) or 10% by trip length: 5,000 to 10,000 miles (8,000 to 16,000 kilometers).
1 cyclists ( 1%) or 10% by trip length: Over 10,000 miles (16,000 kilometers).
The results here change quite a bit when trip length is included. This meas that most trips are under 600 miles/1,000 kilometers while most touring mileage is on trips over 1,200 miles/2,000 kilometers.
Question 7. How much did you spend in US currency to get from your home to the start of your trip and to get from the end of the trip to your home? Count travel, food, and lodgings expenses.
3 cyclists ( 2%) or 3% by trip length: Unable to calculate.
31 cyclists (18%) or 9% by trip length: Started and ended at home.
6 cyclists ( 3%) or 2% by trip length: Someone else paid these costs or these costs didn't arise out of the touring trip.
49 cyclists (28%) or 15% by trip length: Less than $100.
46 cyclists (27%) or 29% by trip length: $100 to $500.
21 cyclists (12%) or 14% by trip length: $500 to $1,000.
10 cyclists ( 6%) or 11% by trip length: $1,000 to $2,000.
5 cyclists ( 3%) or 5% by trip length: $2,000 to $4,000.
2 cyclists ( 1%) or 13% by trip length: Over $4,000.
As could be safely predicted, longer trips generally have higher starting costs.
Question 8. How much did you spend in US currency per day of the bicycling phase of your trip? Count all expenses for the trip plus any fees.
4 cyclists ( 2%) or 1% by trip length: No figures, unable to calculate, or someone else paid my expenses.
4 cyclists ( 2%) or 1% by trip length: Less than $5.00.
16 cyclists ( 9%) or 5% by trip length: $5.00 to $10.00.
34 cyclists (20%) or 14% by trip length: $10.00 to $20.00.
47 cyclists (27%) or 30% by trip length: $20.00 to $40.00.
41 cyclists (24%) or 18% by trip length: $40.00 to $60.00.
12 cyclists ( 7%) or 9% by trip length: $60.00 to $80.00.
6 cyclists ( 3%) or 1% by trip length: $80.00 to $100.00.
9 cyclists ( 5%) or 20% by trip length: Over $100.00.
Here we find that the longer trips generally have higher costs per day as well. I can see that my lowcost, long trips are really unusual.
Question 9. How many days did the bicycling phase of your trip last?
22 cyclists (13%) or 2% by trip length: An overnight trip (two days).
21 cyclists (12%) or 4% by trip length: Three or four days.
36 cyclists (21%) or 10% by trip length: Five days to a week.
50 cyclists (29%) or 21% by trip length: One to two weeks.
23 cyclists (13%) or 13% by trip length: Two weeks to a month.
12 cyclists ( 7%) or 16% by trip length: One month to two months.
6 cyclists ( 3%) or 19% by trip length: Two months to four months.
2 cyclists ( 1%) or 5% by trip length: Four months to eight months.
1 cyclists ( 1%) or 10% by trip length: Over eight months.
It's a forgone conclusion that the longest trips take more days. Note that there are two peaks here. The first is for "one to two weeks," which is the typical vacation time; only 25% of the cyclists took trips longer than this. The second is for "two to four months," for those who could get the entire summer off. While they were a much smaller group that the first, they covered nearly as many miles.
Question 10. How many nights did you spend at paid lodgings (hotels, motels, hostels, cabins, Bed and Breakfasts) on the bicycling phase of your trip?
1 cyclists ( 1%) or 3% by trip length: No record or uncertain.
65 cyclists (38%) or 28% by trip length: None.
28 cyclists (16%) or 9% by trip length: One or two nights.
15 cyclists ( 9%) or 6% by trip length: Three or four nights.
28 cyclists (16%) or 16% by trip length: Five to eight nights.
23 cyclists (13%) or 17% by trip length: Nine to 16 nights.
9 cyclists ( 5%) or 14% by trip length: 17 to 32 nights.
3 cyclists ( 2%) or 4% by trip length: 33 to 64 nights.
1 cyclists ( 1%) or 3% by trip length: Over 64 nights.
Some number crunching (by the computer, not by me) determined that nights spend at paid lodgings were 40% of the total nights for all cyclists.
Question 11. How many nights did you spend at free lodgings (friends, family, other cyclists, people you met along the way) on the bicycling phase of your trip?
1 cyclists ( 1%) or 1% by trip length: No record or uncertain.
115 cyclists (66%) or 53% by trip length: None.
30 cyclists (17%) or 17% by trip length: One or two nights.
17 cyclists (10%) or 13% by trip length: Three or four nights.
8 cyclists ( 5%) or 8% by trip length: Five to eight nights.
1 cyclists ( 1%) or 3% by trip length: Nine to 16 nights.
1 cyclists ( 1%) or 5% by trip length: 17 to 32 nights.
0 cyclists ( 0%) or 0% by trip length: 33 to 64 nights.
0 cyclists ( 0%) or 0% by trip length: Over 64 nights.
Nights spend at free lodgings were 7% of the total nights for all cyclists.
Question 12. How many nights did you spend at paid camping areas (campgrounds, parks, or anyone who charged you to pitch a tent) on the bicycling phase of your trip?
0 cyclists ( 0%) or 0% by trip length: No record or uncertain.
79 cyclists (46%) or 27% by trip length: None.
26 cyclists (15%) or 20% by trip length: One or two nights.
20 cyclists (12%) or 7% by trip length: Three or four nights.
21 cyclists (12%) or 10% by trip length: Five to eight nights.
11 cyclists ( 6%) or 6% by trip length: Nine to 16 nights.
9 cyclists ( 5%) or 12% by trip length: 17 to 32 nights.
6 cyclists ( 3%) or 11% by trip length: 33 to 64 nights.
1 cyclists ( 1%) or 5% by trip length: Over 64 nights.
Nights spend at paid camping sites were 38% of the total nights for all cyclists.
Question 13. How many nights did you spend camping for free (town parks, woods, medians, farms, back yards, or anywhere else where no one paid) on the bicycling phase of your trip?
2 cyclists ( 1%) or 3% by trip length: No record or uncertain.
107 cyclists (62%) or 44% by trip length: None.
34 cyclists (20%) or 19% by trip length: One or two nights.
5 cyclists ( 3%) or 5% by trip length: Three or four nights.
15 cyclists ( 9%) or 15% by trip length: Five to eight nights.
5 cyclists ( 3%) or 4% by trip length: Nine to 16 nights.
4 cyclists ( 2%) or 9% by trip length: 17 to 32 nights.
1 cyclists ( 1%) or 1% by trip length: 33 to 64 nights.
0 cyclists ( 0%) or 0% by trip length: Over 64 nights.
Nights spend at free camping sites were 15% of the total nights for all cyclists.
Question 14. On an ideal trip, where would you prefer to stay at nights?
13 cyclists ( 8%) or 16% by trip length: No opinion or none of the following.
40 cyclists (23%) or 12% by trip length: Camping in the wilderness.
49 cyclists (28%) or 41% by trip length: Camping in a campground.
13 cyclists ( 8%) or 4% by trip length: Camping with a large group of cyclists.
5 cyclists ( 3%) or 4% by trip length: Staying at hostels.
22 cyclists (13%) or 7% by trip length: Staying at Bed and Breakfasts.
5 cyclists ( 3%) or 3% by trip length: Staying at cyclists' homes.
0 cyclists ( 0%) or 0% by trip length: Staying at relatives' homes.
26 cyclists (15%) or 13% by trip length: Staying at hotels, motels, and inns.
A fair number of cyclists didn't like any of these choices. One told me that his ideal was a variety. However, if I had allowed that option, most might have taken it, and then I would have had no data. Basically, I am forcing a choice.
Question 15. Did you carry cooking gear and cook out for yourself, or did you rely on restaurants for your main meals?
5 cyclists ( 3%) or 4% by trip length: No opinion or none of the following.
12 cyclists ( 7%) or 4% by trip length: No, I was on a group trip, and all the meals were supplied for us.
66 cyclists (38%) or 39% by trip length: No, I/we basically ate at restaurants.
13 cyclists ( 8%) or 6% by trip length: No, but I/we prepared cold meals most of the time.
2 cyclists ( 1%) or 0% by trip length: No, but I/we mainly ate fast foods.
21 cyclists (12%) or 13% by trip length: Yes, but I/we mainly ate at restaurants.
6 cyclists ( 3%) or 3% by trip length: Yes, but I/we depended more on cold foods.
0 cyclists ( 0%) or 0% by trip length: Yes, but I/we ate mainly fast foods.
48 cyclists (28%) or 31% by trip length: Yes, I/we cooked the main meal most days.
Not many ate fast foods. We seem to have two strongly divided groups: those who cook out or otherwise fix their own meals (39%) and those that prefer restaurants (50%).
Question 16. What kind of roads did you ride primarily on?
1 cyclists ( 1%) or 0% by trip length: No opinion or none of the following.
15 cyclists ( 9%) or 5% by trip length: Main highways.
74 cyclists (43%) or 44% by trip length: Secondary highways.
74 cyclists (43%) or 38% by trip length: Paved country (lightduty) roads.
5 cyclists ( 3%) or 2% by trip length: Unpaved dirt or gravel roads.
4 cyclists ( 2%) or 11% by trip length: Off road.
Someone pointed out to me that I should have included a bikeway option with this, and I don't know why I didn't, as I have been on three bikeways long enough for a major trip. Someone else asked why I didn't allow for a mixed option: the answer is that we all travel on mixed roads; I wanted some indication of their comparative percentages, and this is a simple way to find out using just one question, although it is certainly less acurate than asking five or more questions, which this information did not warrant.
Question 17. How many cycling miles did you average per day on your trip?
0 cyclists ( 0%) or 0% by trip length: No figures or calculations.
1 cyclists ( 1%) or 0% by trip length: Less than 15 miles (25 kilometers).
7 cyclists ( 4%) or 1% by trip length: 1530 miles (2550 kilometers).
26 cyclists (15%) or 10% by trip length: 3045 miles (5075 kilometers).
71 cyclists (41%) or 40% by trip length: 4560 miles (75100 kilometers).
44 cyclists (25%) or 25% by trip length: 6075 miles (100125 kilometers).
13 cyclists ( 8%) or 10% by trip length: 7590 miles (125150 kilometers).
3 cyclists ( 2%) or 2% by trip length: 90105 miles (150175 kilometers).
8 cyclists ( 5%) or 13% by trip length: Over 105 miles (Over 175 kilometers).
Question 18. In traveling to your starting point and from your ending point back to home, which method of transportation accounted for the most number of miles?
4 cyclists ( 2%) or 3% by trip length: No opinion, none of these.
47 cyclists (27%) or 24% by trip length: Started and ended at home or near home.
60 cyclists (35%) or 23% by trip length: Used a motor vehicle.
4 cyclists ( 2%) or 1% by trip length: Took a bus.
13 cyclists ( 8%) or 9% by trip length: Caught a train.
43 cyclists (25%) or 38% by trip length: Flew by plane.
2 cyclists ( 1%) or 1% by trip length: Took a boat.
Planes are less important than motor vehicles except when the mileage is considered.
Question 19. On your trip, did you personally suffer a real injury; that is, besides pain and some soreness, did you have a physical injury that continued to bother you after 24 hours? (Pick the most serious, if more than one.)
160 cyclists (92%) or 84% by trip length: Nothing, no accident, or no injury that bothered me the next day.
8 cyclists ( 5%) or 10% by trip length: Road rash, other significant abrasions, severe bruising, or strained ligaments.
0 cyclists ( 0%) or 0% by trip length: Minor concussion resulting in nothing worse than headaches.
2 cyclists ( 1%) or 3% by trip length: Puncture wound, cuts, or other bleeding.
2 cyclists ( 1%) or 0% by trip length: Simple fracture or a broken bone.
0 cyclists ( 0%) or 0% by trip length: Major concussion resulting in loss of consciousness and/or any shortterm brain injury.
0 cyclists ( 0%) or 0% by trip length: Compound fracture or skull fracture.
0 cyclists ( 0%) or 0% by trip length: Multiple broken bones and other injuries.
1 cyclists ( 1%) or 3% by trip length: Permanent injury or disability of any kind.
I received a message from the party with the permanent injury. A teenage girl had her foot run over by a truck at low speeds, causing some permanent muscle injury. Otherwise, the accident rate here seems to be low, although I have not calculated injuries per mile.
Question 20. Did you personally suffer equipment failure? (Note: Does not include flat tires or chain coming apart; worn cogs, chains, chainrings, or brakepads; replacement or tightening of loose parts; adjustment, lubrication, or other maintenance.)
51 cyclists (29%) or 18% by trip length: None of the following.
100 cyclists (58%) or 52% by trip length: No failures.
4 cyclists ( 2%) or 4% by trip length: Brake or derailleur cable breakage (not adjustment).
11 cyclists ( 6%) or 16% by trip length: Spoke and/or rim breakage or wheel needing rebuilt.
1 cyclists ( 1%) or 0% by trip length: Brake, brake lever, derailleur, shifter, or seat breakage (not ).
1 cyclists ( 1%) or 0% by trip length: Freewheel, freehub, or axle failure.
3 cyclists ( 2%) or 3% by trip length: Bad bearings in pedal, axle, bottom bracket, or headset.
1 cyclists ( 1%) or 1% by trip length: Broken seat post, handlebar, crankarm, fork, or frame.
1 cyclists ( 1%) or 5% by trip length: Multiple failures.
This question needs a lot of improvement, but I'm not sure how to fix it. I could ask for the degree of trouble the failure caused, but I thought it would be interesting to be more specific. Unfortunately, there are too many things that can go wrong. I think a number of people selected "none of the following" when they meant "none."
Question 21. Did you carry a preteen child or children with you and where did he/she/they ride?
53 cyclists (31%) or 36% by trip length: None of the following.
112 cyclists (65%) or 60% by trip length: No children went with me/us.
0 cyclists ( 0%) or 0% by trip length: On a baby seat.
0 cyclists ( 0%) or 0% by trip length: In a bike trailer.
1 cyclists ( 1%) or 0% by trip length: On a trailer bike.
4 cyclists ( 2%) or 4% by trip length: On a tandem bike.
3 cyclists ( 2%) or 0% by trip length: On a separate bike.
0 cyclists ( 0%) or 0% by trip length: More than one child, more than one method.
Here's it's beyond question that most of the people selecting "none of the following" meant none. Children on a touring ride are pretty rare, according to these results. Except for on the bikeway in Quebec, I have never seen young children on a tour.
Touring Trips by Name
Note: I had to clean these up due to the differences between operating systems. If I made a mistake with your trip, it was unintended, and I will be happy to correct it. If your trip is not on this list, your entry was not accepted because not all the questions were answered (on the first test, I spent hours correcting those kinds of errors, and I told myself "never again").
These are in the same order in which I received them.
