Survey Results - Non Cyclists in London

  1. 1. Design can encourage more people to cycle.<br />A survey of 31 non cyclists in London<br />© Lee Washington <br />
  2. 2. What is your reason for not cycling?<br />80% It’s too dangerous<br />17% My bike would get stolen<br />10% Nowhere to store the bike in my house or flat<br />10% I can’t afford a bike<br />10% I live too far away to commute by bike<br />
  3. 3. How far do you live from work or college?<br />40% five to ten miles<br />33% one to five miles<br />20% more than ten miles<br />7% less than a mile<br />
  4. 4. How do you usually get to work or college?<br />59% tube<br />22% bus<br />7% overland train<br />7% walking<br />4% car<br />
  5. 5. Do you know anyone who cycles?<br />81% yes<br />19% no<br />
  6. 6. What have they told you about it?<br />The bike is often locked outside their house.<br />they love It<br />Fast - but not always practical<br />They enjoy it but everyone I know who cycles has had an accident<br />Most London cyclists are confident about being onLondon roads...its kindau are or you&apos;re not..noinbetweeners<br />exciting in a dicing with death type way.<br />I think for most people, cycling in London is quite dangerous<br />Scary but love it for the freedom<br />Fast and effective, but I know people whose bike got stolen as well<br />
  7. 7. Will the introduction of Cycle Superhighways encourage you to cycle?<br />52% yes<br />48% no<br />might do, but what about the dangerous factor? I might still get hit by a bus!<br />He needs to get rid of the lorries in London before he adds more cyclists to the mix. I really do think that man is quite thick.<br />Also more bike parking spaces and better anti bike crime<br />I&apos;d like to, but I live on the 3rd floor above a shop in Brixton and have no where to keep my bike.<br />Perhaps, but I feel it&apos;s more of a helmet issue for me. It&apos;s unsafe not to wear one but it messes up my hair if I do.<br />The only issue for me would be over crowding on these new lanes.<br />Someone Iknow died cycling on the streets inLondon, so it&apos;s not a top priority of mine to do it.<br />
  8. 8. What would it take for you to start cycling?<br />A radical change in the way London roads are designed that give cyclists much more space away from buses and motorbikes in particular<br />bike lanes and good weather.<br />more 20 mph area<br />For a scheme to be introduced that is proven to be safe, with a big, defined enough cycle lane - like in Amsterdam! I cycled in Amsterdam and the roads felt more safe in general and I had an overall sense that the other drivers were more sensitive to cyclists.<br />again its a safety issue motorist&apos;s have no respect. also better storage in and around home and work<br />No lorries in central London and fools like Boris away from the strings that control it.<br />a guaranteed that my bike will not get stolen and that drivers would pay more attention to bikers<br />Nothing could make me cycle on London roads. Other cyclists are often rude and aggressive, most have no road sense / road safety training. It&apos;s hot, sweaty, dangerous and time consuming.<br />Safer roads and a fashionable helmet!<br />A safe stylish helmet, some safe cycling lanes, a good raincoat and some courage.<br />
