Researchers at Portland State University would like to invite you to participate in their national study of protected bike lanes. They are asking bicycle riders in six cities across the county to share their experiences riding on protected bike lanes in their cities. In particular, in Washington DC, they are looking for feedback about your experiences on the L Street cycle track.
After conducting targeted "intercepts" of bicyclists on L Street (you may have received a postcard invitation from them already), they are now opening the survey up to get as much feedback as possible. You can take the survey by going to this website:
The survey should take about 10-20 minutes, and will give them valuable insight into what makes a good protected bike lane. They ask that all surveys be completed by November 30th. They’ll be sharing feedback, including what works and what doesn’t work, with the District Department of Transportation, and with a national audience.
Your participation in the survey is voluntary. We will protect the confidentiality of your individual survey responses. If you have concerns or problems about your participation in this study or your rights as a research subject, please contact the Human Subjects Research Review Committee, Office of Research and Strategic Partnerships, Market Center Building Suite 620, Portland State University, 503-725-4288 / 877-480-4400.
