Survey Results & Analysis: Introduction 1
In the summer of 2010, Island Pathway’s Bicycle Working Group conducted a survey ofcycling on Salt Spring Island, funded by the Salt Spring Island TransportationCommission. The survey was commissioned to determine how best to help local,regional, and provincial authorities increase cycling safety and participation on SaltSpring Island.Two population groups were targeted for participation in the survey:
Salt Spring residents who have cycled at least once on Salt Spring; and
visitors to Salt Spring who have cycled, or plan to cycle, some or all of their time,onthe island.Separate surveys were created for each of these groups. Several questions were askedof just one of these groups, and several were asked on both surveys.Both the Islander and Visitor surveys were available on paper and online. In total, 432surveys were completed, 292 by residents and 140 by visitors. Approximately 80% ofboth residents and visitors completed the survey online, the remaining on paper.Paper Online

Both surveys were available online and on paper between August 1, 2010 andSeptember 30, 2010.Survey participants were largely self-selected. The survey was advertised in print in TheDriftwood and Island Tides, by notices about it posted in dozens of locations on islandand on the Salt Spring ferries, as well as through e-mails and a variety of websites, eg.The Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition and Momentum Magazine.Three students were also hired to introduce the survey to cyclists, who could then takea paper copy to fill out or a business card with the survey URL on it. These students metcyclists in Ganges, at the Saturday Market, in Fulford and Vesuvius, on the Fulfordferry, and at Ruckle Park.In the following report, the survey questions are presented, the results analyzed, andkey findings summarized. The report is in three sections: first, questions asked only toresidents, then questions asked only of visitors, and finally, questions asked to both.
