An investigation into attitudes towards, and experiences of, sexual minorities in cycling

  • Jack Hardwicke (Creator)



This dataset presents data collected via an online survey examining the attitudes toward, and experiences of, sexual minorities in cycling.

The survey has been designed to address both of the research aims stated above and is effectively two surveys in one. Participants that identified as LGBTQ+ were asked about their experiences, and those that identified as heterosexual were asked about their attitudes. Branching was used on relevant questions to ensure participants only saw questions relevant to them and their answers to specific questions.

For the measurement of attitudes, the survey used The Attitudes Toward Lesbians and Gay Men Scale (Herek, 1984) and the Attitudes toward Transgender Men and Women (ATTMW) scale (Billard, 2018)

The raw data can be filtered to view responses from LGBTQ+ identifying participants or straight identifying participants. Columns I-AD displays the questions for LGBTQ+ participants. Columns AE-BF displays the questions for straight identifying participants.

Participants were recruited through distribution of the online survey via social media (Twitter and Facebook) to gather the views of cyclists with all ages (16+), abilities, gender identities, sexual orientations and disciplines welcome to participate.

The survey was constructed and hosted on Microsoft Forms.

The survey was open from 2nd August to 15th October 2022.

All questions asked and participant responses can be seen on the dataset. No personal identity is presented, and survey responses were anonymous.
