SCBC Membership Survey Results

On May 1st, we invited both current and past members of the Stark County Bicycle Club to participate in a membership survey
that is intended to help the SCBC Executive Committee understand the needs of the current and past membership.
This survey was voluntary and was completely anonymous and no responses were tied to an individual.

On May 31st, we closed the surveys and will begin the job of going through your responses and coming up with an action list
for the SCBC Executive Committee to consider future actions. The SCBC Executive Committee will send you the final results
of the survey and proposed changes to address the memberships concerns.

You may review the responses of both the current membership survey and the past membership survey using the links below.
We invited 440 current members (2015 member) and received responses from 109 current members.

A nice Thank You that SCBC recieved

Subject: Stark County Bicycle Club

I wanted to email you to say thanks for your page,

I volunteer with a youth group where we have different activities for local kids.
We are starting a bike sharing program, so we wanted to find some cycling resources
to share with the kids. Your webpage has some great stuff for us to look at-
thanks for all the help! :-)

One of the kids in my group, Sara, found a great resource on bike travel and safety: Can you add this to your list
of resources? She has been helping teach some of the younger kids how to ride, so I thought
this would give her some extra encouragement by sharing her find online. Plus, we thought
it would make a great addition for others to learn from.

If you have more tips or information for the kids, I'll make sure to share it with them.

Thanks again!

Julie Loomis

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

Ride Altitude Gain Data Collection

You will need an altimeter cyclometer or a GPS with barometric altimeter and about 5 min. of time each ride.   We will be averaging all the data on each ride so recording data on the same ride two or more times is helpful!   The more data we collect, the more accurate the results!   Record the total Altitude Gain & any comments.   When you get at least ten rides recorded, give or send them to me.
