Because Bikes Survey Series

Because Bikes Matter


Cycling is changing and everybody is talking about it; brands, industry players, race organizers, athletes, folks on the street, everyone.

Amateur Racing is dying.

Pro teams are folding.

Interbike is done.

World Tour Racing is no longer “The One True North.”

Fondos, Gravel Racing, Endurance Epics, Brevets and Experiential Events, are all (now) a substantial part of the story.

Clearly,  in 2020 and beyond, the future of cycling is diverse, interdisciplinary and inclusive.

But what do all these changes mean? Especially for Industry Stakeholders. Where (exactly) is cycling headed and how (exactly) are getting there? It’s time to stop guessing. It’s time for dialogue, discourse, and some serious deep-diving. It’s time for an ambitious national “conversation” with the people that matter the most; everyone who rides a bike, irrespective of discipline and ability levels. It’s time to recognize that a lot of what’s happening in cycling is happening from the ground up. With that in mind, let’s ask real cyclists a series of engaging questions about real stuff, and then, finally, let’s build an informed Road Map—Facts, Specifics, Insights—to the future of our sport.
