I am a researcher at the University of Gloucestershire. I would like to invite you to take part in a research study. The study is voluntary and you will only be included if you give your permission. The purpose of this study is to explore the psychology of cycling.
I would like to invite you to complete four surveys to explore your personality, your experiences of cycling related pain, and some demographic information about you. There are no right or wrong answers. Please answer each question as honestly as possible.
By participating in this study, you will be providing information that may help us understand psychology and cycling. Results of this study will also help coaches design training regimes that are more appropriate for cyclists' needs. There are no known risks associated with this research. This study has been reviewed by members of the Faculty of Applied Science Research Ethics Panel (FREP).
I will keep all data private and secret. I will keep data in a locked office and only I will have access to your data. I will keep data for five years after the study has finished. After five years, I will destroy the data. Once I have finished the study I will present the results at conferences, and through a designated Facebook page, and I will publish the results in an academic journal.
If you would like to participate in this study, please read the informed consent questions and click yes and then complete the remaining questionnaires. If you are under the age of 18 years of age please fill in the surveys with a parent or guardian present.
The online questionnaire should taken more than 15 minutes to complete.
If you would like to know about the study, or wish to ask questions please contact Martin I. Jones via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
