  Cyclists Wanted for Research Study  

I am looking for more PARTICIPANTS to be in a RESEARCH STUDY that I am conducting, for my Master's thesis in SPORT PSYCHOLOGY.
This is research that involves cyclists.
My academic institution is in San Diego, California and I'm located in Ottawa, Canada.
My thesis is on cyclists who crash and what it takes to get them back on the bike after they have recovered (whether it's months of recovery or same day).
All road, race, time-trial, and off-road cyclists are invited.
This is mostly geared towards athletic cyclists (who train and/or race) but commuters are welcome too.
The participants would be required to fill out an online survey about their crash experience(s). The school will provide a disclosure letter, ensuring participants that their information will be kept confidential.
If you are interested, or know anyone else who might be, or even better - if you are interested in sharing this information/request with your lists, I would truly appreciate it, and that could help me to get the required number of participants I need for the study. I need about 1000 participants for this study,

I can be contacted at my email at or on Facebook.

  Quote of the Week  
Cross-Training - "If your primary purpose is to improve your running performance, cross-training does not help you much," says Hirofumi Tanaka, Ph.D, an exercise scientist at the Univeristy of Texas at Austin and author of a review of published studies on cross-training. "There is n important principle in exercise trainng called the 'specificity of training'---that is, exercise you perform in practices needs to be as close as possible to the actual competition." ~ From the May issue of Running Times.
