would you happen to have a current e-mail, or fax # to
Bram Moens, or other prominent Dutch recumbent riders,
whom I could ask to participate in our survey? I just
convinced Mike Burrows to partake, and really would like
to have there Brams as well.
If you participate in any local HPV-discussion group,
perhaps you could repost the appended form there, and
solicit for entries?
Thanks in advance, especially for #1 ;-))

HPV Rider Profile INFORMAL Survey send in to: ianf at random.se
I have taken over from Shari Bernhard, who's temporarily between
jobs, the task of assembly, cleanup and formatting of the
recumbent rider bio data. It's gonna be a real treat to us all...
I've never seen that entertaining a collection of people facts and
trivia. All 186 of the 250 of us on the HPV-list, or so. Which
makes it one of the **highest** reply-frequency surveys, that I
know of. It is really shaping up to become a major resource for
all present and future readers of the www.ihpva.org site, to see
if they "fit" into the mold :-)) I already discovered that, at
47 years of age, I was hardly an odd man out there, but seem to
belong to the middle-aged majority for once! Nor was that a sole
statistical-psychological insight derived while working with the
data. Indeed... this, more even than horses, seems to be a
mature, professional woman's sport.
And no, because we do not collect any total or disposable income
data, the survey's pretty useless from a marketing point of view.
But not so from purely sociological one (I also accept pseudony-
mous entries). I guess we need all the knowledge about ourselves
we can gather. Please complete it best you can.
At the same time: we go METRIC. If you can translate your weight
and height (Mass/Size) into kg and cm, and append them after the
imperial units in brackets, you'd be saving me a lot of grief.

* The "Likes:" field is for hobbies, etc.
* Observe that in the "Climbs:" field we'd _prefer_ a common
numerical scale of 5: great climbing ability --to-- 1: a slug.
* On my own I have also added an extra field, "Rides:", which is
for the (approximate total) number of miles OR kilometers ridden
PER YEAR (be sure to include the correct unit; default is metric).
DARKEN THOSE BLANKS, thanks.
PS. I enclose David Gordon Wilson's listing for comparison... as
you see you're not limited to single lines; you can write in
most fields as long as you wish.
Name: David Gordon (Dave) Wilson <dgwilson at mit.edu>
Age: M 68.9
Mass: 75 kg (165 lbs)
Size: 1816 mm (5'11.5") (cm. aren't allowed in SI, right?)
Bikes: Avatar 2000, Wold-Delaire recumbent tandem; Ryan Duplex recumbent
tandem; Regular tandem, not much used nowadays; Pocket Bicycle folder;
also in the stable: the Wilson-Willkie modification of Fred Willie's
Green Planet Special II (made to my sketches); Avatar 1000.
Rides: Used to ride 16,000 km (10,000 miles) a year. Now ride a 26-km round
trip each work day, plus weekend and vacation rides, so I'd guess
that I do 8000 km, 5000 miles, a year. I've had at least 15 cycle-
computers, not one of which has lasted a year, so I have to guess.
The 16,000-km years were measured on old mechanical Lucas cyclometers.
Where: Mass, USA and on into New Hampshire, Maine and sometimes
Vermont, New York (recent AIDS ride there). New Zealand (South
Island tour three years ago.)
Works: at MIT
Likes: hiking, biking, tennis, engineering, old music, being married to
Climbs: Mt. Washington, the Herzfellen (?), I'd guess that I was a 4,
now a 3.
Beard: Couldn't grow one when I tried many years ago.
