Walking and Biking Video Survey

Enter to win fabulous prizes that encourage physical activity in the great outdoors by submitting a 3-minute video.


The purpose of conducting a video intercept survey is twofold:

  1. Assess community perceptions of the built environment as it supports/inhibits walking or biking as a modes of transportation and enjoyment.
  2. Video to be used as part of a media campaign, success story, or other means of influencing decision makers through education.

Goal: The goal of this project is to have a library of videos with a wide range of participants from around the state describing what influence the built environment has on their physical activity levels. Videos can also be used as an educational tool for all levels of public health.

Location: Trails, sidewalks, bike/walking paths, located in urban, suburban, and rural environments. Both supportive and non-supportive locations are beneficial.

Eligibility: Ages +18, men and women, all levels of fitness/ability that are willing to sign a media release waiver.

What do we want to know?

  • We are trying to understand what helps or keeps people from walking/biking in their community. Do you walk/bike much? If so, how often/long/far do you go for a walk/bike?
  • Do you walk/bike to get somewhere or for enjoyment/physical activity/other purpose?
  • What makes it easier or more enjoyable for you when you are walking/biking (good paved trails/sidewalks, destinations nearby, lighting, people to walk with, etc.)
  • What makes it more difficult for you to walk/bike in your community?
  • If you could tell your city/campus/etc. something that you would like to see changed to make walking and biking for you and/or your family, what would that be?
  • Is there anything you would like us to know about walking/biking in your community that we haven’t asked?
