Gentlemen, Ladies and those otherwise addressed - we know you've been waiting for a good thing, and the survey results are finally ready!
The answers were collected from you all during August 2020 with 1428 unique replies. That's a participation of 0.5% of all subscribers! That's really not too bad, when you keep in mind how popular these kind of surveys are. But we here at /peloton
want to show you that this is all about presenting the information in the subreddit to cater better to our audience! Updated after a few hours to include some
more historical data the final edit that for some reason wasn't copied properly

Without further ado, let's get cracking on the response
You and Cycling
1. Where do you live?
|Country ||2015 ||2016 ||2018 Mar ||2018 Aug ||2019 ||2020 |
|USA ||32% ||28.3% ||22.84% ||25.32% ||20.23% ||24.59% |
|UK ||18.6% ||17.6% ||14.70% ||20.13% ||15.48% ||14.80% |

|Denmark ||3.9% ||3.6% ||4.31% ||3.79% ||7.64% ||5.79% |
|Belgium ||3.8% ||2.7% ||8.15% ||3.57% ||5.78% ||5.36% |
|France ||2.01% ||1.08% ||2.88% ||2.27% ||5.26% ||3.50% |
|Canada ||4.9% ||7% ||6.39% ||4.22% ||4.95% ||4.50% |
|Australia ||5.2% ||4.7% ||3.83% ||4.00% ||4.33% ||3.93% |
|Slovenia || ||0.73% ||0.32% ||1.30% ||1.14% ||2.14% |
|Norway ||2.58% ||1.8% ||1.60% ||1.95% ||2.58% ||1.86% |
|Sweden ||1.08% ||1.09% ||1.44% ||1.41% ||1.75% ||1.43% |
|Ireland ||1.00% ||1.09% ||1.44% ||1.19% ||0.72% ||1.36% |
|Portugal ||1.65% ||1.8% ||2.40% ||1.52% ||1.34% ||1.14% |
|Italy || ||1.45% ||1.44% ||0.65% ||1.03% ||1.07% |
Largely the same picture as ever, with the US leading the way, the UK in second and then a sliding scale of Europeans countries. Slovenia continues to pick its way up the pile for obvious reasons! World Map to demonstrate
2. What's your age?
| ||u17 ||17-19 ||20-25 ||26-30 ||31-35 ||36-40 ||41-50 ||51+ ||Total |
|2015 ||2.22% ||12.04% ||41.51% ||24.66% ||10.68% ||4.87% ||2.94% ||1.08% ||1395 |
|2016 ||1.5% ||8.9% ||40.8% ||24% ||12% ||5.4% ||5.2% ||2% ||887 |
|2018 Mar ||1% ||7.1% ||33.5% ||27.4% ||16.2% ||7% ||5.7% ||2.1% ||617 |
|2018 Aug ||1.7% ||9% ||33.9% ||26.4% ||15.5% ||7% ||5% ||1.5% ||905 |
|2019 ||1.5% ||6.6% ||33.2% ||27.5% ||16.4% ||7.1% ||5.8% ||2% ||972 |
|2020 ||1.3% ||6.8% ||31.7% ||28% ||16.6% ||7.2% ||5% ||2.5% ||1420 |
Pretty much the same as last year, with the usual reddit demographics of majority 20 somethings dominating.
3. What's your gender?
| ||'13 ||'14 ||'15 ||'16 ||'18 (1) ||'18 (2) ||'19 ||'20 |
|Male ||97.2% ||97% ||94.9% ||93.4% ||93.3% ||93.6% ||95.1% ||94.9% |
|Female ||2.8% ||2.7% ||4.8% ||5.3% ||5.3% ||5.4% ||3.7% ||4.8% |
|Other ||- ||0.33% ||0.29% ||0.78% ||0.76% ||- ||- || |
|Non-Binary ||- ||- ||- ||- ||0.64% ||0.99% ||1.2% ||0.4% |
More normality here for reddit.
4. How much of the men's season do you watch/follow?
|Type ||March '18 (%) ||August '18 (%) ||2019 (%) ||2020 (%) |
|Grand Tours ||84.7 ||92.0 ||90.2 ||87.3 |
|Monuments ||79.1 ||74.9 ||79 ||75.9 |
|WT Stage races ||67.4 ||62.4 ||70.5 ||71.7 |
|WT One day races ||73.3 ||59.8 ||62.3 ||60.7 |
|Non WT Stage races ||32.6 ||16.7 ||17.4 ||25 |
|Non WT One day races ||34.8 ||13.7 ||17.4 ||20.7 |
|Literally everything I can consume ||35.9 ||18.1 ||21.1 ||27.1 |
Whilst GT following may be down (somehow), all the lower level stuff is up, which makes sense considering how desperate we have been for any
racing during the season shutdown.
5. Do you maintain an interest in women's professional road racing?
|Do you maintain an interest in women's professional road racing? ||'19 ||'20 |
|Yes ||49.8 ||49.2 |
|No ||50.2 ||50.8 |
Still very much a half/half interest in women's cycling on the subreddit.
6. How much of the women's season do you follow?
The following is true for the half of you that follows womens cycling.
|How Much ||% |
|Just the biggest televised events ||63.15% |
|Most of the live televised/delayed coverage stuff ||29.08% |
|All televised racing ||5.09% |
|Down to .Pro & beyond ||2.69% |
7. How long have you been watching cycling?
|How Long ||% |
|Under a year ||2,95% |
|1-3 years ||19,50% |
|4-6 years ||19,85% |
|7-9 years ||14,10% |
|10-12 years ||13,81% |
|13-15 years ||7,15% |
|15-20 years ||10,73% |
|20-25 years ||6,17% |
|25 years + ||5,75% |
Simplified the years a little this time, but whilst we have a fair number of newbies, most people have picked the sport up since around 2013/14.
8. Do you have like/dislike feelings about WT teams?
Once more, 14.4% of people really don't have feelings on the subject.
Of those that do:
| ||AG2R ||Astana ||Bahrain ||Bora ||CCC ||Cofidis ||Quick-Step ||EF ||FDJ |
|Like ||352 ||213 ||127 ||770 ||156 ||116 ||847 ||724 ||423 |
|Meh ||775 ||620 ||773 ||415 ||889 ||896 ||310 ||448 ||700 |
|Dislike ||52 ||356 ||263 ||31 ||112 ||141 ||71 ||37 ||53 |
|Karma ||300 ||-143 ||-70 ||739 ||44 ||-25 ||776 ||677 ||370 |
| ||Israel ||Lotto ||Michelton ||Movistar ||NTT ||Ineos ||Jumbo ||Sunweb ||Trek ||UAE |
|Like ||135 ||364 ||517 ||231 ||101 ||304 ||925 ||279 ||383 ||118 |
|Meh ||740 ||764 ||626 ||646 ||931 ||414 ||282 ||805 ||765 ||734 |
|Dislike ||302 ||40 ||52 ||326 ||121 ||562 ||53 ||97 ||42 ||331 |
|Karma ||-167 ||324 ||465 ||-95 ||-20 ||-258 ||872 ||182 ||341 ||-213 |
So, the most popular team this year is Jumbo-Visma, followed by Quick-Step & Bora-hansgrohe. Least popular are Ineos & UAE.
As per usual, no one cares about NTT & CCC, with nearly 81% of users rating NTT as meh. Pretty damning stuff.
Lastly, we have the usual historical comparison of how teams have fared over time, normalised to respondents to that question on the survey
Things to note then, firstly that the Astana redemption arc is over, seeing them back in the negative, maybe Fulgsangs spring issues helped aid that? The petrodollar teams of UAE & Bahrain are stubbornly negative too, with Israel keeping up the Katusha negative streak. Meanwhile, at the top end, EF & Jumbo go from strength to strength, whilst some others like Sunweb are sliding over time - their transfer policies no doubt helping that.
10. Do you ride a bike regularly?
|Answer ||2018Mar ||2018Aug ||2019 ||2020 |
|For fun ||61.5% ||63.4% ||59.9% ||62.9% |
|For fitness ||59.3% ||59.6% ||54.8% ||59.8% |
|For commuting ||46% ||46% ||45.6% ||40% |
|For racing ||20.6% ||20.6% ||15.9% ||17.7% |
|No, I don't ||14.2% ||12.9% ||14.8% ||13.6% |
Still a fairly small group of racers out of all of us
11. Out of the sports you practice, is cycling your favourite?
A new addition to the survey prompted by a good point last time, just over half of us rate cycling as the favourite sport we actually do.
12. What other sports do you follow?
|Sport ||# |
|Association Football / Soccer ||50.78% |
|Formula 1 ||35.81% |

|Sport ||# |
|Cyclocross ||22.10% |
|Track Cycling ||14.34% |
|MTB ||8.97% |
|BMX ||1.20% |
13. Out of the sports you follow, is cycling your favourite sport?
Good. Makes sense if you hang out here.
14. How often do you participate in a /Peloton Race Thread whilst watching a race?
| ||2015 ||2016 ||2018Mar ||2018Aug ||2019 ||2020 |
|I always participate in Race Threads during races ||2.8% ||2% ||2.2% ||4% ||2.5% ||3% |
|I follow Race Threads during races ||41.7% ||36.7% ||38.1% ||42.1% ||42.5% ||38.9% |
|I often participate in Race Threads during races ||16.8% ||19% ||16.5% ||18.9% ||15.2% ||13% |
|I rarely/never participate in Race Threads during races ||38.7% ||41.3% ||43.1% ||35% ||39.8% ||45.1% |
Slightly less invested than before, reverting back to an older trade.
15. How do you watch Races?
|Method ||2018Mar ||2018Aug ||2019 ||2020 |
|Pirate Streams ||62% ||46.5% ||50.2% ||47.9% |

|Desperately scrabbling for Youtube highlights ||37.9% ||30.2% ||28.2% ||24.9% |
|Paid Streaming services ||32.3% ||35.4% ||38.3% ||46.3% |
Year on year, paid streaming services go up - the increasing availability of live content legally continues to improve, and so do the numbers on the survey.
16. Where else do you follow races live (in addition to watching them)?
|Type ||2018Mar ||2018Aug ||2019 ||2020 |
|/Peloton race threads ||86.2% ||83.4% ||80.2% ||76.9% |
|Twitter ||30.5% ||34.7% ||33.3% ||38.3% |
|PCS Liveticker ||- ||- ||30.2% ||32% |

|/cyc/ ||- ||1.3% ||1% ||0.6% |
|/peloton IRC ||~0 ||0.8% ||0.4% ||0.5% |
The PCS liveticker continues to have a strong following, whilst the cyclingnews ticker slowly slides into less usage over time.
17. Do you use /Peloton mostly in classic reddit or redesign when on the desktop?
|Type ||2018 Aug ||2019 ||2020 |
|Classic ||75.1% ||67.2% ||46.2% |
|Redesign ||24.9% ||32.8% ||53.8% |
Time to abandon ship. The end has come.
18. With what version of reddit do you browse the sub?
|Version ||2019 ||2020 |
|Official App ||17.9 ||31.1 |
|Desktop Classic ||37.8 ||25.8 |
|3rd Party App ||18.3 ||17.2 |
|Mobile Web ||12.4 ||14.7 |
|Desktop Redesign ||13.7 ||11.2 |
Phone browsing is very much in vogue.
19. How did you find the sub?
|How ||% |
|Through other forms of reddit, f.e. /bicycling ||48.33% |
|Too long - can't remember ||38.65% |
|Google search ||9,11% |
|My friend told me ||2,28% |
|I wanted to talk about my exercise bike ||0.78% |
|Twitter ||0.5% |
|Lantern Rouge Youtube ||0.28% |
Other bits and bobs
20. Did you think back in March we would see any more racing this year?
Despite the threat, we have seen racing again
21. Will we manage to fulfill the rest of the UCI calendar without further Covid-19 issues postponing more races?
Sorry to you 25%, Amstel, Roubaix & a bunch of other races have falled foul of COVID-19 related cancellations.
22. When did you become aware of Alexander Foliforov?
|When ||% |
|Before the 2016 Giro ||3,25% |
|22nd May, 2016 ||15,55% |
|On /pelotonmemes in 2020 ||21,13% |
|Who? ||60,07% |
If you didn't know of the man, watching him demolish the Giro field in 2016 on the stage 15 ITT should help to gain understanding
23. Who will win the 2020 Tour de France?
|Rider ||% |
|Roglic ||52,12% |
|Bernal ||16,57% |
|Pinot ||9,24% |
|Dumoulin ||7,9% |
|N.Quintana ||2,82% |
|Pogacar ||1,41% |
|Richie Porte ||0,35% |
We can safely say that most of us were wrong about this one.
That's not a lot of confidence in Richie Porte either, the man who was to finish on the third spot of the podium. Alexander Foliforov (0,23%) had just a tiny number of votes less, and that man wasn't even in the race.
24. What for you was the defining cycling moment of the previous decade?
We had a lot of brilliant suggestions, but these were the clear five favourites when we tabulated the results.
- 2018 Giro - Chris Froome Solo Attack
- 2016 TDF - Chris Froome Running up Ventoux
- 2019 TDF - Landslides, First Columbian Winner, Pinot's bitter abandon - This was one race for the ages
- 2016 Paris-Roubaix - Mostly known for Tom Boonen losing. Also, some guy called Mat won.
- 2019 AGR - MvdP with his incredible catch-up for the win.
Honorable mentions go to the Giro 2018, which had Tom Dumoulin winning, and of almost identical fascination to many of you - Tom Dumoulin going on someones porta-potty in the middle of the stage.
Little bit of recency bias perhaps, but that's better than ignoring that this was for the last decade and firmly insisting Tom Boonens 2005 WC win was the biggest thing. Special shoutout to almost all the Danes present in /peloton
who voted for Mads Pedersens WC win last year. It's an understandable reaction.
25. Any suggestions for the Survey? New Questions
- Could you add a section on rider popularity, same as for the teams?
- Ask how people became interested in cycling
- Ask how people watch cycling (e.g. TV Channels/Streaming etc.)
- If you could be an animal for one day, which one would it be?
- Would you wear a facemask while watching a cycling race live?
- Which race do you look forward to see the most every year?
- Favourite riders of your own country?
- How many bikes do you own?
We promise to feature one of these suggestions in the next survey Suggestions
- Always have a “no” or “not interested” option
We will try to implement this. But it will also skew results. About the Survey
- More questions about womens cycling would be nice.
- Less questions about womens cycling
The subscribers are torn on Women's cycling, nearly a 50/50 split there as the survey showed - The moderators at /peloton
are firmly in the "more cycling is better" basket, and we will continue to get as good coverage of womens cycling as possible.
Are you trying to give the moderators PTSD? Because this is how you give the moderators PTSD.
26. Any suggestions for the sub?
- More stationary fitness bike related content
ALSJFLKAJSLDKJAØLSJKD:M:CSAM)=#/()=#=/")¤=/)! - Your moderator seems to be out of function. Please stand by while we find you a new moderator
The Weekly threads are great for these types of questions, where several people can contribute and build up once it is understood which information is relevant.
- Allow limited doping talk in result threads.
Our experience is that "limited" will never be so, if we're going to moderate it fairly. Moderating is not a popularity contest, but believe it or not, we're actually trying to be as fair as possible. and for that, we need rules that are not subjective. Unless you have a stationary exercise bike.
- Written original content is always great - recaps, old race reviews or interesting rider bios, etc.
- More non-race threads
- Podcast discussion?
- Try and do some AMAs with pro cyclists, coaches, trainers, etc
All of these are good suggestions, but remember that all of you can also contribute - The mods are sometimes stretched thin, specially in the middle of hectic race schedules. It's easier if one of you has a way to contact a rider or a person of interest and can facilitate the initial communication.
- Standardize major event thread titles for better search.
We've worked on this! The Official Standard is now as follows: [Race Thread] 202x Race Name – Stage X (Class)
- A wiki that explains how races work. Roles of diff riders/support staff. History of racing.
This sounds as a nice community project for the after-season, and hopefully many of you subscribers can contribute.
Come with suggestions on how to tidy it up!
- Don't assume everyone reading is a man, "thanks, bro". But that goes for all of Reddit. I know you can't fix that.
We have chastised all the mods. They are now perfectly trained in gender-neutral pronouns. Be well, fellow being.
- Have a buy you a beer link for the mods for all the work you do.
If we can implement this for hard liquor, you know we will.
- Remove the spoiler rule during grand tours. It kills the hype.
The spoiler rule is one that is discussed frequently - in general - some users absolutely hate it, but a majority love it. Perhaps we'll include a question in the next survey to see how this divide is exactly.
- Lose the spoiler tag when it is for serious things; Lambrecht death, Jakobsen fall.
We actually do - whenever there is a matter of life or death, we think public information is more important than a spoiler rule. But at the same time, we try to collect all the different posts into one main thread, so to keep things focused and letting very speculative posts meet with hard evidence from other sources.
- Less downvoting of opinions that differ from the fashionable consensus.
This is a tough ask of the internet. While we can agree that voting should be done accordingly to what insights they bring, not subjective opinions, it is very hard to turn that type of thinking around. We can ask of you, our subscribers, that you please think twice about hitting that downvote button, and only do so because of you think a post is factually incorrect, not because it differs with your own subjective opinion.
That's the primary analysis of the survey! Feel free to contribute with how you experience things here!

There are many factors to consider when choosing a brokerage. Regulations typically force US traders to only trade at US brokerages, while international traders have more choice. After considering location you need to consider how much capital you will start trading with as many have minimum deposit levels. Once you’ve narrowed that down you can compared spreads and execution. ECN brokers execute your orders straight through to their liquidity providers, while market maker brokers may pair up your trades with other clients. Market maker brokers typically will partially hedge your positions on the interbank market. Many consider this to be a conflict of interest and prefer to trade at an ECN broker who would have an active motive to see you succeed. Lastly, brokers run inherently risky business models so it is important to consider the risk of bankruptcy. www.forexpeacearmy.com

FAQ: I need to exchange money, how do I do it?
This isn’t what this sub is for. Your best bet is using your bank or an online exchange service. Be prepared to pay a hefty fee. I have money in one currency and need to exchange it into another sometime in the future, should I wait?
Don’t ask us this. We speculate intraday in FX and shouldn’t be relied on to tell you what’s best for you. Exchange the money when you need it. I have an FX account, should I start trading demo or live?
This is highly debatable. You should definitely demo trade until you have mastered how to use the trading platform on desktop and mobile. After that it’s up to you. Many think that the psychology of trading live vs demo trading is massively different. So it may pay to learn to trade live. Just be warned that most FX traders lose almost their entire first account so start with a low affordable balance. What’s money management?
Money management is a form of risk management and is arguably the most important aspect of your trading when it comes to long term survival. You should always enter trades with a stop loss - the distance of the stop allows you to calculate how large of a percent of your account balance will be lost if your trade stops out. You can run a monte carlo simulation to figure out the risk of having a number of trades go against you in a row to drain your account. The general rule is that you should only risk losing 1-4% of your account per trade entered.

Retail FX traders have been known to program “Expert Advisors” (EAs) to automate trading. It’s generally advisable to stay away from that until you’re very experienced. Never buy an EA from a developer because the vast majority of them are scams. What indicators are best?
That’s up to you to test and find out. Many in this forum dislike oscillating indicators since they fail to capture the essence of what moves price. With experience you will discover what works best for you. In my experience indicators that are most popular with professional traders are those that provide trading “levels” such as pivot points, fibonacci, moving averages, trendlines, etc. What timeframe should I trade?
Price action can vary in different timeframes. In longer term timeframes the price action and fundamentals are much more clear. Unfortunately it would take a very long time to figure out whether or not what you’re doing is successful on longer timeframes. In shorter timeframes you can often tell very quickly if what you’re doing is profitable. Unfortunately there’s a lot more “noise” on these levels which can prove deceptive for those trying to learn. Therefore the best bet is to use a multi-timeframe analysis, working from top-down to come up with trades. Should I trade using fundamental analysis (FA) of technical analysis (TA)?
This is a long standing argument in these forums and elsewhere. I’ll settle it here - you should have an understanding of both. Yes there are traders who blindly ignore one of the other but a truly well rounded trader should understand and implement both into the analysis. The market is driven in the longer term through FA. But TA is necessary to give traders a place to enter and exit trades from a psychological risk/reward standpoint. I’ve heard trading Binary Options is an easy way to make money?
The general advice is to stay away from binaries. The structure of binary options is so that when you lose the broker wins. This incentive has created a very scammy industry where there are few legitimate binary options brokers. In addition in order to be profitable in binaries you have to win 55-65% of the time. That’s a much higher premium over spot FX. Am I actually exchanging currencies?
Yes and no. Your broker handles spot FX is currency pairs. Although they make an exchange at the settlement date they treat your position in your account as a virtual currency pair. Think of it like a contract where you can only buy or sell it as a pair. In this sense you are always long one currency while short another. You are merely speculating that one currency will appreciate or depreciate vs another. Why didn't my order fill?
Even if price appears to cross over a line on your chart it does not guarantee a fill. Different charting platforms chart different prices - some chart the bid price, some the ask price and some the midpoint price. To fill a limit order price needs to cross your limit's price plus the spread at the time that it is crossing. If it does not equal or exceed the spread then it will not fill. Be wary that in general spreads are not fixed. So what may fill at one time may not at another.
Beginners and advanced traders alike can make use of this trading strategy. But as we mentioned, it is all about the speed as some times price can move so fast that by the time a binary options trade is placed, you might end up getting a new opposite signal. Indicators.
