[RC] Growth Rates in Endurance - Truman Prevatt
I have started an ongoing process to analyze the data on the AERC
database to try to determine some trends in the sport. The first two
results are online. They can be found at
The first two are the same data in a different format and looks at the
growth rate in three categories at a regional and national level. The
categories are LD, "endurance" which is defined for the analysis as not
LD and not 100 milers, and 100 milesrs.
The data from 1996 through 2001 are used to three different growth
rates: number of rides, yearly average ride size and total number of
The third document describes the results of an analysis to look at the
impact of Pioneer (multiday) rides. The same type of analysis is used on
the categories of "endurance" (same as above) which includes multidays.
Further the Pioneer rides are broken out as are the single day rides
and analyzed separately.
I used fairly standard methodology on this analysis and would be more
than happy to answer any questions. Be sure to read the comments that
accompanies this analysis.
