A new online survey measures just how much actual living goes on on bikes -- whether it is eating, applying makeup, flirting or having sex.

As a result, according to the Harris Interactive survey conducted for a company called Scout GPS, cyclists are still distracted despite all the attention paid to the risks.

The survey finds that 11% of the the 1,832 U.S. adults participating in the survey admit to "having participated in a sexual activity while cycling." Predictably, men were three times more likely to admit -- boast? -- that had, at 17%, compared to women, 5%.

By a percentage point, those age 35 to 44 were the leading age group for acknowledging their sexual exploits on moving bicycles. Those 18 to 34 were next.Some 19% say they have eaten using a fork, spoon or knife while cycling, 10% have applied makeup and 9% have flirted with another cyclist.

Those who have read a book while cycling represent only 4%.

While Harris is a respected polling organization and 1,832 is a lot of respondents, the results are not considered scientific. But they are interesting.
