Bicycle Mechanics - BEFORE and NOW.......
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Except possibly for high speed downhill situations, wouldn't the horse outperform the bike in most riding situations?
Sometimes if I'm climbing a big, steep hill, I'd gladly trade in my granny gear for a willing horse :)
A bicycle will obviously make human travel far more efficient. So would a horse. Now...here's the clincher...how about making a bicycle for a horse. Then ride the horse on the bicycle. Lance wouldn't have a chance against you!

The horse would probably get pissed off because the saddle pinches his stuff :(
Humans actually have greater endurance than horses, typically.
Given a long enough race between a horse and a human, the human should win.
It might require fast walking speeds and several hundred miles, but still.
