Something I discovered today!
I was riding today, as usual. I discovered something that I should have noticed long ago. It was about my calves, remember how the calves look like? It is shaped like an aerofoil, just that in the opposite direction. You guys know about the teardrop shape that is supposed to help create lift? However, ours calves are in the opposite direction and that creates drag.
Maybe it was because I am studying the Physics of Fluid now and thus thought more about aerodynamics. Have you guys seen the backward riding thread some time back? Maybe backward riding is the way to go, since we will be having 2 "aerofoils", hehe. I bet we can go faster that way if the bicycle would allow our upper body to have a low position while cycling backwards.
