Science of Cycling

Found a cool site while searching about aerodynamics..Not very in depth, but interesting if you like to know a little bit about the tech side of things, without being a techie.

I really like the section about the wheel. When you accelerate, you are creating angular and straight motion "simultaneously," which I thought was interesting, because I had never really thought of the forces in that way before.

anyway, here's the link,

Check out the book "Bicycling Science."

It has more bicycle science info than anyone would ever want to know.

Here's the link

Just simple physics. You'll learn all about angular and linear acceleration in your firtst university physics course.
