Measuring Cycling Effort.
Jahnke, Thomas; Hamson, Mike
Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications, v18 n2 p72-77 Jun 1999
Investigates the basic mechanics of cycling with a simple reckoning of how much effort is needed from the cyclist. The work done by the cyclist is quantified when the ride is on the flat and also when pedaling uphill. Proves that by making use of the available gears on a mountain bike, cycling uphill can be accomplished without pain. (Author/ASK)
