9780711238503: Cycling Science

Cycling can represent sporting drama, environmental awareness, practical mobility, an escape to nature, an aid to fitness, a political commitment, even a desire for ostentatious display. There is perhaps no other sport that encompasses so many different areas of human experience, which is possibly why there are an estimated 13 million cyclists in the UK alone, and over 3 million bikes sold each year. At its heart, the simple process of getting about on two wheels contains a wealth of fascinating science. Cycling Science investigates the scientific wonders that keep the cyclist in the saddle. Each chapter investigates a different area of physics or technology and is organised around a series of questions. What is the frame design? How have bicycle wheels evolved? What muscle groups does cycling exploit? How much power does a professional cyclist generate? Each question is investigated using explanatory info-graphics and illustrations. You can dip into the book for answers to specific questions or read it right through for an overview of how machine and rider work together. The perfect way to analyse your own kit and technique by studying the techniques of the professionals, Cycling Science is the ultimate accessory for any cyclist wishing to understand their craft.

About the Author:

MAX GLASKIN is an award-winning freelance science, engineering, and technology journalist with a special interest in cycling. He has contributed to a vast range of publications from MIT's Technology Review, Biophotonics International, The Engineer and New Scientist, through to Reader's Digest, Discovery Channel Magazine and every serious national UK newspaper. Max has cycled over the Greater Himalaya, co-founded the UK's national mountain bike organisation, performed for the Queen with the Bicycle Ballet and is one of the first 20 inductees to the Mountain Biking UK Hall of Fame. He has also co-presented a BBC TV education series on the technologies of Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Max has twice been nominated for the BT Technology Journalist of the Year - an unusual honour for a freelance - and received the Association for Geographic Information's Journalist of the Year award in 2000 for articles about satellite navigation technology published in the Sunday Times and Engineering magazine. He lives in Brighton.

Review:

"interesting, informative and engaging" How It Works "rather than sucking the joy out of cycling with the appliance of complex science, this fascinating read instead brings a very accessible new perspective through easy-to-understand language and plenty of images. There's loads here you can apply to your own riding as well, for your very own 'marginal gains' strategy.' Cycling Active 'a fascinating read ... a great book for the two-wheeled aficionado' BBC Focus magazine 'a handsome-looking, hardback tome, with nearly 200 glossy pages of thoughtfully-laid out text, photos and colour diagrams.' Bike Soup.cc 'a fascinating introduction to the complexities of what we do with the simple bicycle.' BikeBiz
