Trek Bicycle National Study Reveals New & Emerging U.S. Cycling Behaviors During Coronavirus Pandemic

WATERLOO, Wis., April 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — As many Americans across the country are facing extended social distancing orders due to the COVID-19 pandemic, consumers are turning to cycling as an alternate means of essential transportation, for mental and physical health, and to keep the kids busy. Today, Trek Bicycle released new results from a nationally representative survey of over 1,000 American adults 18-years-old and over, conducted in partnership with research firm Engine Insights. The study explores how cycling behaviors and attitudes are shifting amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, with results revealing that bike riding is perceived as a “safer” activity and mode of transportation compared to public transit, and more people are biking than before.

“Much better than expected”

I didn’t expect much for the price and what I got in return was much better. The best thing about this top tube bag is that it fits my 4.3” cell phone and I’m able to use the touchscreen through the plastic without any problems. Thus, during a ride, I…Read more

“Does the job”

As simply a bike pack, assuming there was not phone display, I would rate this product 2 stars. The three attachment straps are all much too long for my road bike, so I had to customize them a little bit. Assuming you have some very amateur skill

Science of Cycling: Aerodynamics & Wind Resistance

Top Navigation Bar

 

 Aerodynamics Page: 1 of 2

Aerodynamics


Every bicyclist has to overcome wind resistance. Most recreational
bicycles in which the rider sits up have very poor aerodynamics. While newer
bicycles are being designed with better aerodynamics in mind, the human
body is simply not well designed to slice through the air. Bicycle racers
are aware of the problem of wind resistance and over the years have developed
techniques for reducing it. Bicycle designers and inventors have experimented
in developing alternative bicycle designs and HPVs (human- powered vehicles)
with an emphasis on better aerodynamic performance.

Charley “Mile-a-Minute” Murphy was an early cycling racer. His
“mile-a-minute” feat was accomplished in 1899. At that time he
traveled faster than the fastest automobile. Notice the large windscreen
on the train in front of him which greatly reduced wind resistance.

Bicycle History – Evolution of Cycling

Picture Of Old Bicycle

Bicycles and motorcycles are an integral part of our lives. They provide easy and cheap ways of public transportation for many billions of people all around the world. However, ease of transport was not always so widespread. Over past several centuries, many inventors worked hard on the production of various two-wheeled transport devices. This is the place where you will find out how they managed to produce such groundbreaking devices that are today strongly integrated into our society.

During the long history of public transportation, there was no greater moment than the discovery of bicycles. From the millennia’s of horseback riding to the global saturation of bicycle use, this section will try to track the origins of this groundbreaking device.

Origins of the bicycle can be traced to several very gifted scientists. Here you can found out about them, and their efforts to create easy to manufacture and easy to

Bicycle News – Cycling Headlines and Information Pages

It is hard to trace the history of the modern bicycle back to its original origins, as no one seems to know exactly when that was!

Bicycles on Pavement


Archeologists have discovered bas-relief and hieroglyphic evidence of two-wheeled vehicles existing in ancient Babylonian and Egyptian societies,
but no ancient relics have ever been found.
Many people believe that the bicycle was invented by Leonardo da Vinci according to a drawing in a notebook;
however, most experts believe that it was either done by his assistant or a fake that was drawn much later.


One thing that experts do not dispute is the creation of the draisine around 1817 by Baron Karl Drais de Sauerbrun of Germany.
This machine was constructed of two wheels connected to a simple wooden frame with a steering mechanism and was patented as a walking machine,
enabling riders to travel up to ten miles
