Equipment Required:

Bicycle:

The bicycle is a necessary piece of equipment for the sport of cycling due to the fact that the bicycle enables its rider to traverse distances with greater kinetic efficiency than a runner. This enables the rider to travel distance with less kinetic work needed, therefore allowing the rider to not expend as much energy. In order to achieve motion, the cyclist applies a downward force upon the bike pedal, which results in the backhand wheel to turn in a clockwise direction. In accordance to Newton’s Third Law, the clockwise-applied force of the wheel obtains a counter clockwise, opposite, equal reaction force from the ground. Thusly, the bicycle undergoes forward motion as a result of the opposing, forward reaction force from the ground.

Helmet:

As well, the cyclist’s helmet plays an impactful role in securing the safety of the rider due to the fact that the helmet falls in accordance with Newton’s First, Second, and Third Laws. Newton’s First Law applies to the functionality of the helmet considering that when the helmet is in motion on the cyclist’s head, the helmet will continue to be in motion, unless the cyclist falls off the bike or decelerates. Therefore, the helmet would end its cycle of motion. This relates to Newton’s First Law, as the Law affirms that an object in motion would continue to be in motion unless enacted upon by an unbalanced force. Newton’s Second Law relates to the helmet due to the helmet undergoing the same acceleration as the cyclist riding on the bicycle. This due to the force of the cyclist’s forehead applying onto the helmet, therefore allowing the helmet to obtain the same force as the cyclist on the bicycle. Newton’s Third Law applies to the movement of the helmet since the helmet creates an opposing equal force when the cyclist falls off his/her bicycle onto the ground. The helmet creates an opposing force on the ground as the helmet absorbs the force the ground inputs on the helmet, and the helmet forms an output force on the ground as a result.

Cycling Uniform:

The cycling suit is valuable piece of equipment the cyclist needs in order to have an appealing ride for the reason that the form-fitting suit enables the cyclist to become more aerodynamic when on the bike. The suit allows the cyclist to become aerodynamic as the material compacts the cyclists muscles, hence making the cyclist feel less impacted by the air resistance present on the bike when in motion. The cyclist achieves greater aerodynamic potential on the cycle, contributing to increased speed and increased kinetic energy output.
