This is a short overview (goals, exercises) about combining the topic of the Golden Rule of Mechanics with the practice of cycling.
- Students describe the rule in words (F1⋅s1 = F2⋅s2) and use it to evaluate different routes.
- cycle up hills on different sides with different steepnesses
- comparing pictures of different routes across a mountain path, discussing options
- use different gears or tires of different sizes
