Golden Rule of Mechanics


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
