The online publication Bike Biz recently featured a video series on the science of cycling by Open University, and we thought it was worth pointing out here. Below is the first little bit of the article that was posted and the 1st of the four short films is embedded.

The Science Behind the Bike is a series produced for the Open University by Cyclevox. Four eight-minute films investigate how science and technology have transformed the sport of cycling. The four films – embedded below – are the History of the Hour Record, Technology, Physiology and Forces.
The films feature Olympic gold-medallists Chris Boardman and Rebecca Romero and Paralympian gold-medallist Sarah Storey. Throughout the films viewers hear from design experts and cycling legends such as Graeme Obree, Francesco Moser, Gerard Vroomen, Simon Smart, Esme Taylor and others.
