Thank you Loooord for bikes. Bikes being by FAR the most efficient means of transportation. Period. I am talking worlds more than ANY other vehicle incl. cars, jets. even any animals.
This was proven and documented by Richard Weber at some university (I recall Duke or somewhere on the East coast of U.S.). Google it. Absolutely awesome. No wonder there is that special something that happens when you bike...yeah, it's called YOU workin in perfect harmony with a MACHINE to acheive the most efficient thing in existence!
"A bicycle's performance, in both biological and mechanical terms, is extraordinarily efficient. In terms of the amount of energy a person must expend to travel a given distance, investigators have calculated it to be the most efficient self-powered means of transportation. From a mechanical viewpoint, up to 99% of the energy delivered by the rider into the pedals is transmitted to the wheels"
