A new, updated edition of a popular book on the history, science, and engineering of bicycles. The bicycle is almost unique among human-powered machines in that it uses human muscles in a near-optimum way. This new edition of the bible of bicycle builders and bicyclists provides just about everything you could want to know about the history of bicycles, how human beings propel them, what makes them go faster, and what keeps them from going even faster. The scientific and engineering information is of interest not only to designers and builders of bicycles and other human-powered vehicles but also to competitive cyclists, bicycle commuters, and recreational cyclists. The third edition begins with a brief history of bicycles and bicycling that demolishes many widespread myths. This edition includes information on recent experiments and achievements in human-powered transportation, including the "ultimate human- powered vehicle," in which a supine rider in a streamlined enclosure steers by looking at a television screen connected to a small camera in the nose, reaching speeds of around 80 miles per hour. It contains completely new chapters on aerodynamics, unusual human-powered machines for use on land and in water and air, human physiology, and the future of bicycling. This edition also provides updated information on rolling drag, transmission of power from rider to wheels, braking, heat management, steering and stability, power and speed, and materials. It contains many new illustrations.

Interesantísimo libro dirigido al entrenamiento de los deportes de resistencia. Con un formato súper práctico y muy fácil de leer, este libro no pretende ser un amplio compendio del enorme y controversial saber actual, sino que deliberadamente se ha pretendido que sea sencillo. El libro sirve para entrenadores y para atletas. Pretende partir de la práctica y de los procesos a seguir al desarrollar un programa, con ideas claras globales. Y si ello despierta su inquietud, se anima al lector a profundizar en los conocimientos específicos. A lo largo de 320 páginas, el lector descubrirá cuatro partes bien diferenciadas. La primera de ellas, "El modelo de negocio y atención al deportista", se destina exclusivamente a los entrenadores que quieren considerar su labor como una profesión. La segunda y la tercera, "Criterios para la dosificación de las cargas" y "Pasos a seguir para elaborar un programa", muestran los aspectos teóricos del conocimiento. Mientras que la cuarta y última parte, "Bases teórico-prácticas sobre diferentes aspectos del proceso de entrenamiento", presenta en cortos capítulos la base y el complemento de lo desarrollado anteriormente. Estos pequeños y prácticos capítulos despertarán gran interés en el lector: - Principios del entrenamiento deportivo. - Estructura de una sesión. - Entrenamiento polarizado. - Puesta a punto. - Interacción de los sistemas de producción de energía y de potencia. - Nutrición aplicada. - Periodización nutricional. - Psicología. - Aspectos hormonales. - Aspectos propios de la mujer. - Actuación ante lesiones. - Potenciación post-activación. - Técnica de levantamientos, saltos y lanzamientos. - Técnica de natación. - Técnica de carrera. - Biomecánica de la posición ciclista. - Dirección de equipos de diferentes niveles. - Justificación del modelo ECOS para cuantificación de la carga. El elenco de autores que participan en este manual, es realmente espectacular: Claudia Cardona, Roberto Cejuela, Jonathan Esteve, Arturo Casado, Almudena Fernández Vaquero, Diego Moreno Pérez, Eneko Larumbe Zabala, Alberto Alcocer Gamboa, Daniel A. Boullosa Álvarez, Enrique Planelles Marcos, Yago Alcalde Gordillo, Iker Muñoz Pérez, José López Chicharro, Pedro Reinaldo García, Manuel Antonio Cervera Cetina, Rodrigo Osorio Ramírez, Sergio Gómez Suárez y José Enrique Quiroga Díaz.

The core of John Forester's concept of Effective Cycling is that bicyclists fare best when they act, and are treated in return, as drivers of vehicles, with the same rights and responsibilities that motorists have. In this new edition of his classic introductory work, Forester reasserts this idea in terms of practice and education as well as theory while also addressing--among much else--the two major forces that have shaped bicycling since the early 1980s: the proliferation of high-quality equipment and the seriously insufficient progress on the social, political, and psychological fronts. The book is filled with details, strategies, and tips that will be useful both to occasional cyclists and to those who enjoy cycling as a way of life--all drawn from the author's many years of experience as a cyclist, a Cycling Transportation Engineer, and the founder of the Effective Cycling Program.
