It was back in the day when I learned to ride a bike. It was a wicked experience. Many things went wrong. My dad was the one who taught me, and helped me when I got hurt. The first time I had even gotten on a bike, I did it totally wrong. The handlebars were backwards, and so was my cool helmet. My dad told me just to put my feet on the pedals and start peddling. He also said he would hold on the back the whole time, yet he didn’t. As soon as I started balancing myself, he let go. Boy what a mistake that was. I looked back and realized that he had let go. I was scared to death that I was going to fall. When I was scared, I mysteriously forgot how to use the brakes and crashed right into a fence. My dad kept encouraging me to get up and try again, and after about 15 minutes, I finally got up and tried to ride the bicycle. But I still failed to bike it. As a results, I falled in the drain. There was a scratch on my knee, my nose was bleeding and there was a small hurt at my elbow. The next morning I woke up bright and early, and very eager to try to ride my bike. My nose had felt better, so I wasn’t that afraid of falling anymore. This time I had knee pads, elbow pads, wrist pads, and of course my helmet. I was all set to go, when suddenly it started to drizzle. My dad told me that it was still “OK” to ride because it wasn’t raining that hard. When I began to ride again, everything seemed to be going right as I was peddling. I thought I mastered the art of riding a bike, and then all the sudden my back tire slipped out from under me as I was turning, and once again, I plunged into the ground like a torpedo breaking through the ground. He answered, “There is nothing wrong with you. You are just a late bloomer.” I figured that he was right, because he was a good traineer. At last my father was fed up and he walked away and never looked…...

Bull Riding

...Mikles 1/6/13 3rd Demiter They say bull riding is the most dangerous sport on dirt. In a lot of ways they are right a lot of people are injured and even killed. In bull riding they say its not if you get hurt its when and how bad. Bull riding has been around for a long time for a few hundred years. Bull riding is an exciting and an adrenaline pumping sport because of the history of bull riding, the way you are scored, and the safety of the rider and the bull. Bull riding has a long rich history, it can be traced back all the way to the early 1800’s. Cowboys would get together and have contests in things they normally do on a ranch like roping and trying to break horses, but you didn’t have to get on the back of a bull for no reason they just wanted to see who could do it and so began bull riding. The first formal rodeo was held in Cheyenne, Wyoming in 1872. Bull riding quickly became the most watched and anticipated event at the rodeos. Cowboys were not organized the first union was called cowboys turtle association (CTA), in 1975 it became rodeo cowboys association (RCA) it later became Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA), which is what it is known as today. Before 1992 bull riding was just one of the nine traditional events that took place on the PRCA circuit. In 1992 twenty of the top professional bull riders put up $1,000 each to launch the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) circuit. Bull ridings first widely recognized stat was Dick Griffith, he......

Recumbent Bikes

...Recumbent Bikes Problem Statement Modern bicycles require a forward posture and a lot of strain on the neck and back. Recumbent bikes, however, relieve this strain by putting the rider in an upwards position. The main issue with recumbent bike designs is that they lack comfortable in the seat position and the need for a adjustable seat padding for all heights. Also, additional frame and/or an overly long chain that reaches to the back wheel. Our team intends on fixing this concern by incorporating the drive shaft within the front wheel in a comfortable and elegant location. This problem was addressed by our client John Trotter. John is interested in using a recumbent bike to travel between home and work, but is not fond of current models. Current models require ones feet to be significantly elevated compared to the body and come with a high price due to their size and amount of material needed. John proposed that a front wheel drive be incorporated into a recumbent bike. Moving the transmission to the front wheel will result in fewer materials, lower the cost needed to produce, and allow for more comfortable designs to be created. Our end-product will be a front wheel transmission prototype created using a 3-D printer. This prototype can then be presented to various bike manufacturing companies to be received as a potential model for a full recumbent bike design. Customers for this product include anyone who enjoys riding a bike and is looking for something new on the......

Bike Accident

...How cool do we all (the young guns) think of biking The recent shooting incident by the police left the Police Authority to answer innumerable questions as to what was the need of taking a bikers life (Karan Pandey) along with a brutal injury to his mate (Punit Sharma) while they thought of enjoying with friends while riding their bikes. Do we all get the answers we want? The next question to my mind is why are police authorities concerned about people driving their bikes in midnight when there isn’t any kind of traffic on the roads and why do police let these people do what they want. The answer to this comes here: Delhi is a city with young boys in whom there’s a rush as to things they find attracting and things which they consider would provide them with a big man’s popularity. Do all Stuntmen want to become Craig Jones? Under the section 189, Motor Vehicle Act: Racing or speeding in any public place without any written consent of the state government SHALL be punishable with term of 6 months imprisonment and repeating the same offence could lead to further trouble. Basically, the roads have been full of illegality and such kind of Violations and now we all rise up to this issue. Why?? Considering the fact that such illegality won’t be tolerated its completely up to us are we ready to borne the punishment or follow the norms that society has created for us. The newly created Buddh circuit has been created for people to ride their vehicles in whichever way they want,......

...New Seamless Mobility Services Public Bicycles 4 Poliicy otes Policy notes ly NICHES is a Coordination Action funded by the European Commission under the Sixth Framework Programme for R&D, Priority 6.2 Sustainable Surface Transport What is it about? Characteristics Public Bicycles: • • are innovative schemes of rental or free bicycles in urban areas; can be used for daily mobility as one-way-use is possible and they can be seen as part of the public transport system; differ from traditional, mostly leisure-oriented bicycle rental services as they provide fast and easy access; have diversified in organisational layout, the business models and the applied technology towards “smart bikes” (rental process via smart card or mobile phone). Example: Vélo’v in Lyon How did the French City of Lyon encourage thousands of people to use the bicycle as urban transport mode within a few months? A big part of this success story is due to the introduction of the Public Bicycle scheme vélo’v. Each of the 2,000 bicycles available • • The transferability of Public Bicycle schemes to cities with appropriate framework conditions for cycling has been proven in many cases (e.g. in France, Germany, Scandinavia and Spain). at racks throughout the city centre is used on average 16 times on a typical summer day.

My First Bike

...111 3, September 2014 First Time Riding a Bike It was a hot June summer day. I could feel the warmth from the sun on my face as I stood in my room looking out the window watching all the other kids riding their bikes. I felt like I was the only Kid in the world who did not have a bike. I grew up in Brooklyn, New York, where there was not anywhere to ride a bike, so I never learned. When I was ten, we moved to Tampa Florida to an apartment complex and all the kids were riding bikes. Many kids don’t remember how they learned to ride a bike but, for me it was a day I will never forget. I ran down the stairs, passed the kitchen, jumped over Lady, who was our germen shepherd. She was so old that she never moved. Then I suddenly stopped as I approached my parents who were on the couch watching T.V. I sat down in the living room chair, for what seemed like forever before a commercial came on. Then I thought for a moment, how I could ask them for a bike, but my mind went blank. I just suddenly said in a loud quick voice,” Can I have a bike! I really want to learn how to ride one, and I’m almost eleven.” Then my dad said in a deep voice,” I’ll think about it.” I had a birthday coming up that next week and I was hoping that I would get my first bike. I mentioned it every day in hope that they would not forget. A few days later my parents and I were out for the day when we stopped at a yard sale, it was there I saw my first bike. It was a rusty bike with a big yellow banana seat,......

As same as the cars, you can find different kind of bicycles, according to your preferences. Mountain bikes, folding bikes and urban bikes are clear examples. On the other hand, cars are each time more technologically advanced, but they follow using fossil fuels. The continuing conflicts in the Middle East increasing the prices each week in many countries. You can save a lot of money in gasoline consumption if you change your car by a bicycle in short trips. The second important benefit of riding a bicycle for short distances is that you can help you to have good health. Riding a bicycle is a great cardiovascular exercise that strengthens your heart. This is an aerobic exercise which means that your heart is pumping blood through all your body. In contrast, when you are driving a car, you can be affected for different issues as stress on your mind and body, eye fatigue and night blindness, and road fatigue, for instance. Finally, the most important consequence using a bicycle is that you can help to reduce the air pollution. Replacing a car for a bike for short trips is a great way to decrease the CO2 released into the atmosphere. In addition, the bicycle does not produce any kind of sound, so that you can contribute to eliminate the noise pollution. On the contrary side, cars are a major source of pollution,......

It was founded in 1993 to product dirt bikes that could be customized for racing and off-road recreational riding using the best quality components and parts from all over the world. The company has continued to grow and now faces a new set of challenges and opportunities. You have been asked to serve as a consultant to apply your information systems knowledge to help Dirt Bikes solve some of the problems it is encountering. Dirt Bikes USA was founded in 1993 by Carl Schmidt and Steven McFadden, two young but experienced bikers with engineering backgrounds who saw that dirt bikes were becoming very popular in the United States as both sporting and racing motorcycles. They developed frames for dirt bikes that were more suited to off-road handling and started using these frames to build their own dirt bike models using motorcycle engines manufactured by other companies, such as Honda and Rotax Motors of Austria. Riding on one of their customized dirt bikes, Steven finished first in the famous Barstow to Las Vegas race. There was so much interest in Carl and Steve’s bikes that they decided to open a production facility that could manufacture large numbers of their dirt bikes for the retail market. They opened a small production facility in Carbondale which has since expanded to house 120 workers involved in production,......

Bike Lanes

...Lafayette Bike Lane Dangers and Restrictions Home to the University of Louisiana, Lafayette is one of the biggest college towns in Louisiana. Everyone knows that a majority of college students are poor. Having to pay for food, gas, bills, rent, and school all for the first time it is hard for students to keep up. Many students choose to ride their bike to school or even to run everyday errands. Lafayette has a big problem with biking accidents due to a lack of bike lanes around town. Being a college town we are very far behind on being bicycle friendly. We need to add more bicycle lanes around town, add barriers between the cars and bicycles, and spread bicycle awareness. Biking around Lafayette can unfortunately be very dangerous. As of right now there are only two main roads in Lafayette that have a bike lane. Saint Marry Street and Johnston Street and on those two roads the bike lane does not even span the whole road and instead just little parts of the road. When there are not bike lanes on roads, bikers are forced to ride in the motor vehicle lane obeying the same laws as a large car or truck. This can cause many problems to both cars and bicycle riders. Even the fanciest race bicycles cannot keep up with the 45-mile per hour speed limit on most Lafayette roads. When there are no bike lanes, bikes are expected to ride in the regular lane and obey regular traffic laws. This causes a problem due to the amount of vehicles that pile up behind the slow moving bicycle....

...public is simply not aware of this need and many people will continue to die or be seriously injured unless something is done. Bicycle helmets save lives and should be required by Arizona State law for riders of all ages. Opponents feel that bicycle helmet laws are too strict and are misdirected. Principally, they feel that helmet laws do not prevent accidents and point out the fact that "motor vehicles are involved in 90-92% of bicyclist deaths" (BHSI/Compendium 4). Creating awareness among drivers by lowering their speeds would create a safer cycling environment. Furthermore, opponents of helmet laws believe that "requiring motorists to wear helmets will save more lives" (Convissor 1) since statistics show the likelihood of fatality while riding in passenger cars is nearly double that of bicycling (Bicycle 15). They are also concerned for the overall popularity of their sport when helmet laws go into effect. After helmet laws went into effect in Australia, "surveys in Sydney found the helmet law reduced cycling by 38%" (Convissor, 1). Another issue is the argument that helmets are inconvenient and uncomfortable....

Bull Riding

...bull riding events. There are many different reasons why bull riders should be required to wear protective gear that could save their lives. Many of the riders still will not ever consider wearing any sort of protective gear a chance. There are many things to consider in when someone should be made to do something or not. It could be for money, pride or even physical well being. So when people say that you should not be required to wear protective gear when you are bull riding they are sorely mistaken. Like for instance in football players are required to wear helmets and protective padding and baseball players are required to wear helmets when they are batting. There was one study published that found bull riders were around ten times more likely to get hurt than a football or hockey players where likely to. Another concluded that head trauma accounts for about half of all serious bull riding injuries. To me though wouldn’t you say that a 2,000 pound bull stomping on your head is more dangerous than a man hitting you? Then you have the people who will argue with you saying that professional bull riders are so suppose to be made out like these tuff guys. It is beginning to change though as professional riders finally realize this is a business and what they earn and that with fewer concussions and injuries they will be able to have a long career in bull riding. In my opinion I would say that the guys who do wear the protective gear are the smart ones, because if bull riding......

...injuries that come with such a collision. We would be drawing their attention in with the example of a biker running a red light and then by showing our audience the stats, we would make them think about how truly dangerous riding a bike incorrectly and against the law can be. After that I would familiarize our audience with the most important laws of bicycle riding. This would show them how to correctly use a bike around high traffic areas, and would help them avoid an accident like what was shown by our example. Such laws could include ones like how to use the bike lane properly and the need for wearing a helmet before and after the ages of 18. How to always be cautious of your surroundings, and on the watch for cars, How to always ride in the direction of traffic, and how to always put yourself in the safest position while sharing the road with cars. Each of these laws could be explained while showing a short clip of an individual following the law and smiling while they enjoy a nice day out while riding their bike. After our point has been made and our audience has been educated on these laws and regulations, I would show a clip of some friends enjoying a bike ride safely outside and through the use of our video encourage all to enjoy safe bike riding together....
