Aerodynamics Plays No Role in the Performance of Stationary Bicycles
While I'm sure you know aerodynamics does play a crucial role in outdoor cycling, aerodynamics doesn't offer any performance gains for stationary cycling indoors. With this in mind, hopefully you spotted that my previous blog post "Aerodynamic Performance of a Stationary Bicycle" was a cunning April Fools' Day ruse.
No airflow, no streamlines
Did you spot any other engineering themed April Fools' Day pranks?
Continuing the cycling theme, VeloNews ran a number of articles published on April 1 that have an unbelievable, April Fools' Day-ish flavor:
- Froome faces scrutiny over extraterrestrial DNA test results
- Enduro series champion testing aerodynamic equipment, apparel
- UCI commission to recommend Google Glass use on WorldTour
As in previous years you can find an extensive list of April Fools' Day jokes at "April Fools' Day on the Web".
