How Cycling Position Affects Aerodynamics

New FYFD video! How much does a rider’s position on the bike affect the drag they experience? To find out I teamed up with folks from the University of Colorado at Boulder and at SimScale to explore this topic using high-speed video, flow visualization, and computational fluid dynamics. 

Check out the full video below, and if you need some more cycling science before the Tour de France gets rolling, you can find some of my previous cycling-related posts here. (Image and video credit: N. Sharp; CFD simulation – A. Arafat)

ETA: Please note that the video contained in this post was sponsored by SimScale.
