  • The goal of this work is to predict the threshold of perturbations for which the cyclist will fall and the dependency of this threshold on forward speed and bicycle-cyclist system specific characteristics.
  • For this we developed two models, a statistical model and a Newtonian mechanics model.
  • Preliminary results show that the models can predict this threshold for a wide range of bicycle-cyclist combinations.
