Motorcycling With Strong Wind

As I wrote this, my wife and I left for one of our favorite walks to Black Canyon National Park together. The steep climb of 10 km to the entrance starts east of the city. To get there you need 7 miles in the legendary headwind of the Cerro Summit I described earlier. On this day the wind bent down trees while we were connected to the gradual climb to the detour. When the wind falls, reduce your effort slightly until the next explosion forces you to push hard again. Rough driving, sporadic pedaling, sitting abruptly or not pointing to road hazards are examples of unpredictable driving. When it is windy, these problems are increased because cyclists have to think not only of the actions of others, but also of the direction of the wind. And when the wind is really strong, the bike becomes more difficult to control, increasing the danger indoors. The tilting system adjusts the angle of the blades of the wind turbine relative to the wind and controls the speed of the rotor. Now that you have "calibrated" your subjective feelings of effort, as well as your heart rate and potency, you are going back at the same speed to work in your aerodynamic position. Try different postures hundreds of feet at once: head up, head slightly lower, shoulders wrinkled compared to squares, curved or straight elbows. Check your cycling computer and try to exceed your highest top speed. Vary the equipment to see which cadence it moves faster and learn how cycling is affected. Remember that because it goes faster, traffic risks affect you much faster. By adjusting the angle of the blades of a turbine, the tilting system controls how much energy the blades can extract. The tilting system can also "kill" the blades, adjusting their angle so that they do not produce force that rotates the rotor. Spring-loaded blades slow down the turbine engine to prevent machine damage when wind speeds are too high for safe operation. Most turbines have three blades that are mainly made of fiberglass. Turbine blades vary in size, but a typical modern terrestrial wind turbine has blades over 170 feet . The largest turbine is GE's Haliade-X offshore wind turbine, with 351 meter long blades, about the same length as a football field. During the conditioning phase you need to control the intensity of the activity. Intensity is…
