Collective behavior and the identification of phases in bicycle pelotons( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

As an aggregate of cyclists, a peloton exhibits collective behavior similar to flocking birds or schooling fish. Positional analysis of cyclists in mass-start velodrome races allows quantitative descriptions of peloton phases based on observational data. Data from two track races are analyzed. Peloton density correlates well with cyclists' collective power output in two clear phases, one of low density, and one of high density. The low density "stretched" phase generally indicates low frequency positional-change and single-file synchronization. The high density "compact" phase may be further divided into two phases, one of which is a laterally synchronized phase, and another is a high frequency and magnitude positional-change phase. Phases may be sub-divided further into acceleration and deceleration regimes, but these are not quantified here. A basic model of peloton division and its implications for general flocking behavior are discussed
A deceleration model for bicycle peloton dynamics and group sorting( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Extending earlier computer models of bicycle peloton dynamics, we add a deceleration parameter by which deceleration magnitude varies as a function of cyclist strength. This model is validated by applying speed data from a mass-start race composed of 14 cyclists, and running simulation trials using 14 simulated cyclists that generated positional profiles which compare well with the positional profiles observed in the actual mass-start race data. Keeping constant the speed variation profile from the mass-start race as introduced into the simulation, a set of simulation experiments were run, including: varying the number of cyclists; varying the duration of a single near-threshold output event; and varying the course elevation. The results consistently show sorting of pelotons into smaller groups whose mean fitness corresponds with relative group position, i.e. fitter groups are closer to the front. Sorting of pelotons into fitness-related groups provides insight into the mechanics of similar group divisions within biological collectives in which members present heterogeneous physiological fitness capacities
