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 (track) races allows quantitative descriptions of peloton phases based on observational data. Data from two track races are analyzed. Peloton density correlates well with cyclists'(More)
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(More)
