Biking - Man, the Machine & the Spirit: Nov. 3-5, 2005

The conference will deal with issues related to biking from the invention of the bicycle by Leonardo Da Vinci up to the present era.

Lectures will cover such topics as:

- the development of the bicycle
- the physics of the bicycle
- the physiology of biking
- competitive and touring aspects of biking
- biking for groups with physical handicaps.

We will also explore the different types of biking communities.

During the conference, a number of guided biking trips – of varying difficulties – will take place in the area.
