On the Skill of Balancing While Riding a Bicycle

Standard deviation of the lateral position of the center of pressure (yCOP) versus speed.

The standard deviation of the lateral position of the center of pressure decreases significantly with increasing speed (F = 25.294, p < 0.001). Although it may appear that cyclists exhibit less variation in the center of pressure position than non-cyclists, there was not a significant difference between the two groups (F = 3.695, p = 0.059). All subject data are shown; connected points indicate data from the same subject.
