A cyclist has to bend slightly towards the center of the circular track in order to make a safe turn without slipping.

Let m be the mass of the cyclist along with the bicycle and v, the velocity. When the cyclist negotiates the curve, he bends inwards from the vertical, by an angle θ. Let R be the reaction of the ground on the cyclist. The reaction R may be resolved into two components:

(i) the component R sin θ, acting towards the center of the curve providing necessary centripetal force for circular motion and

(ii) the component R cos θ, balancing the weight of the cyclist along with the bicycle.

Thus for less bending of the cyclist (i.e for θ to be small), the velocity v should be smaller and radius r should be larger. let h be the elevation of the outer edge of the road above the inner

edge and l be the width of the road then,
