When it comes to incentivizing individuals to make more environmentally conscious travel decisions, government subsidies have proven quite successful in the past. In a number of European countries, there are subsidies for buying new and used electric cars, installing EV charging points in your home, and even discounted bus tickets for those in low income brackets. Earlier this year in the UK, the government handed out vouchers to help people get their old bikes back on the road in a bid to encourage cycle commuting. In most of these cases, the money set aside to fund the subsidies was used… This story continues at The Next Web

Amsterdam, July 11, 2018 - In the middle of a peloton, racing cyclists experience only five to ten percent of the air resistance they face when cycling alone.A new study, published in the Journal of Wind Engineering & Industrial Aerodynamics, based on wind tunnel research on a peloton of 121 cyclists may explain why so few 'breakaways' in professional cycling races, like this year's Tour de France, are successful."It turns out that current calculation models used by some race teams to determine the best time to escape are based on the wrong assumptions," explains lead author Professor Bert Blocken at the Eindhoven University of Technology & KU Leuven."Perhaps these new results will lead to more successful escapes and partly explain why so few escapes succeed, and why the peloton often hauls in the riders that do escape," Dr. Blocken added.Professional cyclists however, suggest that in a peloton you 'sometimes hardly have to pedal', which assumes that air resistance must be much lower.The research team, led by Dr. Blocken systematically chart, for the first time, the air resistance for each rider in a cycling peloton of 121 riders.
This weekend sees the start of the 105th Tour de France, with the world’s most famous cycling race starting in Noirmoutier-en-l'Île, before commencing a three-week tour of the nation before finishing on the Champs-Elysee - hopefully with Chris Froome in the yellow jersey.But accompanying all the 176 riders in this year’s race will be sensors beneath each saddle, providing real-time data on speed and location to broadcasters, allowing fans around the world more insight into the world’s greatest race.These services come from South African firm Dimension Data, which alongside race organisers the Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO), is continuing its drive to make the Tour de France 2018 a more immersive and exciting experience for viewers using technology."The Tour de France is on a digital transformation journey like any of our clients, and so we've always used (the race) as a good platform to innovate and showcase our capabilities in a number of areas,” Scott Gibson, Dimension Data executive for digital business solutions, tells TechRadar Pro ahead of this year’s race.“The fan of today is very data-hungry - we all live in this age where we have this amazing capability to access more data and interpret more data...and technology has to play the part.”Last year’s race saw three billion data points analysed, up from 128 million in 2016, and working out at around 150 million data points for each of the 21 stages.
