Why do bicycle begin to slow down when we stop pedaling?

Asked by bansalshally55 | 15th Aug, 2020, 05:02: PM

Expert Answer:

When the rider stops pedalling the bicycle, the force of friction between the tyres of bicycle and the road acting in the direction opposite to the direction of motion of the bicycle, opposes the motion of the bicycle and this force is now unbalanced, thus slowing down the bicycle.
