Returning to the case of bicycling, what is it about the bicycle that makes locomotion with it so highly efficient? Tucker (1975) considered this and other forms of movement. 1) where CT = cost of transport, dimensionless Pi = input power, N·m/sec s = speed of movement, m/sec W = body weight, N The cost of transport really involves the rate of energy usage moving at an appropriate speed. Because there may be substantial differences in body weight between animals to be compared,8 the cost of transport includes the weight factor.
