For me, when I’m bicycling, it’s always the question how much energy I need to get my mass moving.  😀  I’m sure there’s a formula for it, only I haven’t discovered it yet. But empirically i have found out that it takes a LOT of energy to get my mass moving.  😀

Fuer mich, beim Radeln, ist es immer die Frage, wieviel Energie ich brauche, um meine Masse in Bewegung zu setzen.  😀  Ich bin sicher, auch dafuer gibt es eine Formel, ich habe sie nur noch nicht entdeckt. Aber empirisch habe ich die Loesung schon gefunden: ich brauche eine MENGE Energie, um meine Masse in Bewegung zu versetzen!   😀
