Question: What kind of energy is used on a bicycle?
Answer: When you peddle a bicycle you are converting your own biological energy in to the mechanical energy of your feet moving the peddles, gears, and wheels. What I call biological energy is received the food we eat and converted to mechanical work or mechanical energy by our muscles when we move objects against some resistance, for example the ground your wheels are pushing on when you peddle your bike.
