The paper describes a two-dimensional mathematical model for the motion of a bicycle-rider system with wheel suspensions. It focusses on the prediction of vibrational stress on the rider due to uneven track. The model was evaluated by comparing its predictions with measuring data concerning weighted accelerations on the human body, depending on various bicycle designs and road surfaces. For the intended purpose the predictions for vibrational stress and vibrational behaviour are sufficiently precise, and the model turns out to be adequate for designing and developing bicycle suspensions.
