Dear all

"I am searching for literature relating to the interaction between cycling
and running activity and the effect of cycling on the kinetics and
kinematics of subsequent running activity. The majority of research relating
to this interaction is physiology based.

A number of studies report basic biomechanical variables such as step length
and frequency...

I am searching for more detailed information on changes in muscle function
and three dimensional kinetics and kinematics of running gait after running

Please advise of any useful references"

Thank you to all those that responded.

As I stated in the original posting, a number of published articles relate
to the cycle-run transition, but report only basic biomechanical variables
such as step length and frequency, running speed etc. The general consensus
is that very few detailed analyses of 3-d kinematics and muscle function of
running immediately after cycling activity have been published. However,
there appears to be a great deal of interest in this area of research.

Based on the responses that I received, a number of useful papers are in
press, quite a few researchers appear to be investigating this area at the
present time, and a number of studies have been conducted that were not

I won't post information on those papers studies that are in press/not yet
complete or not yet published. If anybody is interested in contacting those
who are conducting research in this area or those authors who have papers in
press, than please contact me and I will pass on a list of useful contacts
based on the responses I received.
