Velocipedes, Velocopeds, Vespokes, and Other Basic Cycling Terms

A bicycle, also known as a bicycle or cycle, is an individual-powered or pedal-controlled, single-wheeled, fixed-rate vehicle, with two wheels attached to an overhead frame, one behind another. A bicycle rider, usually called a biker, or cyclist, is generally defined as someone who cycles for exercise or for pleasure. Most bicycle riders are of the young age between fifteen and forty years old, although it is also seen that younger children or teens ride bicycles as well. A bicycle is a practicality in getting from one place to another, since it can be easily maneuvered in narrow pathways or winding roads. Moreover, it can be used for recreational purposes as well, such as for traveling to a nearby park or grocery store.


The majority of bicycles have been designed and built with a single seat and a standard frame style, with the exception of mountain bicycles which tend to be two-wheeled. Typically, most bicycles have a freewheel, which is a chain that runs between the pedals and the rear wheel, allowing the rider to coast or reverse smoothly and easily. A freewheel is usually powered by a chain saw, similar to those used on a skateboard or scooter. Although the design was originally derived from utility bicycles, when people began to recognize the value that the single-wheeled bicycle had for commuting, it was soon adopted by bikers as well. Today, a freewheel bicycle often has two wheels.

A bicycle with a fixed wheel structure, a bicycle with a freewheel and a bicycle with a coaster brake is sometimes referred to as a “velocipede.” These bicycles have been around since the mid-eighteen hundreds and were originally developed as cross-country sports bicycles. The first velocipedes were made for racing, not for commuting. Invented by businessman Maxim pocketing the money for the first prototype, these early velocipedes were designed to be very maneuverable, which allowed them to outmaneuver their competitors.

The first velocipedes were made primarily for racing, using a single wheel design and a very narrow seat which allowed for very narrow pedals. The two-wheeled versions were not developed until the nineteen hundreds, when technology started to advance the technologies used for racing began to advance as well. In the late nineteen seventies a sport was developed for people who wanted to ride a bicycle in a race but who did not have the time to build up a substantial battery. Velocipedes are a type of sport bike that use a single rear wheel for propulsion rather than two wheels, like two-wheeled racers. It was these velocipedes that were named after the French word “velocipede,” which means “one swift motion.”

Because of the popularity of these one-wheel riders, and the need for more advanced technology, manufacturers went to great lengths to make two-wheeled velocipedes. The first of these was the Gixxer, which was a souped up version of the velocipede. The next models added more technology to the already excellent mechanisms that were already available on the market, making the bicycle into something that was faster, stronger, and more maneuverable than ever. The Gixxer quickly became a favorite among cycling enthusiasts.

However, a lot of people don’t realize that a contemporary bicycle is not really a velocipede at all! A bicycle is really just a bicycle, with the ability to fold down into a smaller and more manageable size. A contemporary bicycle is an actual physical object, and it is usually constructed with some amount of motor in it. Many cyclists just refer to these bicycles as “speed bikes” or “bikes,” so they are sometimes also referred to as velocipeds.

Understanding Global Positioning Systems – The GOES Satellite

When you launch your small satellite television system, the go-to point is the local TV station. But if you live in a rural area or in a small town, you know that doesn’t cut it. You need to find out what is going on in your community and pick up the telephone. The good news is that many rural areas have access to free-to-air channels; you can tune into your local channels and enjoy your programming without incurring extra expenses.


If you’re able to view your programming through a basic SBS or UHF broadcast antenna, then congratulations! You’ve taken the first step toward programming solution for your satellite-based system. But there are times when the signals receive from these antennas are weak or have poor audio quality due to atmospheric conditions. If this is the case, then you will want to consider using the Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) as one of your tools for weather monitoring.

The ABI is an enhanced version of the already-advanced Baseline Imager (BIA), which is used in the Global Positioning System (GPS). The ABI is a device that looks like a flat screen monitor that is affixed to a rack mounted instrumented with a high-gain antenna that sends out a laser image of the Earth’s surface which is captured by the receiver at a fixed distance. A GPS based on the altitude and azimuth readings of the Earth’s equator is sent to the device which displays it on a computer screen. The data is displayed in real time via a digital voice transmission (C ATU) at the frequency of 7 feet above ground level.

As mentioned earlier, there are two types of weather monitoring equipment that you might choose from. Some of these are Operational Environmental Satellite (OES) and Historical Environmental Satellite (HEAS). These two types of weather tracking devices use completely different technologies. For instance, an OES uses the Doppler principle to the Historical Environmental Satellites use an antenna known as a reflector which picks up radio waves of certain frequencies and converts them into an electric signal which is then processed by the GPS receiver. The difference between the two devices is quite vast and although it may seem trivial to some, it actually has a profound impact on the quality of the retrieved data.

There are a lot of benefits of using these space exploration vehicles for scientific research. For instance, the GISS (Global Positioning System) and NASA’s Opportunity, Mars and Venus Program respectively launched the first global positioning system satellites which greatly helped in the understanding of our planet’s movements. Both of these pioneering missions successfully retrieved samples of Mars dirt, which is currently being studied by scientists. Another benefit of using these earth orbit satellites is the ability to perform fly-by landings of selected landing areas. During this process, ground control teams can land remotely and inspect the samples using instruments on the unmanned probe, which is then brought back to the Earth for analysis.

There are other benefits of using this type of satellites besides studying space weather around our planet. Many private and government agencies are also using these satellites to monitor their assets in the skies above. For example, the US National Weather Service and the military have been using the GOES (geostationary weather infrared) satellite to monitor the upper atmosphere of our planet as a means of tracking severe weather conditions which are known to affect infrastructure and even people living in remote areas. Furthermore, private and government agencies such as the CIA, the FBI, the CIA, the US Navy, Air Force, the Marines and the NNSA rely on the signals gathered by these orbiting weather satellites to detect illegal activities or intrusions into their territories
