Cycle your way in Abu Dhabi

Posted on Updated on

Abu Dhabi city beautification programme is getting better and brighter each day. True, it is not fast as you wish or dream, but it is really happening. The streets are being relayed with new tiles and seating areas. Dedicated walking and cycling tracks are getting ready and added. A new addition is the parking racks for cycles on the street. The weather is favorable too. Why not cycle your way and explore the new Abu Dhabi?

Of course, be safe and stay around the dedicated tracks marked for cycling.

Thanks @TheNational for starting a campaign and trend towards healthy cycling in the city. Looking forward to the 2017 edition of @cycletoworkuae . The #cycletoworkuae2016  generated a great momentum for public to take up cycling as one option of convenient transport within the city.

There has been mixed reaction to an earlier post of mine on cycling and hence attaching a cycling route map for those interested. This route is expanding.
Always be cautious for self and those others on your path.

Solar Impulse flight was a big achievement

Posted on Updated on

The touchdown of Solar Impulse 2 was a proud moment for Abu Dhabi, the UAE and the energy industry worldwide (Solar Impulse 2 lands in Abu Dhabi, completing first zero-fuel flight around the world, July 25).

Congratulations to Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg and the entire team for the success of this amazing journey of 40,000 kilometres without fuel.

The world has changed vastly since the beginning of this journey, in terms of energy outlook and utilisation.

Even if one takes a UAE-only perspective, there has been a lot of change. We have new ministries and departments to harmonise energy production and produce better outcomes. The UAE is setting a trend.

A minute with ClicksandWrites – A pit stop moment from F1 Abu Dhabi

Posted on Updated on

 

In motorsports, a pit stop is where a racing vehicle stops in the pits during a race for refuelling, new tyres, repairs, mechanical adjustments, a driver change, as a penalty, or any combination of the above. Not all of these are allowed in all forms of racing.

The pits usually comprise a pit lane which runs parallel to the start/finish straight and is connected at each end to the main track, and a row of garages (usually one per team) outside which the work is done. Pit stop work is carried out by anywhere from five to twenty mechanics (also called a “pit crew”), depending on the series regulations, while the driver often waits in the vehicle (except where a driver change is involved or in Motorbike racing).

Where it is permitted, refuelling is often an important purpose of a pit stop. Carrying fuel slows down a vehicle and there is often a limit on the size of the fuel tank, so many races require multiple stops for fuel to complete the race distance in the minimum time. Changing tyres is also common to permit the use of softer tyres that wear faster but provide more grip, to use tyres suitable for wet conditions, or to use a range of tyres designated by the rules. Teams will aim for each of their vehicles to pit following a planned schedule, with the number of stops determined by many factors such as fuel capacity, tyre lifespan, and the trade-off between time lost in the pits versus time gained on the track due to the benefits of pit stops. Choosing the optimum pit strategy of how many stops to make and when to make them is crucial in having a successful race. It is also important for teams to take competitors’ strategies into account when planning pit stops, to avoid being held up behind a competitor where overtaking is difficult or risky. An unscheduled or extended stop, such as for a repair, can be very costly for a driver’s chance of success, because while they are stopped for service, competitors remaining on the track are gaining time on them. For this reason, the pit crew often undergo intensive training to perform operations such as tyre changes as quickly as possible leading to pit stops, for example in Formula 1, where the car is only stationary for a few seconds for a regular pit stop.

In most series the order of the order of the teams’ pit boxes is assigned by points standings, race results, or previous qualifying results before the start of the race. In NASCAR and in INDYCAR’s Indianapolis 500, typically pit assignments are made after qualifying, with the fastest qualifiers choosing their pit stall first.

A minute with ClicksandWrites is a series designed to highlight various events that I attend or location that I visit through short videos. The video also has a key safety message that is to remind each and every one that safety is a priority for all, especially road safety.

#StartEarlyDriveCarefullyReachSafely is the prime message that is the need for the hour. Beware of other drivers mistakes and drive carefully and cautiously see through to have a blessed day.
