There are a few moving objects involved in the motion.
- Cyclist: Her movement is translational. She always moves forward.
- Cycle: Its movement is translational. It always moves forward.
- Parts of the bicycle: Their movement is rotational with reference to the cycle.
Special mention about the wheels. Wheels have rotational movement if they move down the hill without slipping. No point of the wheel touches same spot of the track twice.
