    Please see the attached file.

    Perimeter of wheel = 2*pi*r = 2*3.14*.26 = 1.63 (m)
    For every sec, the boy can move 1.63*.373 = 0.61 (m)
    So the boy's velocity ...

    Solution Summary

    A boy is riding a bicycle is discussed. Radius of the wheel is .26m and a constant angular velocity of the wheel is .373 rev/sec.
