Explain why a cyclist bend while going along curved road?

cyclist bend

A cyclist inclines himself to the vertical while moving round a circular path to provide necessary centripetal force. On doing this, the normal reaction of the road makes an angle with the vertical and the horizontal component of the reaction provides the necessary centripetal force to move the cycle in the circular path.

i.e. Centripetal force (Fc) = Rsinθ
