another question...

A bicyclist travels in a circle of radius 26 m at a constant speed of 7.44 m/s. The combined mass of the bicycle and rider is 95 kg.

The force of friction exerted on the bike from the road is 202 N but i need to find the total force exerted by the road on the bike. I thought it would be 202 + mg (normal force) which would be 1130. but that is not right. then i tried just normal force so i did 95 * 9.81 and i got 932. and that is wrong too!
