Stationery Bike Tackles The Open Road With Google Maps
A new exercise bike with GPS fed by Google allows you to pedal on the 'real trail' without leaving home.
The Le Tour de France Indoor Cycle by Pro-firm has closed the gap between real cycling and indoor training by simulating real-world topography using inclines, declines and Google Maps. The Le Tour de France’s control panel displays satellite images of the chosen route and the user’s current position.
Only the Le Tour de France Indoor Cycle can give you Intelligent Wind Resistance that adjusts the resistance of your bike based on your wind profile. Pro-form’s smart technology applies the natural resistance you would get out on the road using your height and weight, so a climb in your home is the same outside. For $1299, Pro-Form’s training bike allows to burn off those extra pounds on one of it’s 24 pre-set courses or you can create your own design.
