Widerun uses virtual reality headsets to simulate bicycling anywhere within the world (and out)

Cyclists rejoice! Your calls for a better alternative to stationary bikes have been answered by the team at Widerun, a small group of cycling and virtual-reality enthusiasts based in Milan who have figured out a novel way of combining the two. You’ll never have to hibernate through the winter again!

Hop on your bike and ditch your wanderlust as you cruise down the Great Wall of China or negotiate the hills of San Francisco—from the comfort of your own living room or the darkness of your garage, wherever you want to exercise. The Widerun Trainer integrates itself with your bike and a VR headset to provide what promises to be one of the most faithful simulations on the market.
