Paddling through your indoor cycling stand, looking at how much calories you’ve burnt in this much amount of time, or you might have a sad, unused bicycle at your home and you are unable to find time to actually get out of your bed and ride it some time. Well, virtual reality bike training is in town to save unambitious calorie burners and lazy fellas. These stands are used to provide highly sophisticated cycling simulations in order to make your training as realistic as possible.

Similar to your indoor bike stand, the front wheel of a virtual reality bike trainer is attached to a stand and the rear wheel is rotated via a motorized roller. Both the stand and the roller are attached to multiple sensors which provides resistance and are controlled by a computer. You can adjust virtual landscape according to your workout mood and the resistance and sensors work according to your landscape providing you a real time of experience of biking through mountains, or plains or wherever you want.
