Submission + - Tilting bike uses Google Maps to simulate routes->

cylonlover writes: One of the differences between real cycling and indoor training is the fact that when riders are on the road, the topography of the area determines the pedaling effort required. By contrast, when on a stationary bike, riders usually just vary their output as they feel like it.
