When it comes to bike lights for commuting, there's one thing you have to remember ... they're needed more for being seen than for seeing the road. With that in mind, many head- and tail lights are designed not just to cast beams in front of and behind the bike, but to be seen from all directions. Seattle-based Orfos' Flare lights appear to do a particularly good job in that department, plus they feature a unique mounting system. Read More

Zwift combines indoor bicycle training with massive multiplayer online gaming

By - September 30, 2014
Indoor bicycle trainers may allow cyclists to keep fit and go through the physical motions of riding a bike, but let's be honest ... as compared to actually riding outdoors, they're stunningly boring. Among other things, one of the problems is the fact that riders tend to use them in isolation, with no real incentive to push themselves. Zwift, however, is designed to change that. It's a massive multiplayer online game (MMOG) platform that lets real-world cyclists ride with or race against one another in 3D computer-generated online environments. Just think of it as World of Warcraft for riders. Read More
