Having a rear-facing video camera on your bike could certainly prove handy if you needed to provide legal proof that a motorist had done you wrong. Nobody wants to mount and use a GoPro on every ride, though, which is why Australian startup Cycliq developed the Fly6 – it's a tail light with a built-in mini HD camera.

VRide Multi lets indoor cyclists go on multi-player rides, using HD video

Both of these systems let indoor cyclists "virtually" ride on animated roads or trails, along with other cyclists who join them via the internet and appear as avatars. Perhaps, however, that computer-generated scenery just isn't cutting it for you. In that case, VeloReality’s VRide Multi may be more to your liking.

ebove interactive mountain bike trainer aims to bring the trails indoors

By - January 19, 2015 3 Pictures
Now that much of the Northern Hemisphere is well within the icy clutches of winter, many mountain bikers have turned to riding indoors on rollers or trainers. While that may help them to keep fit, it's still far less fun or interesting than riding outdoors on actual trails. Norwegian startup Activetainment hopes to close that gap a little, however, with its interactive ebove B/01 bike. The trainer moves beneath the rider and becomes easier or more difficult to pedal, in response to the terrain of animated trails on an accompanying tablet. Read More
