Ride the Tour de France in your living room
If you've ever dreamed about cycling in the Tour de France but never made it much past a round-trip ride to the beer store, exercise bike maker Pro-Form has got you covered.
The Tour de France Indoor Cycling Bike simulates the terrain of the Tour stages, including climbs, descents and even wind resistance. The $1,300 bike is integrated with Google maps, so you can simulate rides from most places in the world. Just pick your route on the map and voila.
It comes with 24 pre-mapped courses and tilts 20 degrees up or down to simulate the climbs and descents. And you never have to worry about plunging off a cliff after a skin-scraping wipeout in the Pyrenees.
Ride over the Passage du Gois or climb the hills of Mont des Alouettes in France. Now you can experience these same trails and more on this Indoor Cycle.
The bike doesn't appear to come with a supply of human growth hormone -- or a barf bag.
