Indoor Cycling Options for Torontonians

Not going to bike in the slush, salt and stains of a Toronto winter?

Not going to join a gym or cyclefit type program?
Want to bike ride in your living room?
Well… seems you have a couple of options.
The first is something called the RealRyder. Why the silly name? I’m not sure. Sure, it looks like a regular exercise bike, but, it allows you to lean into “turns” or maybe just sway back and forth. Here’s what it looks like “in action”:
Alternatively, if you already have a Nintendo Wii there’s a new, massive gaming controller about to be released in 2010, the Cyberbike:

Personally, while I love cycling I’m not sure if I’m interested in cycling simulators to feed my addiction during the coldest months. But, hey, it’s good to have your options.

  1. Hi Duncan,

    I think you will be pleasantly surprised if you try the RealRyder, because it isn’t just a simulator it is also a better exercise than any other indoor cycle. Sure it feels more like a real bike, but nothing could replace the joy of riding outdoors. What RealRyder is can only be appreciated after you try one.


  2. Thanks for your comment, Sean. Do you know anywhere in Toronto that I could try out a RealRyder?
