Com­fort cy­cling

First News - - Crazy But True -

A MAN has man­aged to cy­cle the en­tire length of Bri­tain, with­out ac­tu­ally leaving his home!

How, you ask? Well, it’s all down to vir­tual re­al­ity. Aaron Puzey de­vel­oped a smart­phone app called Cy­cleVR, which can turn Google Street View into a vir­tual re­al­ity cy­cling route.

The 44-year-old cy­cled 1,448km (900miles) from Land’s End to John O’Groats, us­ing just the app, a vir­tual re­al­ity head­set and an ex­er­cise bike in his liv­ing room! It took him 85 hours to com­plete the jour­ney, which he started in May 2016 and fin­ished this Jan­uary.
