Virtual bike training sharpens cycling skills while eliminating real-world cycling risks, such as vehicles, road debris, and spontaneously opening car doors. Fix up your material bike while going for an immaterial ride with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a bike tune-up and 10 virtual training sessions at Vegas Bike Store (a $229.95 value).
Vegas Bike Store supports the local cycling community with accessories and parts, bike services and repairs, and virtual training. Bike gurus tune up well-ridden two-wheelers with a 10-point checkup (a $79.95 value), cleaning and lubing chains, tightening bolts, and adjusting brakes and gears. Once the stem and headset have been checked, each penny-farthing will receive a complete wash to ensure its continued well-being.
After restoring your real bike, mount a hyperreal bike with Vegas Bike Store’s Tacx Virtual Experience riding simulator (a $15 value/session), which improves mind-body coordination while immersing cyclists in rich 3-D locales around the simulated world. The Fortius T1940 engine-braking system adjusts wheel resistance with the environment on-screen, re-creating the challenge of uphill climbs and easygoing fun of pinballing through crowded Parisian streets. Cycling with nine other pixelated riders in each noncoached and one-hour session, customers may explore well-known streets and sights or forge a new path off the rendered track in hopes of discovering a new French café or the online vacation home of your avatar.
