Experience An Exciting New York City Bike Ride, From The Comfort Of Your Couch
Dutch start-up Cyclodeo has made it possible to experience a bike ride through New York City, regardless of whether you are in the city itself, or not.
The company brings together the love of cycling and video making, thereby creating a digital resource that both travelers and cycling-fanatics alike, can share and benefit from.
They achieve this by uploading videos of bike rides and have them cleverly synchronized with GPS data for about 93 miles (150 kilometers).
Cyclodeo's videos are also an excellent source of information for serious cyclists planning routes for their next cycling expedition.
Apart from New York, one can also ‘cycle along’ the streets of Copenhagen and parts of the southern Netherlands. All videos are mapped out on Google Maps, allowing you to virtually experience exactly how the surroundings of that area will look like.
Here is an example of a bike-view video, down 11th Avenue, from 50th Street, NYC:
