It's basically pokemon go but for bikes. Basically it's VR road riding that pulls in telemetry from your actual bike and models it in the game. A friend of mine uses it to "ride" with his buddies when the weather is such that it would ruin his princess of a racing bike.

Thanks. I checked it and would nee a few mods on my roller. So…I pass.

C'mon Brad, Thornhill should still be good today. Peter, Brian and I are going to get one more in a little later. First tracks I hope.

No riding for me, minus temps and snow means that I rather sit on my old Koga road bike in front of the tv watching bike movies to keep the fire alive.

What about those of us who live in nicer areas? Done any riding lately? Pics?

Ride 4 in 3 days in snow.

Ordered a pair of proper Wintershoes for riding to battle cold feet but had to return due to size. Next winter maybe.

Over here the snow is gone and I went for a 70 km ride on old railroad tracks turned into biking paths yesterday. So nice. At times it felt like a really early spring.

Tonight the only way to ride is if one had stud….freezing rain turned it all into a luge track.

Had to help at my son's kindergarden, took the bike instead of the car and went for a nice and easy 40 km cruise in search of a nice café but did not find one I liked.

Am so happy about my winter shoes and nice gloves that I went for another ride on my commuter. Checked an area I always wanted to ride through but never did. Today was the time. 68 km through rolling hills and small, pittoresque villages in -2 C.

This makes it 178 km this week alone. Soo stoked.

cough

Haven't ridden in 2 weeks. Can feel the tension building...

Think I'll try and source a bike and do my own little 2-wheeled gymkhana in the cow-infested mouse maze.
