THE GOOGLE SELF DRIVING BICYCLE!

Have you ever dreamed of having a bike that drives itself? Google did it … or not!

2018 Google Amsterdam posted a video about it, you can watch it here!

In this video you can see a self-driving bicycle which enables cyclists to do other things while they ride. The bicycle can also come to you directly thanks to an app. This technology looks really amazing! It’s really a great idea, no?

Sorry to tell you that but this video was totally fake! It was a Google prank for April Fools’ Day! But the next video is not a prank, this is a true self driving bike. Imagine this concept on a regular bicycle!

2019 BMW’s Self-driving bike at CES in LAS VEGAS! Watch it here!

This video is real and this is not a prank! BMW has really developed a bike that can drive by itself! It can make several turns, accelerate, brake just like a normal bike, but without a driver! This new technology is really very impressive and should allow motorcycle drivers to have less accidents. Imagine also that you are becoming a passenger on this motorcycle and not a driver anymore. You will also be able to control your bike from a distance and ask to the motorcycle to come to pick you up. The next step of this technology would be to adapt this to bicycle!

However when I saw this I wondered if the bike was well protected against hackers. With this type of connected and autonomous vehicle hackers can steal vehicles from a distance or even worse cause intentional accidents to kill targeted people.

Do you think that one day we will have self driving bikes? Would you like to have a bike that drives itself? Leave your opinion in the comments!

Before you start, remember also that fitness biking remains an intense sporting activity and that it will be necessary to prepare your body to be able to continue the training sessions.

As you train, you will also develop your personal equipment to reach the level of expert! Do not forget that Unlimited Biking offers a membership program and road bikes rentals with equipments.

You will notice that each training session contains a color and terrain of difficulty. The green color indicates that you can cycle in a moderate way. Familiarize yourself first with this new sporting activity. The orange color means that you are passing a course and the level is hardening. You go faster and you become less and less tired during your sessions. Finally the red level indicates that you are on the last steps of this plan. And of course the last steps are always the hardest. The level becomes more difficult and you do more training sessions. You are faster and travel longer distances. Keep in mind that during the majority of the sessions you should be working at a comfortable pace, but at certain times in the plan, it will push you harder for short sessions.

The terrains are changing too. Check well that you are using the right training paths. “Flat terrain” means that you can only practice on a flat surface without too much inclination. The “Steep Terrain” tells you that you have to train on progressive incline roads. Finally when you see “Intensive” the training will be shorter but it will mix flat terrain and steep terrain. In addition, the pace should be faster with sustained acceleration phases.

  • WEEK 1: Start your first week and try your bike position but also check if your body is ok with this new sport. If you feel muscles pain, it means that you don’t have the right position or that you are going to fast. For this first week, ride at a normal speed don’t go too fast and start familiarizing with the sport.
  • WEEK 2: Take into account the problems of the first week and be sure that these little problems are regulated. Do not forget to re-check your equipment. You are now doing more bikes than the first week and you start to get into the habit of driving every week. Again with this training program do not forget to adapt your diet. EAT & DRINK more! Take energy bars and drinks with you during your sessions.
  • WEEK 3: You are now doing more bikes than the second week and you are now feeling some improvements. You have more strength and power. You can ride longer and go faster than before! Continue like that!
  • WEEK 4: During this week you will experience your first long distances! Do not get discouraged and continue your progress! If you need encouragement, do this sport with a partner, put music from a portable bluetooth speaker.

  • WEEK 5: Week 5 gets tougher and you are now at a more difficult level. Increase your speed and your warm-ups. Remember to rest during your rest days! You’ll alternate between flat terrain and steep terrain this week so make sure to hold on! Check your equipment and think about your diet. Do not be discouraged and continue like this!
  • WEEK 6: You are going for the second time to do a long distance week followed by a harder and longer steep terrain! Remember to maintain a good position during your workouts and release your muscles well after exercise. Increase the number of calories and protein you eat each day.
  • WEEK 7: This is soon the end of your training program and you are now at the highest level of difficulty! Pay close attention to your body and keep in mind that your health comes first. Do not take risks without thinking before! Check that your body can hold on and continue the final phase of this training plan! Prepare to pedal faster and more intensely with several phases of acceleration throughout your session.
  • WEEK 8: After seven weeks, hard work led to this. If you followed the training plan, you should feel fit, full of energy and ready to go. On rest days, organize your equipment. Prepare everything you want to eat and plan a route. Finally, remember to stick to what you have learned throughout the training plan and enjoy the ride! Throughout these weeks of training do not forget to record your sessions thanks to your app on your phone. Competition is the next step!

Fitness Biking: Get fit with Cycling!

Want to become more athletic and lose weight thanks to cycling? You are on the good road ! We will help you understand how the bike helps you to become fit!

If you are a beginner or professional, whatever your experience, you must follow the same rules to improve yourself physically. The outdoor biking fitness is a good way to blow off your energy and thus develop your body and make it more fit. Regular training allows your body to adapt and be in better shape. With the bike you will work every muscle in your body. To continue to progress, you must continually increase the difficulty of the exercises. You should either go further, or faster.

Start with short bike ride to improve your athletic abilities and you bike performance!

You must also know when your body can go further or not. If you are ready for more training and long ride you can go to the top speed! However, the training must always be done gradually so as not to hurt you.

It should be known also that more frequent and short workouts are more effective than long sessions. So gradually you improve your fitness and you will then be able to do more without being exhausted.

We recommend doing several daily workouts throughout the week. For example 1 training per day from 30 to 45 minutes. If you do not have one hour a day then you can reduce the training to 3 per week of about 1 hour. To avoid losing muscles and your fitness we advise you to continue driving your bike every 3 days.

Long bike sessions of 60 minutes or more:
Long sessions at a moderate pace are done to improve your physical endurance. For this kind of training session we recommend staying on easy and flat terrain. Stay focused on your bike and think well to breathe during this long continuous effort. Also remember to drink and eat to help your body throughout your workout. If you feel too weak or short of breath then you should stop exercising. Remember that fitness biking works in a progressive and long-term way. The long ride type will allow you to teach your body how to burn your calories effectively. This will help you improve your posture and your muscles.

Training on more steep terrain from 30 minutes to 1 hour:
The long gradual climbs are ideal for this type of training. After a good warm up of your body during several minutes you can begin your training. Remember that your muscles must be prepared and heated before training to avoid injury. Go faster and faster little by little. In the last 2 minutes of your training push a little more on your legs and go faster. At the end of your training, return to a moderate pace until you stop. As and when you can then multiply the number of small efforts. These sessions will help you improve your muscle strength and will prepare you for even greater efforts.

Intensive cycling training for 30 minutes:
When you increase the intensity of your efforts and for several minutes your body will develop increased resistance to regular efforts. All your muscles will then strengthen and become more resistant in the long term, you can then increase the difficulty and train longer and faster. During this type of intense physical training, your body increases the burning of calories. This causes an improvement in your cardiovascular condition. On flat, easy terrain, make short but intense intervals.

Again the fitness biking is done in an extended way and you will see real results in time. Always think about warming up, make alternations between intense physical effort and moderate for several minutes. 1 minutes to moderate and 30 seconds of intense effort to bike. Several sessions like this will significantly increase your endurance and physical strength. You will start to burn more and more calories and your body will change with time and multiple bike sessions.
