Working out with the Cyberbike for the Wii

Techstination feature for Thursday, August 4, 2011

Working out with the Cyberbike.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   Big Ben’s Cyberbike is now available in the U.S.    It’s a full fledged but compact exercise bicycle that plugs into the Game Cube port of the Nintendo Wii.   Cyberbike Cycle Sports, which ships with the bike has several modes, ranging  from fitness  that can really help you break a sweat as you pedal and steer along cartoon country roads to a story mode that kids will enjoy as well.   VP Olivier Veyrac…

“In the story mode you’re going to be riding through canyons, through villages, through different sceneries, and as you play through the game, you pick up garbage and you clean up the planet.

  The seat isn’t the most comfortable in the world and the adjustable resistance is limited,  but it’s a great add on for the Wii.  The price for the Cyberbike and software is about two hundred dollars.   It can also work as a controller for some other titles on the Nintendo Wii.   You can find us at  I’m Fred Fishkin.
