So I'm looking on Amazon at the list of top selling bike movies, and eight of the 25 are from a company I've never heard of called Bike-O-Vision. Turns out that they're "virtual reality" movies that you watch when you're on your trainer or exercise bike -- scenes from great places to ride around the U.S. and around the world. And this is actual video taken from the road-- not some computer generated hocus-pocus. But is it effective? Does it make riding indoors more enjoyable? Check out our full review of the Bike-O-Vision virtual reality DVDs to find out.
