New mod for GTA V will allow you to ride a real bike around Los Santos

One of the consequences of the pandemic quarantine was the increased demand for home exercise equipment - and in particular, "smart exercise bikes." The latter can be connected to platforms like Zwift and Sufferfest to make voyages on virtual tracks, spinning real pedals at home in front of the TV screen. And now fans of such leisure have the opportunity to rush with the breeze through the world of GTA V and its largest city, Los Santos.

This is made possible by the GTBikeV mod, which allows you to connect a smart exercise bike to the game. Their interfaces are combined and you can control your character in the game by simply pedaling and turning the steering wheel. In turn, if the game track goes uphill or the hero begins to shake on bumps, the exercise bike will display this in a realistic way. It turns out both travel and training at the same time.

Players have access to several routes around Los Santos, they can also choose the mode of free exploration of the virtual world. You can even complete game missions, albeit with difficulty - only single player mode is available here. In addition, for shooting, you will have to somehow pick up the controller, while controlling the bike with other parts of the body, which will require some skill. However, the huge and densely populated world of Los Santos is worth it.
