    Sorting the junk out of my snail mail, I see an ad for Work Out World, a chain of "health clubs"
    (gyms). What catches my eye as I crumple it up to throw it away is, among the list of equipment and
    services, "Cycling theatre".

    Has anybody used such a thing? Is it more than riding an exercise bike in front of a recording of
    the road? Is it interactive at all, does it offer any feedback?

    Go ask for a demo or get a day pass! Whether the system is any good or not can't be answered here.

    Every time the Rocky Dino Opera has been performed, I've been stuck with a load of work. Oh well.
    One of these days ...

    cheers, Tom

    Kewl! Thanks for that.

    "imagine a fleet of civic bikes, gleaming with the city's coat of arms, stacked on covered racks in
    the corner of every street, which anybody can ride anywhere free of charge, inside the city limits.
    The air is clean. The people are healthy. The time saved. The energy conserved."

    This guy was ahead of his time.

    cheers, Tom
