Project Aura

I've started getting loads fitter over the past year because of the hardcore cardio training involved in doing P90X. After seeing a friend posting his bike rides on Facebook with some random training app, I decided that I'd start incorporating some cycling in my daily routine. We have an exercise bike in the gym now after buying it off of my grandparents. I did 2km on it and felt pretty tired (I'd just woken up and not had breakfast!), so I'm going to train up and do some 10-20km rides this summer on my dad's racing bike.

I found out about Project Aura, and I now I really want it for the bike as riding in the evening will be much better because of reduced road traffic.



Obviously, I'll need to add front and back lights too. The cool thing is that it can change from red to purple to white depending on how fast the wheels are going.

Need/Want!

DRJT said...

Oh wow those lights look cool haha

I admit I don't do as much cycling as I should, especially because I live near an area full of fields, and a giant forest.

That is really cool! I love biking, it's much more enjoyable to me than running.

20km rides, make sure you have breakfast before going for it

I would be slamming on the breaks just to see what kind of color changes I could get with the color changing lights. That's just me though.

You got some sweet lights. I'm wondering about training for long bioke rides...what you gonna do? Gotta get them calves up but gotta get the stamina going too. Walking and rambling onthe horizon I think..

I don't know, they have some of the same tackiness of the ground-effect kits the kids in high-school used to put on their little Chevy cavaliers. Still, I'm all for bikes as primary transportation, so more power to you.

Nice.... This is a really neat idea.

I figure since I'll be biking often in Japan, I could use an idea like this...

cycling is so much fun and such a great way to unclutter the mind. There is nothing more relaxing than riding at night

ironchefman said...

Pretty cool stuff, reminds me of http://www.ladyada.net/make/spokepov/ . I wanted to trick out my commuter bike, but I've since moved to the suburbs where bike commuting isn't really an option anymore :(
Bike riding is fun though - Nothing beats an early morning ride, the rest of the day seems so easy in comparison!

Biking is a cool hobby, and that bike was really interesting. The music in the video stressed me out though.

Trolske said...

Wow, looks amazing. I wonder if it's really that safe.

Quetopia said...

Not only will those keep you safe, they will entertain people on physcadelic drugs at the same time.

I love cycling, with some serious training you should be able to do 50 km in a couple of months.
