EVER WANTED TO see how your cycling skills might stack up against Lance Armstrong’s? Now you can, thanks to this stationary bike that looks like a leftover prop from Blade Runner.

It’s creatively called Le Tour De France Indoor Cycling Bike. It uses data from Google Maps to simulate the actual Tour de France course or one of your own design. The thing can even replicate wind resistance and potholes.

For biking and exercise nuts, this one’s a winner.
