Phantom Pedals: Cycling with Ghostly Grace
-By Lewis Preen
Get ready to embark on an otherworldly cycling adventure like never before! Introducing the Shadow Replay System, an immersive experience that will redefine your virtual cycling escapades.
Drawing inspiration from the top selling racing video games across the globe, Forza Motorsport, Ridge Racer, and Mario Kart etc. The Shadow Replay System is a ghost riding AI, that saves your previous rides data on a specific track or segment and replicates the result. This means that you can ride against yourself for better pace control or compete against yourself and improve your overall performance.
Whether you’re a casual cyclist or a seasoned rider, the Shadow Replay system welcomes all into the realm of spectral cycling. Embrace the fusion of technology and the supernatural and let the thrill of the virtual ride live on forever.
How it Works: All your various activities can be tracked as you cycle around the many worlds of MyWhoosh, which are then replicated the next time you ride a previously ridden route. On your ride you will be accompanied by a spectral version of yourself.
Feel the Spirit of Speed: The Shadow Replay system is engineered to synchronize with your real-world cycling movements, mimicking every pedal stroke into a burst of spectral speed in the game. Feel the wind rush through your digital hair as you accelerate, climb and race against yourself in the wonderful worlds of MyWhoosh.
Ignite You Competitive Spirit: Challenge yourself to be the best as you compete against yourself, all while pushing the limits of your cycling skills. The Shadow Replay system adds a new layer of competition to your cycling adventures, choosing to ride an entire route and beating your time, to pushing the limits of yourself in a specific segment smashing your previous attempt.
Control Your Spirit: The Shadow Replay system can also be used to maintain your pace, instead of racing against yourself, you can utilize the appearance of the Shadow as a training partner, as you compete with it maintaining your FTP and performance.
Connect with the Community: Share your experiences with fellow riders, on various social media platforms. The Shadow Replay system isn’t just a gaming accessory; it’s a portal to a vibrant cycling community that spans the virtual and real worlds. And in the future, we plan to have friends challenge system, where you can send and receive Shadow Challenges.
So, gear up fellow riders, as we embark on a journey that transcends the ordinary and propels us into the extraordinary. The Shadow Rider system awaits – are you ready to pedal into spectral realm and become the best you can be?
