Virtual Cycling in Hawaii

As I rode our edited versions over and over, I never got tired of it. The only word to describe the ride is exhilarating!

Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) August 11, 2014

Global Ride Productions, bringing the outdoor ride inside through the magic of video, today announced that its seventh of 9 virtual cycling training videos is available on their website and through Amazon for $29.95.

Global Ride Productions set out to transform the Spinning® experience into a more cycling specific and realistic outdoor biking experience. This brand of virtual cycling videos targets health clubs, fitness facilities, and independent indoor cycling studios, but is loved by cyclists riding at home as well.

After completing 6 videos to make up box sets for both the Big Island (the only island actually named Hawaii) and Kauai, the third and final box set has been officially kicked off with the release of Maui Madness; Speed Thrills. Maui is possibly the most popular of all the islands in the Hawaiian chain. It may also end up being the most popular of all the virtual cycling rides as well.

Previous box sets were kept at an hour to make sure to cover more terrain and give a bigger variety to the viewer (translate: training rider). However, with the thought of the entire Hawaii series coming to a close, separation anxiety started to creep into the editing team.

“We have enjoyed making these videos almost as much as riding there. They have been a pure labor of love as we can still 'feel the ocean spray' as we go through them,” said Gene Nacey, founder of Global Ride Productions.

"Many who have been to Maui is probably familiar with the little town of Hana. Notice I said many, not everyone. This is because the road to Hana is so windy and undulating that getting car sick is the default assumption. However, we discovered a stretch of road that approaches Hana without the twists and turns. Since we filmed Hana in the traditional direction on our initial release when the company was founded in 2007, we thought it only right that we cover the remaining roads on this DVD. Outside of one section of road that is pretty 'sketchy,' the rest of the road was immaculate – like it was just paved before we arrived. We were blown away by both the views and the smoothness of the road.

"Between these amazing roads, and the fact that we are already feeling sad to see this series come to an end, we felt compelled to add more footage than originally planned for this last box set. Consequently, this first DVD has a 30 minute bonus section, bringing the entire DVD to 90 minutes.

"As I rode our edited versions over and over, I never got tired of it. The only word to describe the ride is exhilarating! That’s why I decided we had to put more footage on the DVD, since our customers won’t want it to end either,” said Gene Nacey, director and producer of the series.

The company will be showing the first public airing in an outdoor market in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with the DVD already being offered on their website and through Amazon for $29.95.
