For a lot of us, bikes are a way to unplug and get away from all the tech that’s taking over our lives. But you can also easily argue that it’s not the tech that’s the problem, it’s the way we (over)use it.
Good tech, used right, can make your ride safer and more enjoyable while not taking away from the whole experience of getting out there. GPS devices keep track of your ride stats and help you discover new routes that you might otherwise never have found. Lighting increases your visibility and extends your riding season right through the grey months. And fitness trackers let you see what all that extra ride time you’ve been finding is doing for your overall performance and health.
