Wii Bicycle Pedal Accessory on the Way? Bike Your Way to Fitness

by Paul Strauss

Is the Nintendo Wii going to get a recumbent bike peripheral sometime soon? From the looks of this leaked marketing slide spotted over on NeoGAF (along with another for a rumored Wii Fit Plus) it sure looks like a possibility.

While it’s not clear if the image is from Nintendo or from a 3rd-party accessory maker, it definitely looks like something I could see hooking up to my Wii. The $89.99 controller appears to be a foot-pedal device that’s used to interact with a variety of bike-riding and fitness activities.

My best guess is that the slide was leaked from some sort of Nintendo product focus group, and might not represent a final product. Still, I really love the idea that someday I may be able to participate in the Tour de France in my living room.

It’s actually my life’s ambition to complete a triathlon without ever leaving my couch.

    You know what else you can do for that kind of money?

    Buy a bike. And ride it. Outside.

    @Maj; hear hear. Although you might need a few more bucks/quid/dinaros/whatever.
