Apple's newly published patent application reveals plans for a bicycle computersystem similar to Nike+, which uses your iPhone or iPod as the interface. The system would include GPS routing, weather recording, and communication between a group of bike riders.
Welcome and congratulations! Whether you are embarking on a quest to more fully commune with the paved world around you, step up your commitment to exercise, circumvent another DUI conviction, or overcome a recent vehicle repossession, you have joined the rewarding world of Cleveland bicycling.
