One of the key spiritual homes of American mountain biking has never seen anything like it: a Specialized MTB flying over Mt Tamalpais, Marin County’s biggest peak.
It’s piloted by Mike Pegg but he hasn’t left the ground. He’s seen in the YouTube video above flying with his bike, hooked up to the Google Earth flight simulator.
Pegg uses a SunSPOT 3D sensor device to enable his high-rise handlebars to serve as a flight control joystick, with banking controls.
No pedalling, no flying.
