French startup Connected Cycle says this bicycle pedal, which tracks the location and speed of its attached bicycle, provides its own electrical power.
Connected Cycle says their bike pedal automatically records the speed, route, incline, and calories burned for every bike trip, uploading the data to a Connected Cycles web service. There’s no need to start an app or to even carry a mobile device with you, though they say they’ll have an app to help you track your rides and your bike.
Connected Cycle also targets their product to bike share programs. It seems to be this would be especially suited to dockless corporate fleet programs.
No external charging is required because this pedal charges itself as you pedal. Clever, yes?
Price, availability, distribution, supported devices are all TBD as of yet. I’ve reached out to Connected Cycles for this information. Info at their website.
