Got your helmet? check, got your cycling shoes? check, got your bike? check, got your dive gear? what!
It’s true. The London School of diving have taken a stationary bike, placed it underwater and claimed to have invented:
“World’s First Underwater Turbo-Training Bike”
In other words a bit of underwater cycling. The reason behind it is uncertain. There is definitely a
publicity element charity element to it with the £100 entry fee is being given to Sports Relief.
The whole shoving a bike underwater and then attempting to cycle isn’t a very new sport (many have probably taken the first steps to doing this inadvertently when cycling through potholes in recent days). There was even the case of the woman who tried to cycle underneath Brighton Pier. Though looking at the state of her bike I was surprised it even went anywhere on land.
