Terrain size: 4km²
Track length: 15km
It will take you approximately 40 minutes to explore the entire (loop) route. You will drive through the narrow city streets of the urban environment and winding rural roads, surrounded by lush forests. The street and road networks are fully connected and well equipped with high quality street fixtures, exterior decoration, street signs and buildings. The simulation features dynamic weather changes (rain, sun, snow) as well as a full day/night cycle. Along the road you will occasionally come upon different animals: cows, sheep, birds, butterflies, chickens…
Every time, before you begin exercising, a window will appear, notifying you that you are using the version meant for home use. Close it by pressing ENTER or using the mouse (click on the CLOSE button). Once you have done so, you can begin your training. As soon as you start cycling, your training time starts being recorded and at the same time, the virtual track is being simulated. Distance and current speed are displayed as you cycle. Your speed along the virtual road will also depend on the terrain. You will need to pedal faster to beat the slopes, while you may take a breather when driving down the slopes. You may end the workout by not cycling for 30s (the workout time is then reset and the simulation is ready to record a new workout). After the workout, a statistic is displayed comparing the current workout with the average result of all workouts. The combined distance and time of all training sessions are also shown. Press the ESC (Exit) key to return to the desktop and press F2 (Exit Simathlon), when a new window is displayed. At the moment, a longer cycling route is available within the map. The ability to open new routes within the map is still under development and will be available as a free add-on later on. We will also subsequently include the basic online multiplayer mode for free.
