5 MINUTE FOCUS: We talk to Eric Min, Co-Founder & CEO of Zwift, "…the greatest innovation in cycling since the bicycle". Some of the great things about cycling are the places you go and the people you go there with. Outdoor cycling is great, but sometimes weather, traffic, time constraints and distance from other cyclists can take the fun out of it. Zwift have created a new destination that places you and your bike into immersive, detailed, 3D landscapes with other cyclists from around the world. Now you can ride with anyone at any time. Packed with real-time stats, stunning lifelike graphics, and the latest in massive multiplayer online gaming, Zwift has kicked up the indoor cycling experience. http://www.zwift.com/ THE GEEK OUT: Telomeres, endurance training and the slowing down of ageing.
