Review of the Nature DVD: Cycle Through Nature-Virtual Cycle Experience

This is a great way to time yourself while cycling indoors for the winter. It has a specific route mapped out so you can chose the amount of time you want to ride for. It is also helpful because you can increase the intensity of the ride when the range changes.

Review of the Nature DVD: Cycle Through Nature-Virtual Cycle Experience

My compliments on your "Cycle Through Nature" DVD. I found the pace to be very accurate; it was a true bicycle pace, as opposed to the DVDs out there, purporting to be bicycle videos, but at motorcycle-speed. I also liked the length of the workouts---about half an hour per scenario. But, on the days when I felt bold, I appreciated the way the "ride" defaults on a "play again" mode, so that I can work out for an hour if I want. Very, very realistic. On the"Coastal Cycling" workout, hearing the seagulls and even an occasional buzzing insect as I rode through the beautiful landscape, I felt as if I was there. I could almost smell the sea air.

Review of the Nature DVD: Cycle Through Nature-Virtual Cycle Experience 

Great for treadmill running!
I rated this DVD high for two reasons.

First, the quality and content is excellent. I really enjoy the mountain trails the best and there is an off-road trail on this DVD. The DVD menu, play one, or all of the trails is a plus, giving the user choices and variety. This is useful for matching up length as well as challenge with visual sensory information, and in general lets me have my favorite virtual path whenever I feel like it.

Second, the pace is quicker than my actual run pace, which actually gives me the sense of moving. I find this better than my equipment’s IFIT technology because it is a constant visual, whereas the street view on satellite runs change and reload at an unnatural pace.

I have not been a consistent indoor runner because of boredom- but I am doing 8 milers at this time with the help of this virtual DVD.

Review of the Nature DVD: Cycle Through Nature-Virtual Cycle Experience 

These are really well done, professional videos. They will give you the best 'virtual-reality' bike ride or jogging experience that is available without going to an IMEX theater. I was also impressed by how long they last-a good 50% longer than some other brands. I REALLY like how they have 'nature sounds' to enhance the experience, instead of just 'generic' music. I only wish they made MORE cycle/jog speed DVD's!

Review of the Nature DVD: Cycle Through Nature-Virtual Cycle Experience 

It's like being there!,
I really appreciate the quality of work that went into this video. When I'm on my spin bike, watching the scenery roll by, I can almost smell the sea air ---or the mountain air, depending on the bike ride selected.

Everything is filmed at a realistic bicycle pace, as opposed to the motorcycle pace you see so often in "bicycling" DVDs, so that adds to the realism. My workout flies by. Before I know it, I've pedaled miles across the landscape and I'm pleasantly exhausted.

Definitely 5 Stars!

Review of the Nature DVD: Cycle Through Nature-Virtual Cycle Experience 

I bought this DVD to use while riding my exercise bike in the basement. I was pleasantly surprised with the different choices the DVD offered. The speed of the video is very close to my cycling rate and the scenery is great. I would recommend this DVD to any one who rides an exercise bike or uses a treadmill. I cant say to much about the music because I use a MP3 player while exercising, but what I have heard is pretty good. For me, this DVD was well worth buying.

Review of the Nature DVD: Cycle Through Nature-Virtual Cycle Experience 

Great indoor scenic dvd.,
Perfect for indoor cycling, treadmill. Very happy with this purchase, and now I can time myself in for just under 2 hours of exercise with beautiful scenery and sounds.

Review of the Nature DVD: Cycle Through Nature-Virtual Cycle Experience 

A definite help for exercising,
Overall satisfied with the dvd. It makes exercise much easier and time seems to go by faster. The scenes are a little darker than I would like, but I guess that may be because of the trees and shade.

Review of the Nature DVD: Cycle Through Nature-Virtual Cycle Experience 

I love it,
It provides views of riding that I like when I am able to ride outdoors. I mute the tv and play my music while I ride indoors.

Review of the Nature DVD: Cycle Through Nature-Virtual Cycle Experience 

has beautiful scenery but you need to play your own music to set a pace. We use this for our cycles.

I already own some Virtual Walks DVDs, which all show parks and cities. This is my first DVD that only shows nature and I am pleasantly surprised at how much fun the training is here. On the DVD there are six videos with training tracks through various woods. The driving routes are very varied, sometimes it just goes flat through a forest, but there are also up and down lines where one automatically starts faster pedaling or tries to brake. The background sounds fit the videos perfectly and the rich colors of the pictures have inspired me again. During exercising, I really feel as Im in nature and not sitting in my room on my exercise machine. I'll definitely buy myself more of these DVDs, because they make exercising a lot more fun.

"If This Isn't Nice Then What Is?"

I agree with all the other positive reviews here, this is an excellent use of DVD technology, maybe the best.
This is a true experience, much like actual travel.
The sense of being in leisurely motion is very comforting. This combined with natural sounds is almost hypnotic.
Video and audio quality are excellent but the sound track seems dubbed from a stationary microphone.
Foley work (sound effects) are well done.
I find the fly noises annoying as in real life.
I appreciate the automatic looping (repeat) function. Very useful.
This is wonderful for nature lovers, winter weather and the handicapped.
There is nothing more liberating than being in motion.
As the late Mr. Kurt Vonnegut said, how beautiful it is just to go out, go somewhere and do something.
Always worthwhile.

"I really like the pace of this"

I really like the pace of this, perfect for jogging on my trampoline. I also appreciate that the camera stays head on, no worries about nausea or dizziness. I would love more of these in busier scenic areas (although perhaps difficult to produce) for days when I need a bit more excitement than the sounds of nature!

"I really enjoy this DVD"

I really enjoy this DVD. The scenic views remind me of places our family have vacationed in the past. When I watch the DVD in conjunction with my workouts, it doesn't feel like a mundane workout. It feels more like an adventure through nature.

"Walk your way to fitness."

Beautiful scenery and soft music while you walk your way to fitness.

"Perfect for runners"

I write this review from the perspective of a runner. This simulates the experience of running along the road or wide trail very well. The speed feels right although it is probably faster than I really run. I've owned a bike video that was just crazy fast. The video is very stable and always looks straight ahead. Even though I look to the sides while running, I find that videos that pan back and forth or turn too quickly cause me to feel unbalanced and at risk of veering and stepping off the moving treadmill belt. Thus, a video that always looks straight ahead with gentle turns is exactly what I need to run safely. The nature sounds are good but a few of the six journeys have soundtracks that seem to repeat every few seconds (like a repeating bird call that never goes away). I just turn off the sound and listen to some music. I like that you can choose to repeat the same journey without bothering with the controller or have it go through the journeys in sequence. I also like the appearance of the occasional car, van or even some roadside cattle! My favorites are the journeys that take place on wide trails. Although a couple of the journeys end at beautiful overlooks or water bodies, I would like it better if they all did. The best thing I can say is that I find myself forgetting that this a video -- I just get in that "runner zone" and keep going.

I purchased "Cycle Through Nature".....I really like the pace of this, perfect for jogging on my trampoline. I also appreciate that the camera stays head on, no worries about nausea or dizziness.These are peaceful, scenic rides..mix and match depending on how long you would like to work out..I suggest adding a fan to your workout so you can replicate the breeze in your face as well!
