Epic Acadia


epicPLANET.tv has just released Epic Acadia its newest virtual ride training DVD.

Epic Acadia takes you on a challenging training ride starting in beautiful Bar Harbor, Maine, follows the scenic Park Loop Road in Acadia National Park. This is a full 60 minute training ride and includes a number of challenging ride segments, including a 15 minute rolling hills segment along the Acadia Park Loop Road, a 10 minute Power Paceline segment that climbs to the start of the final and most challenging segment, the 20 minute, 7% grade, Cadillac Mountain climb! This epicRIDES has it all - incredible scenery, great riders, and a demanding workout!

epicRIDES virtual ride videos are filmed on epic cycle routes in scenic locations around the world, using local cyclists as riders. epicRIDES are edited to an original music score and include an on-screen digital dashboard showing terrain profile, ride time, average grade, and suggested training zone. The video’s interface is clean, simple and elegant, so as to not detract from the beautiful scenery in the rides.

“Our idea is to deliver a virtual ride that is an enjoyable, yet challenging experience - without the information overload you find in many of the other cycle training videos,” said epicPLANET.tv Producer/Director, Allen Jones. “With our multiple camera angles and amazing, immersive cinematography we believe our DVDs provide a virtual riding experience that comes closest to capturing the essence of what brings millions to bicycling - beautiful scenery, challenging terrain, and an escape from the harried, hard charging go-go world we to often live in!”

epicRIDES virtual ride videos are for use in indoor cycle training at home, for indoor cycling classes, and for major indoor cycling events. All epicRIDES come with downloadable Training Guide with several different workouts that tie in with the video’s Digital Dashboard. These videos are shot in the wide-screen 16:9 aspect ratio which makes them perfect for wide-screen high definition TV sets.

Epic Acadia is for sale on the epicplanet.tv web site, at Amazon.com and through a number of national and local bicycle retailers for a suggested retail price of $29.95. For those that “get hooked” on the epicRIDES experience (and like to save money as well), epicPLANET.tv will be offering a subscription option that will save subscribers almost 30% off of the retail price as well as put a new epicRIDES video in their mailbox five times a year.
