I know exactly where I want to go, just not how I will get there

We live in a world where it is extremely easy to get lost. Our world is constantly changing and it is quite often hard to keep up.

We live in a world where it is extremely easy to get lost. Our world is constantly changing and it is quite often hard to keep up. We are constantly being told what we can and can’t do and how we should do it.

In recent years there has been a huge push on health, being healthy, eating healthy just having health thrown at us at every opportunity. It isn’t possible come out of a station in London without being asked if you would like to try a new healthy snack or vitamin water. This has filtered down into the way we spend out holidays as well. Increasingly we are seeing a greater emphasis on holidays with a health element from simple hiking holidays to health retreats.

This trend has even filtered down into our technology we use when we travel. Increasingly we are seeing gadgets that are aimed at encouraging us to exercise whilst away. I always thought that cycling abroad seemed like an attractive prospect but having tried it in Geneva I found that it was far from it. Constantly stopping to check a map or ask for directions in a mix of broken English and French is hardly relaxing and even the most accomplished cyclist would probably rather not cycle with one hand clutching a mobile phone. English company beeline has come up with a solution. Beeline is a universal attachment which cyclist can attach to the handlebars of their bike in order to tell them where to go. Powered by an app which is available for both iOS and Android it gives you as the crow flies directions allowing you to absorb the world around you instead of getting caught up in the journey. It works straight out of the box anywhere in the world and is even water and shock resistant. For the slightly keener cyclist it even includes a speedo.

This gadget should hopefully make cycling and keeping fit abroad a little easier and hopefully decrease the amount of time spent stationary rather than enjoying the scenery on two wheels.
