On yer other bike

I started playing Trials HD, the brilliantly addictive XBox Live downloadable game last night. It took me back to playing Kickstart 2 back on the Commodore 64, but then rushed me forwards in time with fantastic physics, awesome visuals and a very flowing analog feel to the controls.
If you have an Xbox 360, go and at least try the demo.

This Gamespot video shows what you have in store, but it is still full of surprises.

On yer bike

On yer bike, originally uploaded by epredator.

7 Days, 7 bike rides, target achieved. Each ride has been a little longer starting at 1 hour and up to 1 hour 20. The initial ones had my heart rate up at 155, but now its a more sensible 135-145 range. A good workout, but still enjoyable.
