VR experience: Ride the city streets through a cyclist’s eyes

Tuesday 21 May - Sunday 26 May, various times

VR Bike Experience

Experience what it’s like to cycle on the road in a range of different scenarios.

Take a seat on this virtual reality bike experience and see what it’s like to cycle on the road in a range of different scenarios, which one do you feel safest in? With 83% of Melburnians indicating they would be confident riding on physically separated lanes (like La Trobe or Albert Streets) versus only 22% who would be confident using conventional painted bike lanes and 73% more confident riders using separated intersections, compared to 16% if the intersections were shared (City of Melbourne), try cycling through different environments in the safety of a VR experience.

Take the future for a test run on Prototype Street, a pop-up exhibition where you can view and interact with a re-imagined street of the future, outside the MKW Hub in the heart of the Melbourne Innovation District.
