On December 6, 2020, on the Virtual Tour of Kashubia, the cyclists taking part in the second edition of the Gran Fondo Gdynia VR competition will face a fierce competition. There will be 90 kilometers to ride again, starting and finishing at Kościuszko Square in Gdynia, Northern Poland.


While the coronavirus pandemic is still taking its toll on us and the weather is less and less conducive to cycling, it’s high time to vacuum the trainers and look for challenges in the virtual world again. One of them may be Gran Fondo Gdynia VR Winter Edition, a virtual competition on December 6, held on the route of the Gran Fondo Gdynia race.

– The first edition of the competition in the virtual world was very well received, so immediately after its end we announced the winter edition – admits Łukasz Maleszewski, press spokesman of Gran Fondo Gdynia. - Independent training is not enough. Athletes, including amateurs, need competition, they want to prove themselves in a direct duel with others. This is what the Gran Fondo Gdynia VR Winter Edition race makes possible – he assures.

Not only the effort and emotions during such virtual competition are real. The competitors are racing along the actual Gran Fondo Gdynia route. Its entire course was specially recorded for the race and transferred to the virtual world with attention to detail.

The winter edition of Gran Fondo Gdynia will be held on the Kinomap application.

– We’ve chosen Kinomap formany reasons: a very simple user interface. The Mobile App is in Polish, compatible with many devices on the market – says Maciej Pawłowski, New Business Development Manager at SE Group. – Kinomap is a mobile application available for both Android and iOS. When you want cycling emotions on the big screen, you can easily share the image from your phone or tablet via a web browser on a computer or on a Smart TV connected to the Internet. In addition, the function of virtual drive gear change works very well. The configurations of some bikes do not allow to climb hills in other applications or use the descents effectively. The adjustment does not change the difficulty of driving, but simulates a different gear size, of course, affecting the speed – he adds.

Kinomap allows a large group of cyclists to compete simultaneously with various types of equipment.

– At the same time, we will be able to classify all types of trainers - both interactive ones with the use of the rear wheel and the most realistic ones with a power transfer to a directly mounted cassette on the trainer – says Maciej Pawłowski. – Kinomap also gives us great flexibility in publishing new routes. We hope that our cooperation will translate even more into the development of virtual racing in Poland – he sums up.
