So, I started thinking about being able to use VR with a bicycle. Obviously, game makers will probably want to try to design a stationary bike that will work in conjunction with a VR unit. However, the way I see it, it doesn't have to be that complicated. The VR game can be setup so that you just start traveling down a road. A stand-alone stationary bike can be used in conjunction with that so that you get the motion. However, nothing seems to be immediately available for the Oculus Rift (unless it's under a weird name, making it difficult to search). More so, most of the games I've found, the manufacturers have designed their own bikes.

This is what I've found thus far:
VZFit
Zwift
BKool
Rouvvy

I don't suppose there's a chance something is out there, it's just buried.

So, I made some progress. Instead of a VR game where you move forward that works on the Oculus Rift, Virtual Desktop on Steam allows for 360 video playback. However, I have the same problem with that as I do the OMNI theater, a shift in view without a shift in perspective. 3D solves that.

So, I, literally, stumbled across these games as I was randomly typing in search terms having to do with vr and bicycling.:
VR Fitness Gym (Cycling, Marathon, Football, etc)
VR Bike Tour/Exercise in 22nd Century World
I have to wait till later to try them out. But, this is what they're called in case anyone wants to try them.
