GT Bike V 0.4.0.4

Description:

GTBikeV is a mod for GTA V that turns a Smart Bike Trainer, or cycling power meter, into the game controller, making your game time actual training time.
You'll have a cycling workout immersed in the GTA V world environment.
You can use some indoor running devices too and have a jog around Los Santos.

The mod features a library that listens to the ANT+ wireless protocol signal from an ANT+ FE-C compatible trainer (Tacx, Wahoo, Elite, Bkool, Kinetic, Saris, etc...) or a Power meter, or a Smart treadmill or foot pod, reads the speed and applies it to the vehicle your character is riding during the game. It reads the incline of the terrain, the roughness (material) and the wind in the game and sends all that information to the smart trainer so it can reproduce the hardness of the terrain you are actually riding.
The mod records your training into a FIT file, accompanied with periodic screenshots, that you can later upload to Strava or your favorite training app to track your progress. The FIT file is complete with fake GPS location to make your virtual training more realistic. A new fit file is created when you start moving after activating the mod and every time you change to a new course. The files are stored in the user data directory for GTA V, usually located at "My Documents/Rockstar Games/GTA V"
The mod by default spans a road bicycle and dresses your character with biking clothes.

As using your keyboard while riding the real bike is difficult, the mod features a course reader which auto drives you around Los Santos following
different routes of various difficulty levels. If auto drive is selected but no course is loaded, the character will roam freely around the map (be warned, that could lead you to some serious uphills). Auto driving uses the best driving skill level available in the game so you are not likely to hit anything, but you still can be ran over when driving in the freeways with heavy traffic. The mod will try to recover from that without needing you to use the keyboard.
If auto drive is not enabled, the vehicle can be controlled with the usual steering keys or with a game pad controller.

Some settings can be controlled from an ini file, including the bike model spawn on start, the scale of the slopes (the game present unrealistic slopes way harder than the real life equivalents), and the real world GPS coordinates of 0,0 in Los Santos map that are used to map the location for the FIT file.

Warning: this mod requires actual PHYSICAL EXCERSISE to be meaningful.
