Amazon Alexa to be put in a bike

Amazon is putting its voice assistant Alexa into a bicycle.

The Cybic Legend is a Halford's exclusive bike that's set to hit the UK later this year, and the two-wheeled vehicle is set to come complete with a built in Alexa system.

According to Gizmodo, the bike will be kitted out with a touchscreen display, GPS, Wi-Fi, and mobile data, all of which you can access using your voice with support from Amazon's Alexa.

Halford's Andy Whitehall said in a statement: "We've seen innovations in alternative commuting go from strength to strength and after electric bikes we predict that the next big trend for commuters will be smart bikes.

"The technology will help cyclists with many things including getting traffic updates, getting turn-by-turn directions, personalised light settings, playing music and much more."

The Cybic Legend is set to also feature a built-in music player, a connected app, a smart lock, and an alarm - all powered by a Vodafone SIM card that comes with three years of free 3G data.

There's also plans for an e-Cybic Legend, which will feature all the same support but will also be electronically powered.

As of the time of writing, there's no proper specifications or pricing information for the bicycle, but it's expected to arrive in the UK this summer, and more details will be unveiled during next week's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
