Playing video games and riding bikes are not mutually exclusive. I've been doing both for 40 years (though never simultaneously, yet)

Playing video games while biking was common during the Pokemon Go craze.

I mean, my neighborhood is full of kids on bikes. Hell I was out with my Origami and a couple biked up along side me with questions. They probably would have stuck with me but they seemed to have a limit to how far they were willing to go down the street.

My wife still hits stops whenever we go out biking. Hell, sometimes that's the motivation.
