Ride Bikes in Grand Theft Auto 5

Picture 1

Not only can you steal cars and take part in dirty deals, but soon you will also be able to play tennis (snore) and ride bikes (yes!) in Grand Theft Auto 5. OK, so maybe playing video games isn’t, uh, exactly getting out on your bike, but even the most diehard cyclist can appreciate the anarchy of GTA–now it’s even better because it’s got bikes. GTA5 is slated for release in September; watch the gameplay video and nerd out at http://www.rockstargames.com/.

    This was already possible ages ago in GTA San Andreas. Although I only tried the bmx and not sure if there were any other types available.

    Dmitri F, in San Andreas you could only ride one type of bicycle: The BMX.
