Ha! Ha! I definitely get lost! I won't play the extended version of the bicycle game unless my husband is here to get me unlost. I only do the beginner if I am home alone. emoticon

I've only played it once so I can't remember, but isn't there a map you can use on this game? That may help.

Just think how many calories you're burning while you're lost...but I DO agree, it would be nice to be able to leave a trail of crumbs or mark where we've been somehow! emoticon

Oh I haven't done cycling in awhile for that reason. In the Expert level it just takes so long to find all the flags, and most of the time, I just don't have the attention span to find them all.

But I do like doing the shorter times :)

So last night I did the expert level...it took me 52 minutes to find all the flags...I thought my legs were gonna fall off! hahaha. But I was very satisfied when I finally was done.

I did the beginner level in about 6 minutes or so...I think. And then the second level took me 25 minutes. The next level took me 22 minutes. Now I have the last one and I haven't attempted it yet.

But I love island cycling because by the time I'm done the sweat is just rolling off me and I really feel like I've done something productive for a work out. Oh, and as a side note one thing I like about wii fit plus is that you can input how many calories you want to burn each day which is great because it gives me something to work towards.

I've gotten lost many times...eventually find my way MOST of the time...problem is, I don't remember what I did to succeed when I try again the next time. But, I LOVE my Wii...never was particularly crazy about exercise before.

We need a Wii Emoticon of some sort! emoticon

BTW, I haven't seen anything about a shiny new bike. I have unlocked all the levels. What am I missing?

Once you get the free cycle unlocked you should work on getting your shiny new bike - because it actually handles/rides better than the one you start out with.
In free cycle you will notice as you ride around the area that you enter becomes brighter on the map. Once you have "uncovered" the entire map you will get a new bike. Each time it will start with where you left off. You also need to ride into the water just slightly - and watch for little corners that you need to ride into to uncover that part of the map.
On the beach you probably need to take the ramp that jumps you up onto the big sand dune. You don't need to take the jump onto the roof tops - I know I didn't learn about that until much later. (Still can't ride more than a few yards without falling off)
After getting your new bike you can work on popping balloons. Either keep track of where they are while you are earning your bike, or do an internet search to get a map.
Have fun!

I am so glad to read that I was not the only one. It took me 36 minutes today and went 8.889 miles but I got there. I believe I went off every cliff and also wound up in the water a few times.

How do you all track this on your fitness tool?

I've been frustrated by the flag in the cave too! I'm more frustrated by the rating "shortcut amateur." What do I have to improve my rating? I don't want to just race around and get flags - the point is EXERCISE, isn't it? I'm just sayin'...

I tried the expert level a second time last night and got lost as usual. I'll need a lot more time than I have now. After all the packing and moving is over and I'm settled in my new digs, I can get going on it.

But it's fun being lost and riding over cliffs! LOL! At least I'm getting to see more of the island. Does the map help?

I DID IT! I finished the expert level Monday. Whew It took me 53 min (11.74 miles). Since this was my 3rd time doing this I went for all the flags i knew 1st then I discovered another cave that I had not seen which led me to the long wooden rope-like bridge and I found another flag. It was one I could see on the map but never could figure how to get up there. I got so excited I went flying down hills...falling off cliffs a couple of times.

I put about 5000 steps on my pedometer just from the cycling which helped me get my daily goal of 12000.
Finally I have unlocked the free cycle.


I will try it this weekend. I believe I read something about balloons that you can find that don't show up on the map.

I love the island cycling. I have made it every time but it's embarrassing how long it took. Just look at it that it adds to the step count for the day. and my legs do feel it the next day...

BigRed, I also unlocked the expert level and spent almost an hour before I had to stop. It was a lot of fun, but I kept getting stuck in this tunnel in the mountains. I could either go back or forward and I never could find my way back without going off a cliff either way.

I'm looking forward to trying again. It's nice to explore a new part of the island. But I sure wish there were some warning about those cliffs. It's hard to tell from the map. But I LOVE it!

I have unlocked the expert level. I was on it for 51 min and I finally gave up. I found 17/ out of 20. The expert is definetly the hardest. There are many hills, cliffs, and even sand. The advanced level took me 25 min the 1st time and 17 the 2nd time. I didn't think to google either. I am determined to finish the expert level...one day.

Wow, I've never run out of time, but at first it took me a while to find that flag in the tunnel. Now I know where it is and all you have to do is follow the path, so it's no problem.

It would take forever to find them if not for the map.

Oh, now see, I didn't think about Googling how to find the flag! If I can't get to it this next time, I think I will have to try that!

Oh, and Gayle...thanks for pointing out my page is not working. I left out part of the address! Should work now.

Too funny, my husband bought me a Wii for Christmas, and he's gotten totally addicted to Island Cycling, he also got fooled by that flag (and the one near the entrance to the tunnel), I had to google how to find the darn thing for him! He ended up cycling for over half an hour, his legs were SORE the next day. I like to do the beginner map, haven't been able to get under 0.8 miles.

yup its a real workout, but I know you can push (one) on it I think that is right, and it shows a bigger island more of a map, but I still seem to take the long way around.

There is one flag that is through a tunnel...that is not easy to find...

also, Danielle..tried to get to your Tupperware page and it gave me an error. My mom REALLY needs a new pickle keeper top. She has one that all of the sides on the lids have broken off.

I've gotten lost, but never to that degree!

It does annoy me that it says "you won't be judged on time, feel free to explore!" and then if you go too long without hitting a flag it says "Do you want to save your progress and exit?" No, darn it, I'm EXPLORING LIKE YOU SAID I COULD!

Hi gang,

I got my new Fit Plus for Christmas and I unlocked the cycling on the Island Advanced last night. There was 1 flag left to get and I cycled around and around and around the island...to find that last flag...FINALLY found it...started cycling back to the start point and TIME RAN OUT!!!! boo hoo.

I didn't stick around to find out much about my ride...except I got a LOT of piggy points!

Just wanted to know if anyone else has gotten Lost on the Island. emoticon
