This past Thursday, the US Patent & Trademark Office published a patent application from Apple. For those waiting for the next big thing, this time Apple has decided to take it to the streets — on two wheels. They're working on a "smart bicycle" and we're curious to see how it all pans out. Take your best guess at the schematic above in the comments below!

Although the patent has been registered, that doesn't mean we've been able to take a look at any of the details of this new sweet ride (any guesses if it will be made in white?). The two-wheeled Apple product looks like it aims to connect the rider with health stats and ride routes. It should be able to keep riders biking together connected as well.

Some are guessing that the bike will have it's own censors that will combine forces with your iPod or iPhone making it the ultimate experience. The kind folks over at PatentlyApple have had their eye on this new release and they have several more views and takes on the device.

We're excited at the aspect of integrating what most of us already do when biking in groups, communication. Sure you can call or text, but being able to keep track of so much information about your ride should allow you to fine tune your work out and make sure your buddies (even if out of eyesight) are doing ok.
