Yeah I felt the same way at first, but then I realized it worked great when you just tap the arrow keys repeatedly. This felt like pedaling a bike to me, so I left it. Thanks for playing!
Now I like the controls, now they really do feel like pedaling ^^ My bad I didnt realize, thats how you control it. Maybe the wrong way to do it (holding arrow keys) shouldnt be possible at all then.
I think the control would feel better and more like pedalling if there were a feedback like a speed surge or something like that.
