The web is buzzing about "Happy Ride," a vibrating bicycle seat cover designed to get you excited about exercise.

Here's a gadget that may inspire you to spend a little more time on your bike.

SexShop365, an online adult toy retailer based in the UK, has launched a special kind of bicycle seat cover, aptly named the "Happy Ride." The fitted black nylon cover includes a battery-powered vibrator to make any joy ride more pleasurable. It also has controls so you can adjust the intensity of the vibrations.

Both men and women cyclists can use the device, according to its description.

Users can thank "Fifty Shades of Grey" for the newfound excitement for exercise the gadget may stir up. According to Cosmopolitan UK, the "Happy Ride" is in demand because of the hubbub surrounding E.L. James' steamy book and the forthcoming film adaptation.

"Thanks to the UK's cycling boom and the building obsession around next year's 'Fifty Shades of Grey' movie, both adult toys and cycling are firmly on the public's radar," Claire Bowden, head buyer at SexShop365, told Cosmo. "It was only a matter of time that the two combined to make your daily cycle pleasurable."

The gizmo, which is said to be on the quieter side, is sold online for about $43. Also, in case you were wondering, shipping is free in the UK and batteries are included — just be careful not to use it when riding on a busy road.

I bet a buzzing noise comes from that thing.   Can you imagine all your neighbors thinking "there goes Jenny getting off on her bike again" as you go cycling by?

All I keep thinking is that is not a seat you go mountain biking with
