Energy Generating Cycles
I joke about it all the time when I teach indoor cycling, "Imagine if all this peddaling could generate electricty?"
Riders giggle and then a lightbulb goes off and they think, "Wow, what IF all this peddaling really could generate power?"
Leave it to New York Sports Club to take the inniative and make it happen.
An entry on one of my favorite blogs "Social Workout" (http://socialworkout.com) tells all about it:
The bikes generate about 300 kw, which isn't much - but, at least it's something.
If being green is important to you or you want to help solve the energy crisis, what a cool way to REALLY make your workout count!
