Now, would you put miles on your trainer if it was the only way to fire up the TV? The video game console? Charge your iPod or computer? Those last two would get my workouts done no matter how tired I was -- probably. AND... would there be an obesity problem in the U.S. if you had to pedal to watch American Idol?
David Butcher: Pedal Powered Generator - DIY Plans: "'Power From The People!'
Every morning, I pedal to generate electricity. The Pedal Generator I ride charges batteries, that run an inverter, that produces 110v AC, that powers LED lights, the monitor on my computer, and many other small battery-powered things. It is the most inspiring workout you can imagine."
