I've found a way to turn your effort into electricity, and it's really cool!
(When it's a nice day, we'll be able to take the bikes outside and ride! The bikes are electricity assisted cruisers, so they are easy to sit on and won't kill you climbing hills - a good workout for just about anyone!)
and put it on a trainer that has been modified to create electricity like this one.
Then we'll hook it up to a power pack and battery charger that we can plug things into, like lights, tv, stereo, etc.
You'll be able to see how many Watts you'll be generating, creating a real way to reduce your energy usage and impact on the environment!
The cost of this entire setup will be about $2000, which is equal to or less than a regular stationary exercise bike, and you can't take that one outside or power your tv with it!
