The Green Revolution

I own a spinning bike and use it frequently. I'm thinking I could at least cook my veggie burgers for free with this...

Your next spinning class could do more that tone your gams: A company called The Green Revolution siphons your effort on the bike and converts it into electricity that is used to power the gym itself or sent to a power grid to light up other locales. In a year, a class of 20 bikes pumps out enough energy to light up 72 homes for a month. The first systems were installed in New York City and Washington , D.C., in May, and the company plans to have 150 systems up and running nationwide within the next year.
