Bed And Breakfast Outdoes World’s Best Designers With Bike-Powered TV

A bed and breakfast in the UK may have inadvertently made the biggest breakthrough in fitness equipment since the Shake Weight. Keeping in line with its eco-friendly ethos, the Cottage Lodge at the New Forest National Park wanted to conserve energy in a way that made sense to the travelers who came to experience the site’s 192 km of off-road cycling. So, in one guest room, it installed a stationary bike connected to a generator wired to a TV, therefore requiring guests to pedal to keep the TV on. Never before has two mortal enemies—television and exercise—existed so symbiotically.
