Hotel Guests Pedal Bikes For Their Supper

Hotel Guests Pedal Bikes For Their Supper

Europe! You’re so quirky. Specifically one Crowne Plaza Hotel in Denmark, which rewards guests who peddle on electricity-generating exercise bikes for 15 minutes with food. How long would I have to ride for a minibar pass?

Once a hotel guest has produced 10 watt hours of electricity (which takes about 15 minutes), they’re rewarded with a $US36 meal voucher. Pretty good deal! It’s also not the hotel’s only green initiative – it also has solar panels affixed to the roof.

The deal begins on April 19 to continue for a full year, assuming no aspiring Lance Armstrongs show up to clean out the pantry. [BBC via PopSci]
