If fitness enthusiast Luke MacDonald adds pedal power generators to the twenty silent, stationary bicycles he plans to buy for classrooms in the Halifax region, he will have a truly win, win situation on his hands. According to Luke who works at Aerobics First, students pedaling bicycles help them focus on schoolwork and remain calm. Energy from active students pedaling energy generating bikes could power up the school lights, TVs and other electronic devices and keep the students who like to be active, active. “There’s too much of the teacher’s time being spent trying to settle the kids down,” Luke MacDonald said. “This was the perfect tool that no one knew really existed,” he said. “It’s a game-changer.” I believe pedal power generating bikes in schools and fitness centers are not only game changers, but world changers!
