Video: Massachusetts gym uses spin bikes to create electricity

It was just a matter of time but this innovative new power generating business seems like a great idea. A Massachusetts gym has harnessed the power of the spin class to create electricity.
In fact a typical one hour spin class creates enough current to power two lap top computers according to this video report.
This seems like a smart way to convert calories to healthy green living.
Now if we could just harness the total power of the world's hundreds of thousand of triathletes, we could certainly make a big dent in the use of fossil fuels, and also considerably boost the sale of chamois cream.
