Belgian company We-Bike has come up with a modular workstation of seats with pedals (above) – which, when cranked, can provide enough electricity to power easy-riders’ personal electronics, and, it is hoped, some physical fitness.
That’s OK as far as it goes, although the users are still sitting – and we’ve heard about those risks.
As we know, scooting is better all-around exercise than cycling. A workstation of footbikes would have to be built along the lines of a merry-go-’round with just handlebars on it, along the edge. The users would kick in the same direction, and after a while would turn around and kick in the other direction, with the other foot.
Although how they could do much snacking or office-work, having to hang on to those handlebars, I couldn’t say. Stuff’d be flying everywhere.
