Our Bicycle Power Challenge is a test of how many Watts you can generate through cycling. It is an educational but engaging competitive activity that is suitable for adults and children. This challenge is a great demonstration of how much energy is required to power all the appliances at home that we take for granted. We hope that this challenge will help people reconsider their
How it works
One Bicycle Generator is connected to a \analogue Power Monitor and a series of light bulbs. The analogue Power Monitor takes real-time readings of how much power the cyclist is generating which is displayed in Watts. We put the name of the person next to the appliance they’ve ‘powered’ on our popup energy banner. Participants will soon see that 500watts would barely keep a vacuum cleaner going and they will want to try and beat their score again and again!
