Some people go to country hotels to get away from it all, while others like to use the settings for walking and cycling, well a visit to the 17th Century Cottage Lodge hotel in Brockenhurst, will get all the cycling they need if they want to watch the TV. Because the owners have installed a bike that is connected to a charging device and battery pack, which powers the TV! What a great way to work off those calories!
According to Christina Simons, the owner of the hotel, she said;
“The electricity is stored in a battery and then used to power the TV. This overcomes spikes of power as you speed up or slow down,”
“I also wanted to show that being green can also be exciting and fun, and guests love cycling on the bike,”
