## How much electricity can a reasonably fit person generate in an hour with a bike generator?

Doing the math: an hour on the bike generates around **0.11 kWh** (more or less, depending on how fast you cycle, but probably not much more), and the average North American house uses 30 kWh per day.

## How efficient is a human on a bike?

Operating at peak efficiency, the human body’s efficiency at converting energy from food to work through pedaling is quite similar to that of an automobile: Wilson [1] puts human efficiency at between 20 and 30 percent, while Pietro [2] finds it varies **between 22 and 26 percent**.

## Can an exercise bike generate electricity?

**The Energym RE:GEN** is the world’s first smart fitness bike that captures and converts your workout into clean, useable, electrical energy that you can use. This electrical power is stored inside a portable battery, the Ohm.

## How much electricity does a bicycle dynamo produce?

Related to that, a typical bicycle dynamo generates **6V and 3W of alternating current**. Sure wouldn’t power a 100W lightbulb, but it still can charge phones and power some decent LED flashlights, although not both at the same time.

## How much electricity can a human generate on a bike?

Pedaling a bike at a reasonable pace generates **about 100 watts of** power. That’s the same energy-per-time used by a 100-watt lightbulb. So if you pedaled eight hours every day for 30 days (no weekends off), then doing the math, you’d generate 24 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy.

## How much electricity can a cyclist generate?

Available power

During a bicycle race, an elite cyclist can produce close to 400 watts of mechanical power over an hour and in short bursts over double that—**1000 to 1100 watts**; modern racing bicycles have greater than 95% mechanical efficiency.

## What is the most efficient form of transportation?

Enter **the bicycle**. It is the most efficient form of transportation on the planet. You can move five times faster than walking and go three times as far on the same amount of caloric energy.
