Hybrid2 Bike Turns Human Energy Into Bus Energy

Now here’s an idea that just makes complete and total sense to me: hybrid bicycles usable by city dwellers that store energy via regenerative braking which is then redistributed back into the city’s power grid via special bike stands to be used by a fleet of electric buses. Bikes are unlocked and tracked by commuters with an RFID card. Each cyclist then builds credits based on how much energy they produce. These credit can then be traded in for free bus rides.

How awesome is that?
