4. Yup, converting calories to watts on a bicycle

A 150 pound rider at 10 mph for an hour burns 408 calories. That comes out to .47 watts per second, or about 170 watts in an hour. (just like you said!)

Convert it to electric and store it, pay for the equipment, etc, etc, one would be better off dining by candlelight.
