Introducing the telecycle

A hotel in the village of Brockedlodge in New Forest has revealed its new echo-friendly television set which is powered by a bicycle. It is a power saving initiative set up by the bed and breakfast. So visitors at the cottage lodge are able to watch their favourite TV programme and at the same time be fit and healthy, so no more couch potato. As well as the bicycle powered TV the room also has solar panels and low energy lighting and furniture made from trees by a local tree surgeon. The hotel has won several echo-friendly awards.
