Thank you for the comment on the LifeFitness bikes. You will be seeing more and more highly-energy efficient equipment coming out in the next few years. But, here are two links that can explain how the bikes work better than any of our staff could:

Campus Recreation is also looking at putting in a "Green Zone" on the upper level where there will be a couple of treadmills, bikes, and elipticals. These would actually put enegry back into the grid. This system is still being investigated, but hopefully it happens.
