"Cycle for your supper"!

STOP PRESS: the Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers Hotel, situated close to Copenhagen Airport, is pioneering a pedal-power electricity generation scheme that it hopes will catch on in other countries.

Basically, any hotel guest producing 10 watt hours of electricity or more for the hotel by pedalling their little hearts out on special 'bicycle-generators', will be given a locally produced complimentary meal. According to the hotel, this initiative will encourage their guests to not only get fit but also reduce their carbon footprint and save them some money - hotel guests will literally 'cycle for their supper'!!!

But will it catch on here??? It certainly ought to given that we are the 'Lead Nation in Tubbiness'!

Maybe our government's usual modus operandi of 'pater noster' tendencies will kick in, and for the good of the nation, new legislation will be enacted - just imagine, we could have the new...

=======================================

...NSW Hotel Rules, that in accordance with the new Hotel Safety and Patron Management Act 2010 (NSW) provide under:

Regulation $$$ Obesity Blockers

(1) The 'overnight guest' of a hotel must ride an 'approved hotel bicycle generator' securely fitted and fastened on the 'overnight guest’s' bottom, unless the 'overnight guest' is exempt from riding a hotel bicycle generator under another law of this jurisdiction.

Maximum penalty: 20 penalty units.

Note: "Approved hotel bicycle generator" is defined in the Dictionary.

(2) An 'accompanying guest' of the 'overnight guest' in a hotel bedroom who has been invited to stay, or is thinking of staying but not yet decided, must wear an 'approved hotel bicycle generator' securely fitted and fastened on the 'accompanying guest’s' bottom, unless the 'accompanying guest' is:

(a) an 'accompanying guest' on a lunch or dinner date only, or

(b) exempt from wearing a hotel bicycle generator under another law of this jurisdiction.

Maximum penalty: 20 penalty units.

(3) The 'overnight guest' of a hotel, riding a hotel bicycle generator must not ride with an 'accompanying guest' on the bicycle unless the 'accompanying guest' complies with subrule (2).

Maximum penalty: 20 penalty units.
