Inmates in a small prison in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais are being offered the chance to reduce their jail terms in return for generating electricity by pedalling on exercise bicycles.
For every three eight-hour shift they spend on the bike, they get one day off their sentences.
It is part of a project recently initiated in Brazil which aims to tackle overcrowding in prisons and keep prisoners away from crime.
They power up car batteries which then get put into street lights in area's where night crime is high.
If they are doing 8 hours a day, most day's. With the right training, the UCI should sign a team up........lol
