Excercise bike pedals built into the passenger side of a car, or hidden when not in use. Useful for long trips when you have nothing to do but snack. Of course, can be integrated into a hybrid system for better gas milage.

       I tend to operate pretend pedals when I'm a passenger (a nervous passenger) applying faux brakes is a wonderful stomach exercise.

       I find that getting out of the car and running beside it tends to be more effective.

       Wouldn't you maybe be more likely to slam into outstreched branches and wires, and even traffic signs? Oh hell, why not!
