I can imagine a system where some sort of freon captures the heat that your body produces. Something like a geothermal heat pump setup.

I've been doing this for years along with just about everyone I wheel with.
Works great.

I think I might try this sometime this week. It's 15 miles to get from school to work. But it's 7 miles from home to school.
So if I wrapped chicken or maybe some zucchini+squash in aluminum foil and tucked it in between my header pipes, it might work. I can put it in there in the morning, and the drive to school will heat it up. Then hopefully the 15 mile trip to work will finish the job. I am at work usually around lunch, so I may be set to go.

My dad would do it all the time back in the 70's. A can of Dinty Moore, some franks 'n beans, a hamburger wrapped in foil tucked up behind the turbo. Fifty miles later there was dinner.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

That's an old Truckers trick......pot roast on the exhaust manifolds. Works well!

I'm only breaking out the nerd math since this is a PC2 thread.

Let's see. I read somewhere that a person riding a bicycle one mile burns about 35 Calories.

A small 600 watt/Hr microwave technically uses about 175 calories (1WH = 1.163 Calories) in 15 minutes of cooking.

One gallon of gasoline contains about 31,000 Calories of stored energy. A 25 MPG vehicle would burn 4/100 of a gallon in one mile, so technically it would burn more than 1,200 Calories per mile.

So... Ride your bike 5 miles, pop something in the microwave for 15 minutes = 350 Calories used between your body and the electrical grid. As compared to driving your car 5 miles and burning 6,000 Calories.

Of course, for this thread, you mean cereal port.
