This paper shows design, implementation and operation of bicycle power generation. We know that the supply of fossil fuel is limited and their utilization as energy source causes environmental degradation. The use of renewable energy sources has been increased to reduce the environmental degradation. This goal will be accomplished by designing safe and sturdy human powered stationary bicycle. The power generated can be stored via batteries and used by the local population for lightening and other utilities that many take for granted on daily basis. The human population is an increasing entity and if we can use this entity as an asset we can reduce the energy gap to some extent. Using human energy as a source of power generation we can trap the mechanical energy of pedaling cycle and convert it into electrical energy.
