Bike Washing Machine : Wash Your Clothes While Riding The Stationary Bike

Bike Washing Machine, from the name of this project you would already know what it is. This project combines 2 activities into one. Riding a bike is a popular exercise, washing laundry is something that you might do on daily basis or at least once a weak (unless you keep buying new clothes and underwear), so why not combine them into a single useful equipment/appliance?

Bike Washing Machine combines a stationary bicycle and washing machine, you can exercise while at the same time simultaneously washing your clothes. When you ride this bike, the pedaling motion causes the drum of the washing machine to rotate, at the same time, the superfluous electricity is generated which can be used to power the display screen or stored for future use.

  1. Great concept. Perfect for apartment dwellers who aren’t allowed machines…exercise, do laundry & watch your favorite shows simultaneously! But…how does loading and draining of water work? Where does the detergent go? Will these be built to last? (No one wants a product with frequent maintenance issues). What will maintenance entail to keep things running smoothly? Is it possible to design a unit with higher load capacity? What are the potential hinderances? How far is this from concept to product and what will the price point be?

  2. Well I admit this new bike washing machine is very unique design machine I’ve ever seen! I truly like the concept. How much effort need to put to wash clothes in such machine? Any ideas!

  3. I see several problems with the concept, some of them have already been put here.
    – water (loading, draining)
    – washing in washing machine requires specific drum rotation (speed, change of rotation direction, …) Did you think about it?
    – working capacity (i.e. how much clothes you can wash at once) vs. bike size
    Yes, the concept is interesting and it could really help lazy people like me to exercise more, so I want to stay informed 🙂

    • Le principe est déjà largement testé (et approuvé) par les amateurs d’autonomie énergétique.

      Pour l’instant, on fait cela avec un vélo et une machine de récupération.

      Lavage et rinçage demandent un pédalage lent. On peut se défouler sur l’essorage, par contre.

      De nombreux tuto sont disponibles.

    • AND I'm certain, once this concept is approved for production, this will be addressed! It must! AND what a great idea…

    • After reading the info, it is still only a concept!
      All the kinks will be worked out, I'm sure, as soon as it is approved!

  4. Someone should kick start this idea? I feel like it could really take off. I was even thinking about starting a petition to see how many signatures it would get so the makers know how much interest and where. I could do all my laundry in this.

    • Hi, they have also made a cross trainer to go with it that powers a dryer for your clothes. It is also just a concept at this stage.

  5. With this being a concept and brain storm in 2016, there was a University as well in 2016 working on the construction of a proto type, I was wondering if it ever made it to the consumer level yet?

  6. I am the Public Health Cabinet Member of a Local Authority in the Uk where obesity rates are high. I am also pushing green initiatives. When is this likely to be available please and would you consider us a test partner?

    Best wishes YBrett London Borough of Enfield
