No need for couch potatoes to worry about exercise with the couchbike.

Okay, we know you don’t want to get off the couch and miss your favorite reality TV or other show. So to help you out, here’s the perfect lifestyle addition so you can be a healthy ‘couch potato’. This time we have the ‘couch bicycle’ that has been around for a few years, but like me, you may have missed it.

The sofa bike comes in a variety of options. All you have to do is add a couch to the frame of the bicycle. The options are endless.

So, I’m thinking you can sit on the sofa and watch TV. Then, during those endless commercials, pedal your sofa bike around the room or down the street and back and get yourself planted right back in front of the tube.

The photo accompanying the article is only one example of a couch bicycle. There are several other options to choose from with a simple internet search.
