Bike while you learn: The real goal

  Sent to the Tennessean, Sept 17, 2013

The Tennessean has published a free commercial for a stationary bike that students are supposed to ride while doing schoolwork ("FitDesks help students exercise while they work," Sept. 13).
If school time is so limited that students have to get their exercise pumping a bike at their desks, something is seriously wrong with school.
The entrepreneurs responsible for this crackpot idea say they want to put 10,000 bikedesks in schools next year. I don't think that's their goal. At $300 per bikedesk, their goal is to gross 3 million dollars.
