Despite it’s addictive, greasy deliciousness, there’s always a fair share of guilt and dread associate with chowing down on a calorie-ladened McDonald’s meal.
But apparently there need not be with news that McDonald’s outlets in China are now offering in-store exercise bikes that allow customers to scoff a Big Mac without having to worry about the massive influx of calories.
The bikes are currently being trialled in two of the country’s McDonald’s outlets and, apparently, it’s not all about health and fitness.
In a statement, the company said: “The Green Charging Bike is an in-restaurant experience, currently being tested at two locations in China, that is designed to inspire more green behaviours as customers enjoy their McDonald’s favourites.
“The bike generates electricity to power everyday devices like mobile phones and is a part of McDonald’s China’s ‘Upcycle for Good’ project.
“[It is] an initiative focused on creating products with plastic parts from recycled materials.”
Not that everyone was a fan of the innovative fitness idea.
Taking to Twitter, one person noted: “LOL! You need to be on that bike seven to nine hours to burn half of that meal.”
Another added: “Feeling less McGuilty.”
While another compared the idea to tech dystopian TV show Black Mirror. “Thanks, Black Mirror,” they wrote.
