3 Days of Pedaling for a Day Off Their Sentence

Many inmates exercise in prison to “stay fit”, but for a Brazilian facility, inmates are able to use exercise (in the form of pedaling a bike) to reduce their prison sentence. The mechanical work is converted to electricity that is later used for lighting street lamps for the public. For every 3 eight-hour pedaling shift, they’ll get a day off their sentence.
