Question: How many amps can a bike produce?
Answer: The equation for calculating amps is amps = watts/voltage. A fit cyclist can produce around 100-200 watts continuously and up to 400-500 watts for very brief peak periods. If your bicycle was hooked up to a 12v battery this means you would be generating 150watts/12volts = 12.5 amps continuously or 450watts/12volts = 37.5 amps for very brief peak periods. The average person who doesn’t cycle regularly would probably produce something more like 75watts/12volts = 6.25 amps.
