FOX reports that the devices are called “Green Charging Bikes.” The cycles, which can electronically charge customers’ phones as they eat, are made of recycled plastics — part of a larger upcycling program throughout China.

In the past, users have shared what makes McDonald’s breakfast so great in Japan, why Taco Bell is “fancy” in China and how you can see the Great Pyramids of Giza from a Pizza Hut in Egypt.
As far as the McDonald’s exercise bikes went, many users called them “amazing.”
