For a better understanding of what is and is not practical in pedal powered applications look at the series of articles in Low tech magazine.

https://www.lowtechmagazine.com/2011/05/pedal-powered-farms-and-factories.html

There are more articles on the subject aside from the one in the link.

Another informative article is the coverage on gossamer condor, the human powered flight across the english channel. Even a superbly fit and accomplished athelete had troubles sustaining such mucle effort for prolonged periods.
