1. A system for measuring a power absorbed by a user on a moving vehicle over a surface and over a predetermined time interval, the system comprising:

  • a sensor for detecting vibration of the moving vehicle and for generating signals indicative of the vibration, the vibration being substantially perpendicular to the surface;

    a microprocessor for processing the signals to determine the absorbed power over the predetermined time interval, the predetermined time interval being greater than about 500 milliseconds and less than about eight hours; and

    means for informing the user of the absorbed power.
