1 HP=746 watts
So to = a humans effort you need around 360 watts available.
From a practical point of view I know that 250 watts can drive a single 115 pound driver at about 30 MPH. This can be sustained for around 2 hours over fairly flat ground from 2 x 75 Amp hr car batteries.
See www.greenpower.co.uk for some design ideas.
