The question isn't whether it will damage your laptop, (can easily be handled by proper voltage regulator use), it's whether the generator will provide sufficient power to power the laptop. I doubt you'll get enough current from a bike generator without causing so much drag in the drive that it makes it difficult to peddle.

Charge the battery, with an appropriate charging-circuit.
Don't try to go directly into the laptop.
