OK, New Yorkers– think you’ve seen everything? How ’bout somebody biking on water?? On October 3 (tomorrow!), Judah Schiller, Founder of BayCycle Project, will be the first person to bike across the Hudson River, showing the world that biking across bodies of water is possible—even where there are no bridges or bike lanes! Watch the video here:
Judah has already shown this can be done with the first-ever San Francisco Bay crossing that recently took place on Friday, September 27th. Accomplishing again what was once thought impossible, Judah will set out from Hoboken, NJ, and bike across the Hudson River arriving in Manhattan (right across from Jean’s office– WOOHOO!).
BayCycle Project is the first U.S. organizing body and community for “water biking,” an innovative new sport that “combines the adventure and health benefits of bike riding with the dynamic and ever-changing terrain of water.” BayCycle Project is bringing water biking to everyone, launching to other U.S. cities, including Miami, San Diego, Los Angeles, and Portland in 2013 and internationally by 2014.
Definitely want to share this…way cool.
Be our guest, yay! And if you happen to be in Miami, San Diego, LA or Portland this year, keep your eyes peeled… water biking will arrive there soon 🙂
Reblogged this on Kayaking 101 and other Gorgeous Paddles and commented:
Just want to share this effort. Not kayaking but close enough in my opinion. If I could still bike, I would be in line.
