It’s not every day you get to witness a miracle on your lunch hour. Jean lucked out, as her office building is right across the West Side Highway from Pier 66, aka, the “Manhattan Arrival” point of Judah Schiller, The First Person To Bike Across The Hudson River From Hoboken In About 15 Minutes Or So. If he has his way, there will be many more.
“Our objective is to take biking to a new, aquatic frontier for sport, recreation and transportation,” Schiller is quoted in the press kit someone thrust into Jean’s hands as she pretended to be important. “Water biking may serve as a viable form of bike commuting in cities with navigable waterways.” OK, you decide… watch video here:
As part of BayCycle Project’s initiative to bring water biking to the public, you can nominate cities for the 2014 tour and sign up for a chance to be one of the first to ride for BayCycle Project. To participate, go to www.baycycleproject.com. More pics from today’s festivities are here. Click to begin slideshow.
Thanks! And thanks for the reblog 🙂 Promise to let us know when you give baycycling a try?
You bet! Wish I’d asked, though, what one does if the NY Waterway ferry et al are bearing down on you… the waterbike doesn’t seem to have a HOLY S***T! gear the way a kayak does.
So nice to hear from you! We’ve been a bit AWOL lately but we’re definitely on the upswing 🙂
