«Fast forward to the morning of September 27, 2013 when I set a new world record by becoming the first person in history to bike across the San Francisco Bay.
It was a truly epic and beautiful bike ride, one that left me deeply humbled and grateful. One week later, I did the same thing biking across the Hudson River for the first time ever from Hoboken, New Jersey to a Manhattan dock crowded with reporters (see the CBS Evening News report below!). I’ve also launched BayCycle Project, which aims to build a new aquatic frontier in biking. I’m also starting a crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter to design the water bike craft of the future—one that will enable all cyclists to easily ride their own bikes on the water for sport, recreation, health, and transportation. And on a planet that is two-thirds water with over five billion bikes in circulation around the globe, this seems to be a long time coming. It also feels like, at long last, my dream has come into focus. Not what I expected or ever envisioned, but something that is so brilliantly and perfectly suited to me—a life biking on the water and showing other people the joy of doing the same.»
