To non New York/New Jersey Farkers: spend a week crossing the one bridge or two tunnels across the Hudson (12 million people on one side, nine million on the other) - with the soul crushing traffic or insane, what, $12 tolls, and you'll see why this man is a motherfarking hero.

/cause all our tax dollars go to red states, not our own infrastructure

Have fun out there in the shipping lane with 4' wake. The water looks calm from the shoreline but anyone who's been out there knows the Hudson is no joke.

I think paddle boats were created a long time ago and are likely much more stable a ride.

Atomic Spunk: I've always wondered why if someone wanted a water craft powered by one's legs, there weren't more options. Legs are a lot more powerful than arms, but it seems as though the only self-powered water crafts that can travel at a decent speed are powered by arms. This device is too top heavy and the body position looks like it's tough to handle in crosswinds. I'd like to see a low-profile watercraft where the rider sits in a similar position to a recumbent cyclist.


A low profile leg powered vessel where you sit down and lean back a bit.  I think they invented that already.

The journey, which was made with a pursuit boat following and family members looking on from the pier, was made to promote water cycling as "the next frontier of biking," Schiller said.

Because the next big thing will surely be so important as to have a safety boat behind you in case something bad happens.
