To Hawaii on Foot Power

Yesterday's post about the HEPAV reminded me of another human-powered vehicle that we had mentioned on the blog a couple of years ago. Adventurer Greg Kolodziejzyk had planned to pedal this vehicle (seen here in sea trials off Tofino in 2008) across the Atlantic Ocean.
That particular plan seems to have gone by the wayside, but in June of next year Greg plans to pedal a new and improved craft from Victoria to Hawaii, a distance of about 4500 km. You can follow his blog here, or his expedition web site here. He's raising money and awareness (and bikes) for Kimberlee's Bikes for Kids.
Check out the video of the new boat's first lake trial:
