Now that's an adventure
In June 2004, a team of three people left Vancouver on their bicycles. They returned almost two years later (720 days), after completing the first human-powered circumnavigation of the Earth. They cycled, skiied, canoed, hiked, and rowed around the world. This incredible adventure included, among other things, a completely unsupported five-month rowing across the Atlantic from Portugal to Costa Rica.
One book about the adventure, Beyond the Horizon, will be released in March 2007. It's on my list.
