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.
