Beyond the Horizon
The Great Race to Finish the First Human-powered Circumnavigation of the PlanetDAISY | For use by disabled patrons only
In June, 2004, Colin Angus left Vancouver on his bicycle, and nearly two years later, he rolled back in, having completed the first human-powered circumnavigation of the globe. Angus cycled, skied, and rowed a route that took him to Alaska, across the Bering Sea and the Siberian winter, through Europe from Moscow to Portugal, then across the Atlantic to Costa Rica and home. Along the way he burned through 4,000 chocolate bars, 72 inner tubes, 250 kgs of freeze-dried foods, 31 dorado fish (caught from the sea), 2 offshore rowboats, 4 bicycles, and 80 kgs of clothing - all without polluting the planet. Some strong language. 2007.
