Vancouver to Vancouver

I've enjoyed reading the various cross country bicycle blogs such as The Ditty Bops Bike Tour and Cross Country for Cancer. They are very inspirational to read and have even inspired me to do a bicycle commute to work (I know...pales in comparison...). As heroic as these cross country riders are, they don't compare to these guys!

"It began as a dream to adventure by zero-emission means: Vancouver to Moscow by human power. The the dream then grew - how to make it home, and circle the world, without fossil fuels? It is taking over two years on bicycles, by foot, in rowboats, canoes, wooden raft and under sail, on a route across five continents and two oceans. From Africa to Siberia, South America to the Arctic, it has been an epic of frostbite, blizzards, bandits and high seas storms. Now on the home stretch, journalist-filmmaker Tim Harvey brings you along as he slogs for a cause - a greener future where all of us burn fewer fossil fuels."
