Kevin Shannon, an acquaintance of mine, will soon be setting off on his world tour to combat “combat stress”. Above we see him with an interesting contraption called a Third Wheel, a trailer that I suspect will reduce the weight on two wheels and therefore the wear and tear on his bike, though balance and steering traction look tricky.
In his words:
‘Because It Is There’ is an expedition to circumnavigate the world using zero emissions. During the expedition, I will cycle approximately 36,000 miles across 5 continents and sail across 2 oceans (and perhaps canoe down a river or row across a stretch of water at some point) and arriving back on my doorstep around 3 years later. During this time I will be facing extreme sub-zero temperatures, scorching heat, thirst, hunger, and physical and mental exhaustion.
