The BayCycle Project is the first U.S. organizing body and community dedicated to bringing bikers of all levels to a new aquatic frontier in biking. Founded by Judah Schiller, the co-founder of Saatchi & Saatchi, it aims to introduce the world to water biking.

Schiller recently rode across the Hudson River on a water bike in an attempt to popularize the new sport. With a road bike attached to two yellow rafts, the sport offers a dynamic terrain for cyclists and could be a healthier way to commute to work in cities with navigable waterways.

Water Biking Introduces A New Frontier For Cyclists

It holds many recreational and competitive possibilities for cyclists. Schiller has crossed the Bay from Oakland to San Francisco and has crossed the Hudson River from Hoboken to Manhattan. He said:

Our objective is to take biking to a new, aquatic frontier for sport, recreation and transportation. BayCycle Project is about opening the oceans, bays, rivers and lakes that cover two-thirds of our planet to people who love to bike. The ride doesn’t end at the water’s edge.

BayCycle Project plans to launch across the U.S. and internationally, and will hold the first-ever televised water bike races and competitions next year. The public can nominate their city for the 2014 tour and sign up for a chance to be one of the first to ride for BayCycle Project. Check out the video below to hear from Judah Schiller and see him on a water bike:
