Pedals. I'm designing (in my head-uh-oh) a space-age, recumbent,
amphibious "baiducka" or "bikedarka". A fully faired recumbent bicycle
with retractable gear, melded with a hardshell kayak. No more need for
roof racks or lifting heavy kayaks-just pedal down into the water and
off you go. Great for the lower back muscles, and your legs cant fall
asleep while peddling.
