    Cycling on water

    http://www.human-powered-hydrofoils.com/

    Came across the above site that features human powered water crafts. While the various concepts are shown here, the hydrofoil will raise the floats above the water so there will be no drag from the floats. While the traditional cycle position is faster, it becomes unstable on cornering once it rises on the hydrofoils. The Recumbent seating will lower the center of gravity so turning while it is on the hydrofoil is more stable.

    I have been wanting one of these since the early 1990's but have never seen where to procure one.
    Here's what I know about bicycling:
    1) Go Fast
    2) Ride Hard
    3) Use your momentum

    Cool,

    I once got to ride around on a bike frame welded to a couple of pontoons with a propeller and the handlebars attached to a rudder. Hand made by someone, back in the '60s.
