UN RIDER EN TRIKE PTEROSAIL CRUZA EEUU: A Cross-Country Sailing Adventure, un viaje de mas de 3000 km en 46 días. Eso es lo que ha hecho John MacTaggart con su Pterosail Trike Systems es decir, la vela y ciclismo unido, una combinación de ciclismo, vela y energía solar en una sola en el que incluso se puede almacenar la energía generada por el viento en las pilas.

Since this is an English-language forum:
TRIKE RIDER CROSSES USA IN PTEROSAIL: A Cross-Country Adventure Sailing, a journey of over 3000 km in 46 days. That is what John MacTaggart has done with his Pterosail Trike System. The system incorporates sailing and cycling together; a combination of cycling, sailing and solar energy in one in which he can even store wind-generated energy in batteries .
Pic was taken from this (http://thegazette.com/tag/pterosail/) article. Projected finish was in August, so he either ran really late or this is a really old news tidbit.
That's quite an interesting machine and adventure but, between the sail and the electric motor, this doesn't strike me as bicycling, (or tricycling,, as it were).
I do realize that were it not for sailtrikes, I wouldn't be riding RANS bikes.
