Dutchman Ebrahim Hemmatnia is pedalling around England in a boat on the 1st stage of a fully human-powered round-the-world trip.

Around the world in 800 days…by bike-boat

Ebrahim Hemmatnia is currently making slow progress around England in a large, boat-shaped recumbent. He describes his adventure as a "tour with the world’s first amphibian and pedal-powered boat."

He landed in England on 19th April and leaves from Lowestoft on 19th May. He won’t be getting the ferry.

Hemmatnia is on Twitter and there’s a blog to follow, too.
