Conquering An Ocean With Pedal Power


They call it the “Graveyard of the Pacific.” Heavy seas and unpredictable weather. A rugged, lonely coastline. Countless ships and sailors taken by its fierce storms and jagged rocks. Westward, nothing to see but North Pacific swells, until Hawaii finally climbs above the horizon. Men have sailed the route for centuries. Now, one man will put his trust in his legs, his heart, and his mind to make a historic journey.

In June, 2010, Greg Kolodziejzyk will attempt to become the first person in history to navigate this notorious stretch of ocean under his own power. His plan – pedal a custom-made state-of-the-art human-powered boat 3000 miles across the Pacific Ocean, from Vancouver to Hawaii. The world-record attempt is expected to take between 40 to 80 days.

Check out this latest example of my web copywriting work. Find out how Greg plans to make the record-setting journey and the important reason why he’s taking on this ambitious project.
