    1 thought on “Pedalling to Hawaii: A Human Powered Adventure

    1. Despite the colossal goal set (to circumnavigate the earth by human power) the author surprisingly concludes that setting goals and achieving them is not the most important thing. He discovers that enjoying the journey by staying positive is the key to happiness. He Inspires the reader to enjoy living in the moment and to appreciate the wonders of the world. This is a genuine account with some great anecdotes and there are plenty of laughs along the way.

    2. What a great book about dreaming big even if you have no bloody idea what you're doing! Stevie Smith and Jason bike, pedal a custom boat and skate (Jason) from London to Hawaii. Very interesting to read about their struggles. What's up with these Brits going on mind boggling (stupid) adventures- cf. Tony Hawk!

    3. honest, detailed account of crossing the atlantic ocean, the continental US, and the pacific ocean to hawaii using all human power. one thing that touched me is how little money they had during the entire trip. also the halucinations during the months at sea. Stevie put himself in a fantastic position to look at different ways to be alive.

    4. I completely related to Steve in his motivation to embark on a crazy adventure, and that made me continue with the book. An amazing feat of endurance and some insightful and important lessons learned on the journey. I'd be interested to read the Expedition by Jason Lewis too.

    5. Enjoyed this honest account of Steve and Jason's attempt to circumnavigate the globe by human power alone. Many times I caught myself thinking what an amazing adventure as well as thinking this is completely nuts.
