Something about human-power, pedals and wheels inspired inventors, and if you spend much time on Alaskan trails you will see some odd contraptions rolling by. On the next Outdoor Explorer, we talk with guys who would like to convert you, and everyone else, to recumbent bikes and unicycles. They’re charming and interesting and a little bit odd.
