Commute Trip Reduction taken to the extreme...

Ok, so water biking probably won't amount to a significant amount of CTR, because of the limited water ways. Still, we found this innovative commuting video on the Seattle Times website today and thought we would share it. Sorry they didn't mention the name of the manufacturer, but I bet a Google search of "Water Bikes" would turn up some possibilities.

According to the guy in the video, the manufacturer doesn't recommended this bike for commuting in the Puget Sound, but I know a few diehard Spokane bicyclists who would likely embrace this idea. Hey, maybe we could encourage all of our Idaho commuters to ride in on the Spokane River. What do you think?
