I honestly can't remember the last time I actually rode a bike for any length of time. I always rode when I was younger but somewhere around 1992, it became something I used to do. Not really sure why I gave it up.

I also haven't been in a kayak in a while. I have a friend with a lake house and when I am there I always venture out but I didn't get there last year so my kayak adventures have been limited much like my biking outings.

So why is it when I saw Hudson Valley Water Sports which is located on Abeel Street in Kingston, New York post about their Hydrobikes did I feel immediately drawn to the activity? A hydro bike looks like a bike had a baby with a kayak or a double-hulled sailboat. Either way, it looks so cool.

If I decide to head out this summer I will be sure to share the experience but I think I may brush up on my land biking before I attempt to bike the Hudson River.
