Beach Cyclist



Today's picture shows some cyclist on the beach in Florida. It looks like they have some sails connected to the bicycles to carry them down the beach with the wind. I am guessing they have to pedal back. The picture was taken in 1910.

  1. Now that would be a fun job to be paid to do. It appears the man on the left is not pedaling but letting his sail do the work. What fun! The ride back, maybe not so much. ;)

  2. They likely would return under sail. The winds normally blow across the beach. They could use the same techniques as if they were sailing a boat.
