No bike lane on a bridge? No problem. Just use a water bike. That's what Judah Schiller did to cross the Hudson River on October 3, 2013, when he became the first person to ever ride a bike across the iconic waterway.   "It's the perfect commute. In the time it takes to to buy a ticket for the ferry, sit on the ferry, get off, do all those things ...   Again, a little bit of infrastructure, this could be even easier and certainly cheaper than riding the ferry."   Any bike can be turned into a water bike according to Schiller, who founded the BayCycle Project in San Francisco, an organization dedicated to water biking.  The bike is retro fitted with a drive mechanism that is attached near the seat post.  There is also a heavy cylinder much like the kind that is used on stationary bikes.  So as the rider pedals the cylinder moves and then turns the propeller.   There are two inflatable pontoons that can be blown up just before a rider hits the water.  The entire system folds up into a backpack and weighs less than 20 lbs (9 kg).
