Man Pedals Bicycle Across San Francisco Bay

The idea to go shore-to-shore came to Schiller four months ago while on a boat beneath the new eastern span of the Bay Bridge.

Like a lot of bicycling enthusiasts, Schiller was thrilled to see the bridge’s bike path that will one day take riders to Treasure Island.

"I thought, ‘Why wait?’ " Schiller said. "So I started using my nights to research."

Schiller, a designer by trade, found a few small manufacturers that made floating kits that would allow any bicycle to snap in. He said the inflatable attachments he used Friday, which can be carried in a small bag, came from Italy and cost about $1,000.
