I am going to circle the globe
in a pedal powered boat!

   My name is M. Scott Ault and I’m going to be the first person ever to fully circumnavigate the globe in a Pedal Powered Boat!

    My Boat is going to be 100% Pedal Propelled and.. 100% Powered by Pedalling.. all propulsion and electrical generation conducted by My Two Legs Pumping Away!! Oh- and I’ll be *mostly* self supported

    ..my journey just might be the very first Fully Connected Circumnavigation.. ever.. it looks like I’ll be Digitally ConnectedStarlink has planned an upgrade to their existing satellite network to take place by January of 2023 that will give coverage throughout my entire route! all the time for live, 24-7 Updates on route and.. more!!!



But Why?!?!

Point Blank:
    I want to see more people use cycling to get around!

    Cycling is such an awesome method of transportation.. way better for individual, social, and environmental health than cars.. particularly within urban and suburban environments. So.. I want to see people adopt cycling ‘as thair primary method of day to day and life long mobility.‘ Heck, it’s worked for me, for the most part.. so why not? 

    I’ve been cycling for over 35 years- as a triathlete, as a commuter.. as a bike courier.. and even as a treeplanter. During all that time I have converted exactly one person to ‘the fold.’ Small numbers.. numbers that evidence the exact ability of “leading by example.” 

    I realized that if I wanted to really shake things up.. I needed to do something really sensational.. really eye- catching.. and really news- worthy.. and it had to be done all by pedal power!

Thus- Full Global Circumnavigation…
100% Pedal Propelled..
100% Powered by Pedals!


  • Training Recap - Just a quick recap on training as I haven’t posted anything in this department for awhile. I had a bit of a lapse in training for awhile but am slowly working back towards a two day cycle.. two hours on Day One, weights/ flexibility on day two.. and then start all over again. Age kinda …
  • Mobile Randomness - i have always felt that #repair instead of #discard was better but its a #concept that has been lost, apparently, over the years… #sewing .. #fixing.. #building your needs with your own hands. I’m building my #boat with my own two hands.. and i’ll be #pedalling it around the world .. promoting #sustainability and #selfsufficiency …
  • Mobile Randomness - was in the #boatshed for a brief spell today and, after a bit of #cleanup i decided to ‘tack down’ the #transmission and #captains #chair to see how it laid up… and for the first time in this project, i see how much space i have to deal with in the #cockpit… not a lot …


The Route

I’m leaving from Vancouver, BC, Canada in the spring of 2024 and it’s my plan to arrive back in Vancouver, BC, Canada… about two years later! Check the 30s. vid that estimates the route:

It’s about 45,000km from start to finish.. and at about 4knots per hour, that means I’ll be covering about 100Km per day.. for an estimated travel time of 450 days or 1.25 years of pedalling.. so long as nothing goes wrong.. and I don’t decide to hang out in one or another location for awhile.. or I don’t get sick. That’s why I say it’ll take about two years to get back to Vancouver after I leave.

And I’ll probably be digitally connected from start to finish!
