Actually the bike in the exhibition was gas-powered not electric IIRC.
And he rode it across a desert in Spain for all of 40 km (might have
been 40 miles - don't quite remeber) - anyway, it would have been a
lot simpler to take an extra water bottle and ride a standard bike.
But less artistic ...

"Zebra mussels have been introduced into the lake and they are taking
