Glenn Charles is on a quest to travel more than 50,000 miles by human powered transportation. He aims to use these travels to inspire people of all ages to reconnect with nature and lead simpler lives. Over the past three years, Glenn has led a nomadic existence, traveling over 6,000 miles in an NDK explorer, his kayak of choice, and over 7,000 miles using a Salsa Fargo bicycle. While solo kayaking, Glenn has traveled up the Inside Passage, circumnavigating Glacier Bay and the San Juan Islands. Following that expedition, Glenn transitioned to Key West where he paddled the 3,300 mile eastern seaboard of North America via the Atlantic Ocean, finishing only upon reaching Nova Scotia.
In addition to his exploration via kayak, Glenn has also cycled around North America, North Africa and Ireland. Glenn will continue to push the boundaries of human power travel with new expeditions on both the water and land including a 2012/2013 expedition that will cross the Arctic circle.
