America reCycled: The best web content I have seen in a while

On one level America reCycled is simply the journal of two brothers riding recycled bicycles across the United States and meeting people. Lots of them. On another level it is a Homeric tale of an American adventure. It has been a long time since I have seen web content of this quality. The writing is superb, the videos so compelling you can't look away and the perspective gained is invaluable. I am positive this has been posted here before, but it certainly deserves a bump.

It turns out there are three bike tours in New York City. You can also run or blade through the the city. The Super Roll is a lot less tiring than the bike tours or the marathon.
