Akimbo Circles the Globe


Akimbo Systems is going on an Expedition.

The Internet-delivered video-on-demand platform will debut the first four episodes of Expedition 360's documentary of an attempt to be the first to circumnavigate the globe solely by human-powered transportation.

In 1994, Englishmen Jason Lewis and Steve Smith set out to travel around the world using only bikes, pedal boats, kayaks and other human-powered means, and they have already completed more than 25,000 miles.

“The series is perfect for Akimbo because it combines a story of ambition and drive with wonderful visuals," Akimbo CEO Joshua Goldman said in a prepared statement.
