Extreme paddle boarder Steve Rhoades waits to cheer on Bainbridge Ferry going to the playoff game

12th man gives chilly cheers to ferry

Extreme sports enthusiast Steve Rhoades cheers on the Bainbridge ferry full of Seahawk fans heading for the playoff game on Saturday morning.

Rhoades has paddled around Bainbridge Island several times. No easy feat with a circumference of 28 miles. Rhoades is training to circumnavigate the island again this summer, but with a twist. After paddling around the island, he is going to BIKE around the island. Also a bicycle enthusiast, Rhoades intends to bicycle a 33-mile course with 2675 of overall climbing.

"If the Seahawks can make the playoffs -- there's nothing stopping me from this challenge." Rhoades is making this challenge to bring attention to the work Housing Resources Board is doing as an advocate for affordable housing on Bainbridge Island.
