With the wonders of technology we can follow a bicycle race to the South Pole live on the internet. The last I heard the British adventurer Maria Leijerstam is in the lead on her fat tire tricycle. Follow the story here or on her website.
It is just the first few days of summer way down under. I’ve been dreaming of cycling Antarctica for a long time. In fact, once I started the application process to work in the warehouse on McMurdo Station, a U.S. Antarctic research center located on Ross Island in Antarctica. But I didn’t think I could cope being alone for another 8 months. Well, like I always say, it’s never too late until your dead.
