I just found out about this guy who bicyced to the South Pole.
Alone !!
The whole way !!
To the South Frikken Pole !!!

I think that is absolutely astounding.

I also think it is astounding that it didn't get more media coverage. I guess he was "just a guy who loved cycling" and not much of a publicity promoter.

It was almost as cold in Antarctica as it was here...but I didn't go out to ride for 9 hours...and I didn't sleep in a tent...

I've been following Scott Expedition ( http://scottexpedition.com/ ) for the past months.
