Eric Larsen Biking to the South PoleBy Rocky Thompson on November 5th, 2012
Eric Larsen, the Minnesotan who stood at the summit of Everest, and the North and South Poles all in one year will begin a new endeavor this winter when he attempts to bike 750 miles to the South Pole. He’ll pedal on his Minnesota-made Surly Moonlander, which is an XXL fat bike with 5-inch-wide tires designed to “float” over the snow. If he makes the overland journey all the way to the pole, weather permitting, he plans to turn around and ride all the way back. He won’t have any support along the way except for three food drops that he’ll setup in advance. He’s hoping to make a documentary about the ride, hopefully it’s not a comedy.
