In two days, Eric Larsen throws a leg over a stock Surly Moonlander and starts his 750 mile solo ride to the South pole. A good introduction to the expedition was posted online on Nov. 9
at Outside magazine’s website. Here’s a video clip that conveys the enormity of the task, on a good day.
Larsen is well suited to this particular task. He’s proved it can be done. His previous claims to fame include reaching the North and South Poles and the summit of Everest in one calendar year. I think he’s going to battle cold feet.
Larsen is going alone. He’ll stay in touch using a DeLorme beacon and Iridium satellite phone to tweet, post Facebook messages, and provide online updates. You can follow him on EricLarsenExplore.com, @ELExplore on Twitter, and on Facebook.
In the Path of Young Bulls details a team’s five-month-long stint of daily challenges along the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail, one of the USA’s toughest long-distance journeys. The book also serves as a resource for section and long-distance hikers in planning their own CDT adventures, by including daily mileages from starting and ending locations, as well as on-trail reports and conditions for each day’s hike.
$30.00 (plus tax)
