Log of the first bike ride to the South Pole. Daniel Burton, owner of Epic Biking rode a bike from Hercules Inlet on the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole. It has been attempted by others but Daniel Burton is the only person to actually do it.
You really did it outside, barehand?
Yeah you got me there it was a bit of an photo op. But it is kind of cool to see where I was blogging rather than just the inside of a tent. And I was not bare hands. The pearl Izumi gloves I had worked well with the touch screen. I would wear the pearl Izumi gloves, and then my Canada Goose gloves over the top of those and sometimes take the CG gloves off to do things. I was usually able to do things without taking the pi gloves off but there were times I exposed my bare hands to the cold. If I made sure I did it with my back to the wind I could have the gloves off for a minute or two. Other than that I only took the gloves off in the tent. I also had some mittens I got from bear river outfitters that were able to go on over the CG gloves or instead of the CG gloves. The sad thing is I lost the left mitten along the way.
