Tricycling Across The South Pole To Beat The Competition

Riding tricycles down your driveway and on sidewalks around town was a lot of fun when you were a kid, but now tricycles have traded in their all plastic construction for steel frames and treaded rubber tires that can survive a trek across the South Pole.

This tricycle isn’t child’s play- it was made by Inspired Cycle Engineering to survive even the toughest conditions and prove it’s durability in a three person race that started on the edge of Antarctica and ends at the South Pole.

35-year-old Maria Leijerstam is braving the elements to show she has what it takes to beat her competition, who are riding standard bikes, and survive the freezing 400 mile ride across the barren landscape on a tricycle built for one.
