All told, the team succeeded, completing their travels on December 16 – and they’ve got a helluva story to tell the grandbabes in years to come.
The website tells us that they had a few setbacks, including “an unexpected blizzard forced the expedition team to alter their course more than once.”
Here was the Phase Trajectory for the group:
Across the Icy Continent.
“The expedition begins, as the team embarks from Novo on a 12-day drive across Antarctica to the Indian Research Station on the Ross Ice Shelf.”
Destination: South Pole!
“The team takes off on their epic 770 km journey to the Amundsen-Scott Pole Station at the Earth’s geographic South Pole.”
The Way Back Home.
“Our heroes drive west to Union Glacier, where a flight will be waiting to take them back to civilization.”
“Ever since our wheels began turning in 1901, we’ve been an ally for exploration of thousands of riders who’ve made the maps reveal new routes to uncharted places,” states Royal Enfield’s website.
“In our 120th year, this journey has put us on a path to the Last Continent, as our two riders carry the spirit of the motorcycling community across Antarctica – through the coldest, loneliest, harshest and driest desert on earth – all the way to the South Pole.”
