The Polartec® Challenge

I’ve just submitted Cycling South America as an entry for next year’s Polartec® Challenge, an international competition that “supports the spirit and practice of outdoor adventure” by offering funding to “frugal, low impact teams who respect the local culture and environment and serve as role models to outdoor enthusiasts worldwide”.

Polartec® might be associated more with more “outdoorsy” activities – indeed, this year’s winners are mainly climbers and the like – but there’s a possibility that they’ll consider an (amateur) expedition such as this so it’s worth a punt. Obviously if I get anywhere you’ll be the first to know!

Oh, and if you’re also considering applying you’ll need to be quick as the deadline is at the end of this month…
