SARATOGA SPRINGS, Utah – A Saratoga Springs man is biking to the South Pole.

Daniel Burton, who owns a local bike shop, decided to travel to the South Pole to honor his mother, who died last year.

Burton says he just broke the world record for “most distance traveled by bicycle towards the South Pole.”

He began his journey on Dec. 2 from the Hercules Inlet in Antarctica.
