People ski to the North Pole all the time pulling a 100kg sled. This bike ride is peanuts in comparison. People actually live in Tuk their entire lives. I'd just be visiting for a couple of weeks. Only a tourist in their eyes.

The desert ride was 600km with one resupply. It was fine. The winter ride will be harder, but is manageable.
