Names that other countries have for this feature:
A glacier, 16km long and 2km wide, flowing north from Pedalling Ice Field at the polar plateau between Mount Dearborn and Robinson Peak into Mackay Glacier, Victoria Land. Feature depicted on: NZ AntTopo50-MD07
Approved by New Zealand Geographic Board (NZGB) in 1995, the name alludes to the use of a bicycle as a practical means of transportation by a New Zealand glacial mapping party led by Trevor Chinn, summer season 1992-93, and is part of a theme of cycling names in the area. The geology and glaciology of this glacier was assessed from a camp at Mount Littlepage, and a bicycle used to ascend Mount Dearborn.
