SCAR Gazetteer Information: Each place can have one or more entries in the SCAR Composite Gazetteer, dependant on its origin. By viewing an individual entry, you may see multiple references to the same place. SCAR uses a more general feature type coding, so each place will, in general, have multiple feature types.

Drifting moraines located 5 km NW of Skew Peak at the confluent flow of ice from Rim Glacier, Spocket Glacier, and Mackay Glacier, including the moraines at the W side of Rim Glacier, in Victoria Land. Approved by 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.
