Pitcairn is an island one mile wide by two miles long in the remote reaches of the South Pacific Ocean. Only about 100 acres of the island can be considered as flat land, with the remaining 1,000 acres very steep. There is one very small village. Running for any distance on Pitcairn is not an option. The roadway from the island's boat landing at Bounty Bay to the village is about three quarters of a mile in length and it is very steep for the most part, with a grade of 30-35% for about two thirds of its length. Because of the steepness of the trails and roads, Pitcairners gain considerable exercise, for they must work hard to maintain their existence on the island that has been made famous by the "Mutiny on the Bounty", one of the world's most widely-known sea stories.
