It had been proved impossible, but
on December 27, 2013, Maria Leijerstam
from Great Britain became the first person
in the world to cycle to the South Pole.
For four years, Maria fought against every
obstacle. How was she going to fund this
mission? What was the best cycle for the
job? Would this ordinary woman be fit
and strong enough to fulfil her dream,
especially with strong male competition
from around the world?
Maria writes from her heart and reveals
a world of adventure that is accessible to
everyone who has a dream.
