It’s amazing where a bike can go!

Maria on the bike which helped her be the first cyclist ever to reach the South Pole from the edge of the Antarctic continent.

Welsh Adventurer Maria Leijerstam, 35, pedalled 500 miles across the icy wilderness of Antarctica to win her gruelling record attempt after four years of training.

She managed it in just ten days – 12 days ahead of schedule despite “vicious conditions” across the frozen continent.

Her three-wheel bicycle and daring route gave her the edge over her two male competitors from America and Spain.

Read about her adventures on SBS news or The Express.

Yes more proof that, with the right gear and determination, a girl on a bike can go almost anywhere!
