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.


‘Maria’s courage and dedication is nothing short of astounding. She smashed through all obstacles and uncertainties, to achieve this extraordinary accomplishment. Welcoming her with the Prime Minister David Cameron on her return, I cannot express the admiration I felt as she brought home this remarkable world record. I have no doubt that Maria will continue to inspire us all in the years to come.’ Alun Cairns, Secretary of State for Wales

‘Through her remarkable adventures and endeavours Maria is an inspiration to students and graduates everywhere.’ Professor Kevin Jones, University of Plymouth

‘When you have one shot at a goal, Maria taught us the importance of perfect planning, teamwork, optimism and warm, human inclusive leadership. Business leaders who want to be at the cutting edge will be inspired by her story.' Carl Dalby, CEO Istimor

"Maria's momentous exploration achievements are an inspiration to me and my colleagues. When you have one shot at a goal, she taught us the importance of perfect planning, teamwork, optimism and warm, human, inclusive leadership. Business leaders who want to be at the cutting edge will be inspired by her story. " Dr Marcus Watson, Ground Control.
