Kate Leeming has taken cycling to a whole new level. She has pedalled a distance greater than twice the world’s circumference and crossed almost every continent, through scorching deserts and bitterly cold polar regions. She has experienced different cultures and people, and bent the ideas of what’s possible to achieve on a bike. She also started the Breaking the Cycle education program to give back to people in regions she visited during her adventures. On this episode she´ll be discussing her next major challenge: The first-ever bicycle crossing of the Antarctic continent via the South Pole.
