White Ice Cycle


On the 27th December 2013, Maria Leijerstam became the first person in the world to cycle from the edge of the Antarctic continent to the South Pole. She also set the new World Record for the fastest human powered coast to pole traverse, completing her journey in 10 days, 14hrs and 56 minutes.

The world's first cycle to the South Pole from the edge of the Antarctic continent was powered by Powertraveller.

"The Powertraveller solar panel and battery storage unit was perfect for my expedition in Antartica and I could even charge my devices from inside my tent!  I used the powermonkey extreme as I needed to save weight yet have enough energy to power my Sat phone, iPhone, tracking device, camera and iPod.  It was tough and durable and able to withstand the harshest of conditions."
