Her most recent challenge is a pre-cursor to an even bigger one. Kate has cycled 400km North - south of Liverpool Land, Greenland, on a custom built fat bike. She's battled snow storms and gales, and the biting cold to cover the distance over a 3 week course.

However, this is just training for an Antarctic expedition via south pole: "Breaking the Cycle South Pole" which will take place November/December/January 2016-2017. Dr Kate Leeming, together with her fat bike, will attempt to cycle across Antarctica.
