The physical purpose of Breaking the Cycle South Pole, is to make the first bicycle crossing of the Antarctic continent via the South Pole. Starting in December 2017, the 1800km supported journey will take around 42 days, in temperatures as low as -40C and at a maximum altitude of 3000m.
To give the best chance of success, I have surrounded myself with world-class experts in logistics, filmmaking, technology and communications. I have facilitated the development of some innovative technology such as the first all-wheel drive fat-bike, custom-made clothing and the communications strategy. My highly experienced support team includes renowned Swiss filmmaker, Claudio von Planta, British filmmaker and adventurer, Stuart Kershaw and Australian polar explorer Eric Philips OAM as advisor. We will be working with London-based brand and content marketing agency, Captive Minds, and Icelandic logistics company Arctic Trucks, together the only organisations to have successfully managed live streaming across the Antarctic icecap.
In order to perpetuate the value of this expedition, my previous Breaking the Cycle in Africa venture and future projects, I am creating the Breaking the Cycle Foundation. The core principles that I promote through my Breaking the Cycle initiatives are to contribute to the development of our future leaders and to make positive impacts on the communities and the environments of the places I travel through.
