About Author

In 2007 Jonathon Bradshaw, at the age of 36, gave up every modern comfort he had accumulated over his life and started cycling from London to New York via the Arctic Circle. After crossing the barren volcanic deserts of Iceland, only Greenland and its vast polar icecap stood in his way before he could reach North America. This is the story of how Jonathon crossed the Greenland icecap with no previous training, his serendipitous meeting with three Irish explorers that would change his life forever and his place in history as a member of the first Irish team to ski to the South Pole in January 2008. Jonathon lives in Somerset on the edge of the Quantock Hills with his wife Natasha and two children, Anna and Charlie. He has yet to complete his cycle journey from Northern Canada to New York.
