This Saturday over 700 riders will set out to cycle the famous British route of Lands End to John O’Groats in just 9 days, and joining them will be Kajsa Tylen who’s currently attempting to break the record for number of cycled miles in 1 year.
On January 1st 2016, Kajsa Tylen set out to break the current record of 29,603 miles which was set 77 years ago by Billie Dovey. We caught up with her earlier in the year to chat about the challenges that lie ahead, you can read more from that interview here.
Kajsa began this incredible challenge to help promote, and inspire a healthy lifestyle among men and women. Instead of fundraising, Kajsa has asked supporters to “pledge sweat” by committing to an exercise goal for the year, and so far, she’s had 145 pledges.
Having already clocked up more than 20,000 miles this year, Kajsa will be joining Deloitte Ride Across Britain for day 4 of the ride which will travel from Ludlow to Haydock. This segment of the journey will enable Kajsa to clock up 101 miles towards her target goal with 700 other riders along for the trip.
Follow Kajsa’s progress throughout the year via her Strava account page here. If you’re feeling inspired to make a “sweat pledge”, there’s still time to register for Ride the Night: Women’s Vs. Cancer 2017, and the 2017 LEJOG Ride with Deloitte.
