In 2016, Kajsa Tylen spent 365 days on a bicycle, in a successful attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the Furthest Distance Cycled in a Year by a woman. She clocked up 52,025 km (32,326 miles) in those 365 days, and battled injuries as well as the weather to achieve her goal. In order to inject a sense of adventure she, rather than ride the same roads the entire year, decided to cycle to her birth-country of Sweden and spend some time seeing the country, and even rode through the midnight sun in the northern parts.

What makes Kajsa’s achievement more extraordinary is that when she started off on the 1st of January 2016, she had only been cycling for just over 3 years. 

In Kajsa’s speech, she talks about the thought process she went through before deciding to take on this epic challenge, and how experiences prior to it helped to shape her future. She talks about her setbacks and how the most difficult part of the year was when the weather was at its best and the scenery its most beautiful.
